Brandi Carlile- What Did I Ever Come Here For + Lyrics

I've been gone for so long
And how i've missed you
My heart was aching for home

And then one night as i lay down
Somewhere far from you
I dreamt that I heard you call my name
But my mind was playing games

I knew right then that I'd return
To where I was before
And I was so tired of being away
That I just couldn't stay anymore

What did I ever come here for?
oh no no no no no
What did i ever come here for?

I thought if I showed up in the night
In my best disguise
There was a doorway in your porch light
That you would look into my eyes
And you would realize who i am
Put your arms around me
You're gonna love me so much more
Than you ever did before

What did i ever come here for?
oh no no no no no
What did i ever come here for?

It wasn't too long before
I showed up at your door
I've been gone a thousand miles

i didn't know how much more i could stand
If I could stand at all
You said it looked like i'd been through World War Two
And my soul was worn right through

I thought you would read my mind
I thought you'd ask me to stay
You never turned me away like before
But you closed your door anyway

What did i ever come here for?
oh no no no no no
What did i ever come here for?
oh no no no no no
What did i ever come here for?
oh no no no no no
What did i ever come here for?
