lyrics

If I was your son, I'd be on my way out of here
If I was your son, I'd be on a boat to somewhere else
In a boat to somewhere else

But I'm not your son, I'd be a terrible child
I'd be proud and weak, in a boat to somewhere else
In a boat to somewhere else

Will you be home in a while?
Will you be home in a while?
When can I stop waiting for you?
Will you be home in a while?

How can I go, when you you said you'd be home just a little while?
Yet they expect me to dance in perpetual mourning
A trance of perpetual mourning

Will you be home in a while?
Will you be home in a while?
When can I stop waiting for you?
Will you be home in a while?

I've unpicked my loom for you
I've unpicked my loom for you
I've unpicked my loom for you
And I can't bear to be wrong

If I had the chance to take a terrible vengeance
I'd drown your boat in the midst of my anger
You'd sink in my Charybdis of anger
You'd sink in a boat to somewhere else
In a boat to somewhere else

Will you be home in a while?
Will you be home in a while?
When can I stop waiting for you?
Will you be home in a while?

I've unpicked my loom for you
I've unpicked my loom for you
I've unpicked my loom for you
And I can't bear to be wrong
