lyrics

Forgive me, friend, if I seem cold
But I've played this game and it's getting old
And I don't know what to do with you

Time and time and time once again
You've broken promises and you've committed sins
And I know you, and you know me, but who the hell are we?

Good things come to those who wait
And I've done my best, but it's getting late
Everything inside of me, says to give up on you

Your words come easy and your talk is cheap
And you're running out of promises not to keep
I can see now, that it's wearing down on you too


And I'll leave the light on
The front door's open
I'm waiting for you
And I'll leave the light on
The front door's open
I'm waiting for you


Every time I think you're settling down
You pack up all your things and you go ahead and skip town
And you take what little's left of me with you


You're like the prodigal son and Hosea's wife
All rolled up in a ball and you're wielding a knife
And I can see in your eyes that the night's not been kind to you


Just when I thought that you'd left this place
You show up in that door and show your pretty face
And I can't help but think that things will be better this time


And I'll leave the light on
The front door's open
I'm waiting for you
And I'll leave the light on
The front door's open
I'm waiting for you


Maybe you're back from where you lost your way
And maybe sometimes the only words to say are: "Hello"
And "Welcome Home."

about

The Olde Souls and the Makeshift Band Columbus, Ohio

Tired of playing boring gigs to bored audiences, a pair of singer-songwriters/lifelong friends decided to join forces and start a band. Assembling a cast of friends around them they formed the Epic (read: Pretentious) Folk group "The Olde Souls". They may never be famous, they may never find their music in regular rotation on radio, but they'll be sure to entertain, and have a good time doing it. ... more
