I'm not much for making little wishes
But I'd like a little wish to come true for you
I'm not talking about loaves and fishes
But I wish that there was something I could do for you
Here's a little bit of cheap advice
To be taken in an hour of need
Don't assume that the life you left
Is the life you have to lead

(chorus)
When you come home what you gonna do
Oh brother, oh brother
Don't you try to deny
What you know to be true
The same mess of misery that you done been through
Standing in line
And it's waiting for you
One kiss leads to another
Brother when you come back home

I'd like to know who's knocking on door
I'd like to know what they come here for
You'd like to say no
But the words won't come
Come in and sit down, seem to roll off your tongue
You forget to remember, to never die young
One kiss leads to another
Brother when you come back home
Standing in line, all of your friends
Standing in line, party never ends
Standing in line, the river flows, the river bends
Standing in line, all of your friends

- chorus -

And that moon will be
Shining in the trees
All night long
Something bound to happen for sure
Soon you'll be
Stopping by talking to a friend again
Swear you ain't never tasted nothing so pure

- chorus -

When you come home, your friends are dropping by
When you come home, the moon is gonna shine
When you come home, I tell you no lie
When you come home, they're gonna offer you a line
Standing in line, all of your friends
Standing in line, party never ends now
Standing in line, the river flows, the river bends
Standing in line, all your so called friends
Standing in line, when you come home
Standing in line, oh brother, oh brother now
Standing in line, when you come home
Standing in line, what you're gonna do now
Standing in line...
