Mavis Staples – Come Home

Lyrics

How did it come to this?
You livin’ in your world and me dyin’ in mine
Lord knows I don’t deserve this
I never gave you any reason to treat me unkind
Each day that goes by I grow lonelier
Sadder than the day before
I’d give anything just to hold you in my arms
Or see you standin’ at my door

’cause darlin’, you mean more than words could explain
Ooh darlin’, the pain, it cuts so deep

And it’s only a matter of time
Before I go right out of my mind
I don’t care who was wrong
I only know that when you’re gone
I think about you every day
Why’d you have to go away and leave me all alone?
Won’t you please come home, baby?
(Baby, won’t you please come home? I don’t want to be alone)
Come home
(Baby, won’t you please come home? I don’t want to be alone)

Why did we ever part?
You were my lover and I was your friend
How did this argument start?
Couldn’t we just kiss and start over again?
Whoever said all good things soon come to an end
Never had anybody like you
There’s a pounding in the pit of my heart
Whenever I think of what we used to do
(Ooh, the things we use to do)

’cause darlin’, you mean more than words could explain
Darlin’, darlin’, the pain cut so deep

And it’s only a matter of time
‘Fore I go right out of my mind
I don’t care who was wrong
I only know that when you’re gone
I think about you every day
Why’d you have to go away, leave me all alone?
Won’t you please come home, baby?
(Baby, won’t you please come home? I don’t want to be alone)
I can’t take it no more
Come on, come on, come on, come on, baby

Looky here
I got somethin’ I want to say
You know I never treated you bad
You know I was the best you ever had
I know it’s just a matter of time
‘Fore I go right out of my mind

Ow!
Baby, help me
Oh baby

It’s just a matter of time before I go right out of mind
I don’t care who was wrong, baby
All I know, all I know is that when you’re gone
I say when you’re gone
I think about it every day any old kind of way
Why’d you leave me, why’d you leave me?
Why’d you go away?
Baby, baby, won’t you come home?

(Baby, won’t you please come home? I don’t want to be alone)
Come on, come on home
Help me ? come on, come on home
(Baby, won’t you please come home? I don’t want to be alone)
Somebody help me
Come on, come on home
