You’re home again, I’m glad you kept the key,
been waiting here, it seemed a million years to me.
But hush now, I know you’re all cried out,
it’s all right inside, I’ve had no doubt.
About your love for me, I can see behind the tears,
I’m certain of the way we feel, and given time the hurt will heal.
I need you, I think I always will,
from time to time you play around, but I love you still.
You tried them all, at everybody’s beck and call,
but maybe you’ll resist them all when I tell you how I missed you.
Fallen angel, I’ll forgive you anything,
you can’t help the things you do,
now something’s gotten hold of you,
Fallen angel, got a demon in your soul,
and later when the fever’s gone,
I’ll be here where you belong.
You’re home again, so won’t you close the door,
stay here with me and we’ll forget what’s gone before.
So hold me tight, our love is gonna make it right,
put shadows way beyond recall, the ghost has almost gone.
