Nobody Home

NOBODY HOME
(Siedah Garrett, Glen Ballard)
MAIN STREET, U.S.A., BOARDED UP AND DRY
KNOWIN’ WHAT ONCE WAS HERE JUST MAKES ME WANNA CRY
USED TO BE THE FAVORITE PLACE
NOW, WHAT REMAINS ARE MEMORIES EVEN TIME COULD NOT ERACE

OLD MAN JOHNSON’S STORE, WHERE WE GREW UP TOO FAST
ALL THAT REMAINS TODAY ARE ECHOES FROM THE PAST
USED TO BE A BOOMIN’ TOWN
ALL THAT’S LEFT IS EITHER BROKEN UP OR BROKEN DOWN

SINGIN’ OH, WHERE WE USED TO BELONG, THERE AIN’T NOBODY HOME
SAID OH, YOU CAN KNOCK ALL YOU WANT, BUT AIN’T NOBODY HOME
PACK UP, MOVED AWAY, RUNNIN’ FROM THE PAST
LEAVIN’ BEHIND THE DUSTY DREAMS AND BROKEN GLASS
USED TO BE A BUSY TOWN
NOW, EVERYBODY PASSES THROUGH, BUT THEY DON’T STICK AROUND

SINGIN’ OH, WHERE WE USED TO BELONG, THERE AIN’T NOBODY HOME
SAID OH, YOU CAN KNOCK ALL YOU WANT, BUT AIN’T NOBODY HOME

WAS A NEWSSTAND ON THE CORNER, RIGHT NEXT TO THE BARBER SHOP
AND DOWN THE STREET THERE, THAT’S WHERE ALL THE KIDS WOULD STOP
AND THEY WOULD TEASE THE NEIGHBOR’S BULLDOG, LAUGH AND RUN AWAY
NOW, THERE’S NO ONE LEFT WHO KNOWS THE TRUTH IN WHAT YOU SAY

YEAH OH, WHERE WE USED TO BELONG, THERE AIN’T NOBODY HOME
SAID OH, YOU CAN KNOCK ALL YOU WANT, BUT AIN’T NOBODY HOME
TALK ALL YOU WANT, BUT AIN’T NOBODY HOME
KNOCK ALL YOU WANT, BUT AIN’T NOBODY HOME
