Candlebox - Come Home Lyrics

I watch you fade away
your strength in long echos
its hard to see you through these days
I just want you to know
All memories get lost
we sit and wade through thru fears
I can't remember to forget you
I watch you disappear

Oh my eyes are so sad
And I will always try to remember what you said
and I have always wanted you to be proud of
all the things I said and all I've done
And oh, my heart's so barren
come home to me now

I dreamed of you last night
we're sitting in the sand
an ocean's rushing in
we sat there holding hands
the water wrapped itself around
warmly rising over head
the graceful sunset swimming
swirling through our heads

Oh, my eyes are so sad
I will always try to remember what you said
and I have always wanted you to be proud of
all the things I've said and all I've done
and oh, my heart's so barren
come home to me now

I sat along your bedside light
for hours after you had gone
my head a mess of happiness
all colored in crayon
it's hard to say goodbye
so hard, so hard I'm sure you know
you were grace when I was stumbling
you were the strength when I let go

And every song I sung with you
the darkest to the brightest tunes
will keep you in my heart heart of hearts
as pains they come but soon depart
and oh, my eyes are so sad
oh, my eyes are so said
come home to me now

I watch you fade away
your strength in long echos

  13. Michael Jenkins

    The music IS in your heart. Dont be afraid to sing it.

  14. Rb utube

    I've lived this before sadly probably will again even if ok again without being a person that wants to work! The average American is only 2 paychecks behind living same life

  15. Brian Ellis

    I need you Jesus 🙏 help me with my legal problems etc 🙏. I love you and praise the Lord Jesus Christ 🙏

  16. Laure Murkuns

    Great song to end the album with.

  17. Christopher Lipp

    I've lived a normal roll coaster ride life
    Which has made it difficult to hold onto most shit that humans care about holding on to
    But to get to the point
    In twelve years I've held on to my written words
    A bad ass trippy triangle rock some of my sanity and my beloved
    warhorse Indian blanket my grams got me
    It's my blanket that I call home

  18. Thomas Tacey

    Candlebox is now and always has been in my top three favorite bands ever!

  19. Rusell Shaw

    Candlebox put out one good album and that was it it was a hell of album but they just didn't never do nothing else successful

    Kenney Williams

    Happy pills is a really good album from them 1998 check it out if you havent

  20. Greg Alvarez

    This song is about a homeless man that they met on tour

  21. Jessica Glaspie

    Love this song touches me on so many levels "cause I wanna come home"

  22. Jennifer Thompson

    Song definitely hits home for me and my ex boyfriend....I still worry about him so much the life he lives is just about like this song😭

  23. Steve Weaver

    I think the reason they never got popular like their Seattle contemporaries was because of their record label and who it was owned by. Maverick was owned by Madonna.

    Michael Ventura

    I think it was more because Nirvana and Pearl Jam were hogging all the limelight.

  30. ty mead

    bad ass song

  31. Juan Francisco

    I see him everyday
    In that blanket that he calls home
    I wonder does he know
    That his family they're left alone
    He says brother can you spare
    Can you spare a dime
    See i'm down to my last dollar
    And this life of mine
    Said this life of mine
    It gets rough at times
    And i wonder does he know
    Does he even care
    That his family's safe at home and they wonder where
    As he wanders through his life ever searchin' for
    A warm blanket on warm fields and he wanders on
    And i wonder is he safe from the cold
    Well i see he left the other day
    Took his blanket that he called home
    I wonder did he go for good
    Or did he pass away
    Well i wonder does he know
    Now i'm down to my last dollar
    And this life of mine
    It gets rough at times
    It gets rough at times
    And i wonder does he know
    Does he even care
    That times
    It gets rough at times
    And i wonder does he know
    Does he even care
    That my family's safe at home
    And i wonder where
    As i wander through my life
    Ever searchin' for
    My warm blanket on fields as i wander on
    And i wonder
    Will i always be helped along i said i
    I'll never know
    Because i
    I'll never go and yes, i
    I wonder why
    Because i
    I'll never go home
    I'll never come home
    Oh won't you let me come home

    Robert Pickett

    Juan Francisco 😢👤💔

    Lynda Keith

    I will always be held alone

  32. Peg Bowen

    candlebox is by far one of my all time favorites there will never be another band to even come close to rythem and sounds that this band makes its gets you in just the right spots i can turn it up close my eyes and feel the music ,its so southing ,it makes me have a sence of piece a easy feeling i cant really explain ......i love it

    david hodges

    Well put

    Brian Wilson

    That's how I ride this album every time I listen to it! But... I've got to sing it at the top of my lungs!

  33. Seb Jao

    If this band and this album came out in 1969, believe me they would've been as big as Led Zeppelin.


    I doesn't matter where the world my place them, all that matters is where you place them.

    C Williams

    Led Zeppelin wasn't that great to me. Jimmy Page has robbed a bunch of old blues players that most white people had never heard of at that time and the average guy dug Zeppelin because it was something different but it wasn't original. " Squeeze my lemon til the juice runs down my leg " is Robert Johnson isn't it? I've never gotten tired of this album and I only own 1 Led Zeppelin album these days along with Jimmy and Robert's solo stuff and both Firm albums. I will admit that Zeppelin's first album is a kickass good time and I don't care if I ever hear Stairway to Heaven again. In music its all been done but if I could only own 5 albums I would have this album...but no Zeppelin.

  34. Josh Maschmidt

    big 90's concert here in st.Louis in July. Stir, Candlebox, 311, Fuel, Local H, Eve 6, Alien Ant Farm and a couple tribute bands.

    Chester Rockwell

    Josh Maschmidt local h!

  35. Tammy Hauck

    So freaking good, These guys are in my favs list.

  36. Beningo Trevino

    Brother Can You Spare A Dime, Cause I'm Down To My Last Dollar...Awesome Song! Candlebox Kicks Ass

    Bryan Hall

    Stacy Edwards
    Oh man, what happened? I mean, what’s the story if you don’t mind me asking. I hope things are good for you.
    I’m an 80’s person but 90’s has good stuff like this. Another great tune comes to mind, it’s from the 80’s, is House of Pain by the band FasterPussycat. Sad.

    Lynda Keith

    @VH 5150 yup

  39. J.r. Major

    best shit ever

  40. Chris Shocka

    Always one of my personal favorites


    Chris Shocka mine too

  41. Lake1771

    these guys are like the 'nickleback' of the early 90's.        that said.    nickleback is cool too.

    Hells Bells

    This band is 100x better than nickleback.........this band obviously has more talent even though they arent as commercially popular


    No, they're not.


    No, they're not.


    Damn troll!

  42. timothy shufelt

    Simply amazing

  43. TheShive

    Always loved this tune!

  44. Stinker Catt

    Candlebox is the epitome of UNDERRATED 90's alternative bands.  I listen to this tape until it wore out in my walkman.  I wish I had a time machine.....I would relive 1993-97!

    Steve Link

    Stinker Catt very underrated , great band

    Mary Upton

    I bought this disc when it first came out and would play it in my car all the time. friends, family, everyone had no idea who I was listening to. They all loved it. The entire album is awesome!


    Love this, me too

    Laure Murkuns

    I love this album too. But in my opinion, it was their only good album. I had high hopes for them too.

    Mac Hugo

    I prefer 1986-1997 it was punk, then grunge, Britpop, then alternative rock

  45. steel finley

    This song is awesome i love the meaning of it. My grandpa lost his brother and this is one of his favorite song he cried the first time he showed it to me.

    David Barker

    Nobody and i mean fucking nobody cares

    Lynda Keith

    @David Barker sad and unfortunately true..sorry for your loss god bless

    Tammie Downard
    Happy Pills album I thought was great!!! Blinders, It’s Alright are just a few great songs from that album. Underrated album by them I think

    Lynda Keith

    Sad homelessness very hard too

  57. Kevin Neely

    absolutely love that song

  58. nirant subba

    one of the best song..!!

  59. Hawgknot

    If my brother would get his head out of the rap shit he's into and give this a listen, a full on meaningful listen...I'm sure he could completely relate to this. It's so wonderful to have my brother back and off that shit he was doing. It almost took his life...his car and his life is the only thing that shit didn't take from him. The pills cant have my brother, we fought to keep him, he's ours, and he's too young to go out like that, thank god and rehab for my brother's recovery, I love ya bro!

    Caleb George

    Hawgknot i listened to rap and shit like that and i got introduced to this song and it changed my life alot


    I went through the same thing saving my little brother's ass from himself. Glad to hear you beat the pills bro.

    Tyler Jones
