Your old bedroom is just how you left it
It's here for you when you come home
We are all over the place. We are restless.
We will subdue when you come home

You finish unpacking. We sit down together.
But something's strange
The seats unhinge and rearrange
when you come home

You sweat soundly. The afternoon goes on.
It's what we face when you come home
Then, in a flash, you find yourself out on the streets with no clothes on
You freeze in place and then come home

A new kind of family is breathing, sweetie
Shadows assume
in every corner of the room
when you come home

All I do is follow you around
and pick up all your dirty clothes,
and do you think I'm made of money?
And where do you think you're going?

I will cave and indulge your regression
when I don't want to sleep alone
And if you suddenly leave, I won't question
Just let me know when you'll come home

You change the subject and the friction gathers
We're close enough
We will incarcerate our love
when you come home
