Anthony Ramos - Come Back Home Lyrics




I had to leave to see
How good I had it, I had it
I had to go to know
How good I had it
Would you have me if I come back home?

My mama said when I was six years old
I would always sit up by the window
I would always say this city way too cold
Wish there was another place I could go
She would ask where and I would say

Where, anywhere, tell me where 'cause I'm scared
If I'm here then I'll never see paradise
I just wanna see paradise

So I had to leave to see
How good I had it, I had it
I had to go to know
How good I had it
Would you have me if I come back home?

Yeah, I was datin' D for three years
Then I broke a promise 'cause I had to go to college
Thinkin' 'bout my tomorrows
Then I met a Brina
But of course I had to leave her 'cause the grass is always greener
'Cause theoretically she gave me everything I need
But for whatever reason I ain't never feel like me
I looked her in the eyes and said, "My heart isn't in me"
She looked me in the eyes and said, "Where is it?"
And I said

Where, anywhere, tell me where 'cause I'm scared
If I'm here then I'll never see paradise
I just wanna see paradise

So I had to leave to see
How good I had it, I had it
I had to go to know
How good I had it
Would you have me if I come back home?

Nothing better than my mama rice and beans
All the sound, the people yellin' on the street
The lights when I land at JFK
The cold wind when it hits me in my face
I only feel the ground under my feet when
Jazzy standin' right there next to me and
Those the things that make me feel at home
And that's the only paradise I know, so

I had to leave to see
How good I have it, I have it
I had to go to know
How good I have it (How good I have it)
I have it (So I'm comin' home)

Nothing better than my mama rice and beans
(Ooh, ooh, I'm comin' home)
All the sound, the people yellin' on the street
The lights when I land at JFK
(Oh, I'm comin' home)
The cold wind when it hits me in my face
I only feel the ground under my feet when
Jazzy standin' right there next to me and
(Yeah, I'm gon' come back home)
Those the things that make me feel at home
And that's the only paradise I know, so
(I'm comin' home)

[?] God bless you, where are you?
You still at work?
Anyway, call me when you get this message
God bless, we love you

  21. MikSofa :3

    As someone who spent their formative years in an ny suburb just outside the city, this song just really *hits deep* with me. The deciduous trees in fall, falling asleep knowing you have a snow day tomorrow as you hear the plows scrape the pavement outside for snow, apartment living...these things of course aren’t specific to ny but they just . And hearing this song makes me miss it all the more 💖 I just remember dying to leave but now I’m dying to go back

  22. MikSofa :3

    🌸Ok here’s for the ones who have bad hearing (including myself)🌸...

    I had to leave to see

    If I'm here then I'll never see paradise
    I just wanna see paradise

    So I had to leave to see

    I had to go to know
