Come Home

LYRICS

STILL THE ONE

I never say every word that I’m thinking
But maybe I should when it looks like you’re sinking below
Cause I get wrapped up in my own little bubble
It helps me to focus but gets me in trouble, I know

So let me take time to reveal my emotion,
A moment of truth just to show my devotion,
A letter of love you can always come back to and read

You’re still the one who leaves me weak and breathless
One look my way and I feel so defenseless
The touch of your skin makes me want to come in from the cold

Time marches on, never slows down for anyone
It’s hard to find time for the tenderness everyone needs…
So I do my best not to rest and to show it,
But if I should falter I hope that you know how I feel

I thank the stars for the life that I’m living
Cause nothing comes close to the love that you’ve given to me

You’re still the one who leaves me weak and breathless
One look my way and I feel so defenseless
The touch of your skin makes me want to come in from the cold

You’re still the good times, and you’re still the laughter,
And you’re still the one for me all this time after
As sure as the rising sun baby well, you’re still the one

Baby, well look what we’ve done
Feels like we’ve only begun…

COME HOME

A baby’s eyes are looking up at me
And I want you to see them
Countless excuses that you gave to me
So how could I believe them?

A change of heart is what I’ll need to help me read
Between the lines of love and loveless starts
Cause we’re too far apart

When will you finally come home?
When will you finally come home?
Cause you’re just a voice on the phone,
And I feel so alone
When will you finally come home?

The hands of time aren’t turning back for you,
Sad but true…
Cause time is so deceiving
And there’s a world beyond yourself,
How I wish you’d see what it means to me,
Well I won’t stop believing…

Please change your heart,
There’s so much more worth living for,
Just open up the door so we can start
Cause we’re too far apart

UNDONE

I’m tired, I’m torn
I’m beat, I’m worn
I know you’re not around now
But somehow you still found your way back in

No sleep, no rest
I’ve been put to the test
I have to let you go now
But I don’t think I know how,
I’ve climbed the highest mountain
and I can’t come down…

Cause every time I tell myself it’s over
Then I know it’s only just begun
Cause every time you come around
I always come undone
And even if I try to shrug my shoulders
And tell myself I know you’re not the one
Still every time you come around
I always come undone

So I’ll try once more,
Try to live like before and tell myself it’s over-
I’ll never let you have a hold on me.
But your words, and your touch
It’s all too much
The memories still find me,
And everything reminds me of everything you showed me
And I can’t go on…


THE WORLD YOU LIVE IN

You’re losing your grip and it’s driving you mad
But it’s not like you lost what you had
So you try to hold on with what’s left of your might
While you’re hopelessly losing the fight

Then you knock at my door cause you’d like to come in…

But you can’t go on with the way that you’ve been
It’s not like I’m asking, so bare it and grin
I just might give out if you just won’t give in
So give up on the world you live in

Happiness shines on the ones who let go
Could it be there’s still things you don’t know
Won’t you lay down your arms and relinquish control
Cause it’s bound to just swallow you whole

And the hardest adjustment is where to begin…

But you can’t go on with the way that you’ve been
It’s not like I’m asking, so bare it and grin
I just might give out if you just won’t give in
So give up on the world you live in

Take a look at yourself and the mess that you’re in
Your blood starts to boil while your head starts to spin
You’re waging a war there’s no way you can win
So give up on the world you live in

On and on it goes, ( It’s over, give up, you’re gonna give in )
Think no one knows? ( Don’t fight it, give up, you’re gonna give in )
It’s all that shows ( It’s over, give up on the world you live in )

SINCE I LET YOU GO

We did our time, it ran the course it had to run
Nothing left to say, what’s done is done
Though I confess I have been known to second-guess
No chance here I’ve left myself with less…

Cause I know since I let you go
Things have only fallen into place
And I know that it may be hard to swallow
But your absence puts a smile upon my face

Hard to believe it took so long to close the deal
So long ‘til I felt the way I feel
But I drew the line, so even if from time to time
Fading memories somehow cross my mind…

I know since I let you go
Things have only fallen into place
And I know that it may be hard to swallow
But your absence puts a smile upon my face

WHERE DOES IT GO?

I wonder what I might find if I walked through your mind
What kind of secrets are lyin’ ‘round
How can you swallow your pride, no sign of feeling
No sign of a good man to be found,
And no-one seems to know…

Where does it go? Where do you hide it?
Tell me your secret, cause I’d like to know
Are you really that cold, and just never minded
You’re a saint on the outside, but it’s all just for show
So where does it go?

So look me straight in the eye and tell me you’re all right
Tell me you’re happy with the man that you’ve become
Cause I’m sure it’s a matter of time before it starts to feel like
You’ve worn out your welcome with anyone and everyone

Where does it go? Where do you hide it?
Tell me your secret, cause I’d like to know
Are you really that cold, and just never minded
You’re a saint on the outside, but it’s all just for show
So where does it go?

How will you find it ,
When you can’t decide what you’re looking for?
You’ve kept it all inside you, all that’s really not like you
Oh where does it go?

LUCKY MAN

Lost hope long ago, lost the will to live and grow
Lost sight of all you always had
Last breath has lasted long,
But long before the breath is gone
There’s time to come to understand

Still you think I’m the lucky one
When luck is all you’ve had
It’s all right there in front of you,
The world within your hands.
But you’ve let time take over you,
So take the time you can…

Turned off and turned around,
The world was out to turn you down
Turns out it’s all inside your head.
Turn back the clock, you’ll find
It’s only you who turned the tides
Your turn to help yourself instead…

Cause you think I’m the lucky one
Well luck is all you’ve had.
Funny, it’s all right there in front of you,
The world within your hands.
But you’ve let time take over you,
So take the time you can…
You’re all it takes to be a lucky man.

TOO LATE

Just when I thought my life was passing me by,
I remembered angels can fly

Until now I never stopped to wonder why
Until now there was no reason to decide
And I’m sure you’d like to have your chance to change my mind
But nothing you could find could turn back time

It’s too late to turn to me for answers
Too late to beg, the well’s run dry
Too late to think we can talk it over
And too late to come to realize
It’s too late to reason, you’ve had your chances
Too late to make me turn on my belief
Cause I know what I need

I never saw this coming - took me by surprise
Didn’t know I had so many things to realize
And I’m sure you’d like to have your chance to work it out
But I’m all out of how to save you now

It’s too late to turn to me for answers
Too late to beg, the well’s run dry
Too late to think we can talk it over
And too late to come to realize
It’s too late to reason, you’ve had your chances
Too late to make me turn on my belief
Cause I know what I need

All alone, I’m on my own to feel the chills and face the cold
I have before, but here I go again
Why’d I wait? – It’s not too late to re-return and change my fate
I can’t go on with having to pretend…

WALKING ON EGGSHELLS

I try to always play nice
Give in and sacrifice
But trying to please you is a roll of the dice
And guess who’s left paying the price

I’m walking on eggshells, I’m treading thin ice
Cause anything I tell you could never make things right
It’s a fragile situation when the patience starts to wear
And like a bull in a china shop, you’re completely unaware
And it’s getting us nowhere

So tell me, which way should I go?
Stop me when you think you know
I’m watching my words, speaking painfully slow
Scared of tipping the first domino

I’m walking on eggshells, I’m treading thin ice
Cause anything I tell you could never make things right
It’s a fragile situation when the patience starts to wear
And like a bull in a china shop, you’re completely unaware
And it’s getting us nowhere

So I’ll give this thing on more shot
Throw all my chips in the pot
I tell you I’m happy with the outcome we’ve got
…though I’m not

INTO THE BLACK

We’ve lost control,
We’re changing so much faster than we can change.
The essence of our nature’s gone a bit strange.
When will we give birth to thought before we soar?
Let lifeblood be the spirit that it was before…

And where do we intend to go
With all that we have come to know?
And who knows what to keep and what to throw away?
We walk like angels into the black
And hope to god we all come back
Well there has got to be another way
I pray

Don’t look back,
There’s nothing that we do that can be undone,
And fighting fire with fire will only burn someone.
Looks like we’ll be gone before there’s time to know
What our life could have been if we had lived it slow.

And where do we intend to go
With all that we have come to know?
And who knows what to keep and what to throw away?
We walk like angels into the black
And hope to god we all come back
Well there has got to be another way
I pray

If you could tell me what you hope to find,
Then maybe I could understand the glow that’s in your eyes…

Where do we intend to go
With all that we have come to know?
And who knows what to keep and what to throw away?
We walk like angels into the black
And hope to god we all come back
Well there has got to be another way, I pray
Where will we be years from now?
If only I could know somehow
If only I could live to see the day
With all these tears I don’t know how
We dare to think we’re good for now
Well there has got to be another way
I pray

WITH LULLABIES

In your brand new skin wondering “where do I begin?”
All these seas to cross and mountains to be climbed
So much love to give so much life that’s left to live
But if you’re scared at all by what you’ll come to find

Cry, cry, son it’s good to cry
Time heals, but everything takes time
So I’ll stay right here by your side
To sing you back to sleep with lullabies

When darkness fills the sky, it’s time to close your eyes
Rest your weary head and say goodnight
Soon the morning light will replace the dark of night
And if your dreams awake you, baby it’s alright

Cry, cry, boy it’s good to cry
Time heals, but everything takes time
And I’ll be right here by your side
To sing you back to sleep with lullabies

ABOUT

ABOUT SHELI

With flavors of pop, folk, and rock, woven together into 3-minute-something crafty pop gems, Sheli Stevens' debut CD "Come Home" is laden with catchy melodies, profound lyrics, and highlights the talented singer's unmistakable vocal stylings. It is one of those rare CD's in your collection that you'll want to listen to from beginning to end, without ever touching the 'skip' button.
“Pop music these days is represented by seas of faceless personalities with loud heavy beats and layers of auto-tuned vocals. Thankfully, Sheli Stevens’ debut is a reminder of a time when pop music was created by hopeful strums on an acoustic guitar.”
Jason Gladu, Popjournalism.ca
“a lush, melodic blend of pop and folk-rock… “Come Home” has a handful of tracks that could become hits, given the chance.”
John Kereiff, gonzomagazine.ca
