Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song after the break up of a 3 year relationship with my boyfriend who met somebody else but my friends marraige also was goin through a rocky stage at the time and she came to stay with me so i think its a mix of some of her emotions and mine ..

Lyrics and music by Martina Flaherty

Lover why arnt you home waiting for me
lover your not the place your meant to be
now i stare at the wall
and i wait for your call to me

lover why arnt you home waiting for me
Lover why does your phone say your busy
now i pace the floor and i worry some more
cant you see


I could stand with my two hands up in the air
and give you pleasure oh
do you think thats fair
but the flowers are burning
and your heart is turning away from me
cant you see
dont rub me out like a spelling mistake
oh you know my heart it will break
lover come home come home come home soon to me .

3rd verse

Lover what have i done to make you sad
lover your the best love i ever had
i dont know what il do
if youve been untrue to me

4th verse

Lover why have you nothing to say
lover why do you turn the other way
now my soul is a slave for the love that i crave from you .

Repeat chorus
