In the white house on the hill That is where I lost my will, To learn In the woods that surround it You never would have found it, Again In the white house by the sea That is where I learn to be, Alone And the birds that flew past it They never would have lasted, in there [Chorus] Now when the white house calls To the lights I crawl To the lights I crawl In the white house on the island I learnt old age is tiresome, for all All the boats that come near it have only learnt to fear it, for now For all the years I've lived The words I'm left with, Are few From white house by the sea to the city of silent dreams, I'll run [Chorus] Now when the white house calls To the lights I crawl To the lights I crawl From now on I will live Give all I've got to give, to life I'm the island, I'm the sea And all I want to be, Is me out here [Chorus] Now when the white house calls To the lights I crawl To the lights I crawl Now when the white house falls To the streets I'll call To the streets I'll call

I saw the commotion When branches start falling On the trees of the past The leaves never last at all When old friends stop calling The path that leads home Is always alone for some But all the commotion Leaves us on our own but you're never alone [Chorus] You might find peace in a book But you won't find love if you look And the lives of the lovers it took No you won't find love if you look I saw your intentions Eyes wide like fawn dear and your legs frail and young have a verse to be sung for sure As you start to yawn dear The search you are on Won't be too long I know But for all your intentions The path that leads home Is always alone for some [Bridge] All the signs Cry out All the bonds die out All the lives continue

Sometimes I'm more aware The comfort that you are there Sometimes I can't respond Cos I just can't repair Sometimes I lose my sight But I still stand and stare Sometimes I breath too fast And I just gasp for air Won't you take me from this island Far away To another land where I can Grow old Won't you take me from this island Far away To another land where I can Grow older Sometimes I'm more in tune and I can play for you Sometimes I need some space Oh but that's nothing new Sometimes I drift away But I don't know where to Sometimes I lose myself And I just call for you

Leaving home Feels like autumn Falling leaves And the ground that caught them I know There isn't far to go I know You will be coming home Travelling Feels distorted Lessons learned House is haunted I know There isn't far to go I know You will be coming home I won't wait But I'll still be here when you return Tell me now what did you learn Tell me now would you wait your turn I won't wait

As the dawn breaks And the sky turns blue All the birds cry Yeah they cry for you (come home) Lest the wind breaks And the trees do to (come home, home, home) As the ice melts and the cliffs fall through When the waves crash They crash in to you (come home) All the lights gone 'Til the day is new (come home, home, home) Time is healing But the now hurts, true Now he sleeps and He waits for you (come home) I am grateful that he gave us you (come home, home, home)
