Lyrics: 

My Heart is not your home - Lyrics

Verse 1
I hope you don't take this the wrong way
but I've long moved on from you
it's not that I don't believe what you say
I just have doubts that it's true
it's just too....

Chorus
It's too risky
It's more trouble than it's worth
endless destruction
when we come crashing down to earth
you say you miss me
or maybe you just hate being alone
I can't let you in
my heart is not your home

Verse 2
We've tried before and I wasn't enough
remember you wanted me to change
since then I've realized that, that wasn't love
besides I'm still exactly the same
such a shame......

Chorus
It's too risky
It's more trouble than it's worth
endless destruction
when we come crashing down to earth
you say you miss me
or maybe you just hate being alone
I can't let you in
my heart is not your home

Bridge
You despise all the clothes I wear
you wanted me to ditch my friends
loneliness is why you're here
so don't otherwise pretend

Chorus
It's too risky
It's more trouble than it's worth
endless destruction
when we come crashing down to earth
you say you miss me
but really you just hate being alone
I can't let you in
my heart is not your home

Outro
you say you miss me
but really you just hate being alone
I can't let you in
my heart is not your home

Oh, man--these lyrics really click now. I saw them on another site and thought they were nice, but you've polished them up even more here. And the 1+ 1 performance is really wonderful. Excellent melody composition and the piano and vocals do a fine job of delivering these plaintive lyrics. The emotion that soaks into the vocal gives it a very appealing authenticity. Great job.

Nice work, has a very contemporary sound and a great hook.

I love the title. Good lyric that sets out the story, simply and undramatically (which is reflected in the music and delivery). Poignant in general, and hard-hitting in the bridge and outro (the bare truth).

Lovely delicate piano accompanying really heartfelt lyrics. Very honest and emotional. Really nice!
