​If You Lived Here

This song is by The Tragically Hip.

Rest her head and yesterday she's kicking up some dust
Patience ain't a virtue baby patience is a must
I wreck her a good lot of letters trying to write a word
(A record of curt love letters find the writer's words)
She dares me on the telephone she says "come on baby who'll flare up first?"

If you lived here you'd be home by now anyhow anyway
If you lived here you'd be home by now any day

Well I'm never where the heart is even when I'm home
Well not so much 'cause we're travelling where is the pill I loathe?
(Not so much for the rambling what is the being alone)
Well I'd light up for anything I'd light up all day
When I get my mind made up for me if the sky's in front of me get out of my way

If I could summon all my indecision that's what I'd do
(If all or some of my indecision if that's what I felt)
Put it in the corner start our lives anew
(Put it in a corner stored with lies and guilt)
I would never murder my baby with the pain
(I may remember my living in pain)
Where the roads have got us off wandering hey
(The road's the (?) some wondering)

What you think you're going to do? where else you going to go?
I may not be the man you want but I'm the only man you know
Well she gathered up all the jack o' lanterns she took them on out to the woods
And she kicked in all the carved out faces of our little neighbourhood

If you lived here you'd be home by now anyhow anyway
If you lived here you'd be home by now any time of the day
