Song Description

'Time To Go Home' is steeped in melancholy. It's time to go home to bury your head in the sand, but then as time passes, you are able to disect everything about your life and relationship/past relationship. Quite often things were staring you in the face, and you feel like you knew it all along, but didn't have the power to do anything about it, so just carried on as if everything was ok. 'Smash my face in, see if my smile's still on' is possibly the most poignant line in the whole song. The use of the strings for me really brings out the drawn-out melancholy of the song, and the pace of the whole song helps to portray the constant regularity of moving forward and not often looking back.

Lyrics

Time to go home,
To lie face down in your pillow.
Like a dog to a bone,
You can be savage.

And you keep running on and on,
But you're so preoccupied, you just can't find your way.
Pray people hold on ahead,
You know you're just so far behind today.

Traumatising things
Are what you're built on.
Smash my face in,
See if my smile's still on.

'Cause you'll keep running on and on,
And be too preoccupied to notice things have changed.
And I won't hold on up ahead,
I'll leave you far behind and I just won't feel your pain.

Ooohh, please hear me in my head.
I speak out loud, but I don't make a sound.
Ooooo, forget the things I've said,
I don't make sense, oh no.


Love can't fix that bridge
That you were travellin'
Pick those brain cells,
See your mind unravellin'

You gotta keep runnin' on and on,
And if you fall just jump back up and hit the road,
You may not see your spirit rise with you,
But you will be ok I know.
