Julien Baker - Go Home Lyrics




I went walking again
I'll go out and forget to tell any of my friends where I'm going
I'm just drunk on the side of the road in a ditch when you find me –
I wanna go home, but I'm sick
There's more whiskey than blood in my veins
More tar than air in my lungs
The strung out call I make
Burned down on the edge of the highway
"I'm sorry for asking, but please, come take me home"

I quit talking again
But I know you're still listening to see if I sleep or I pierce my skin
Needles to the worn out rags
The folds in my arms, the sickening black
And I haven't been taking my meds
Lock all the cabinets, send me to bed
Cause I know you're still worried I'm gonna get scared
Cause I'm alone again and I don't like the things I see

And I haven't been taking my meds
So lock all the cabinets, and send me to bed
Cause I know you're still worried I'm gonna get scared again
And make my insides clean with your kitchen bleach
But I've kissed enough bathroom sinks to make up for the lovers that never loved me
And I know my body is just dirty clothes;
I'm tired of washing my hands
God, I wanna go home

    What a great talent this young lady really isn't she.

  2. Rob Arnold

    To say that this track is her most beautiful offering to date would be arguable but I’m in the mood for an argument.

  18. monster jesse

    Ughhh....god

  19. Daniel Martinez

    This is so good, but man, it's completely heart-wrenching. From the few videos I've seen, this is definitely the most emotional performance of this song I've seen and it's almost three years old.

  20. KP Everlark

    People like to think music like this is "boring," (and to be fair, I have heard artists in this genre whose music is basically just Generic Sadness™ multiplied) but I pity the people who attribute her music this way because I wish they could hear what I hear when I listen to Julien's music.

    It's rare to hear an artist whose music sews itself into the fabric of your soul. But I'm here to let you know, if you weren't aware already: you're looking at one of them. Godspeed, Julien. Never stop. I hope I'll always get to hear the sound of your sewing machine. ♡

    Aidan

    You’re an amazing human

  21. Wren Crandall

    “But I’ve kissed enough bathroom sinks to make up for the lovers that never loved me...” god damn that’s beautiful. Thank you SO much Julien. Your a blessing. :) I’m praying for you to find happiness.

  22. Jake junkhammer

    For fucks sake, this absolutely railroads me

  23. david57strat

    She’s got this amazing, raw, emotive quality about her. It just tugs at you. Truly, a gifted artist

  24. Arinze Chinedu

    Please what do you think she meant by "But I've kissed enough bathroom sinks to make up for the lovers that never loved me" ?

    When she says please come take me home all I can feel and think is please God take me let me leave let me die please just take me home.

    You get the gist.

    I went walking again
    I'll go out and forget to tell any of my friends where I'm going

  44. April Amante

    I discovered her on Spotify a few weeks ago, and I can't believe it. Her melodies are so haunting, her words so honest and simple. A true vulnerable artist.

  45. gemini musik

    Amen and god damn

  46. Aldous Huxley

    I'm alone again, and I don't like the things I see... I feel you, Julien. I really do.

  47. Mike T

  54. Samantha Dawn Jaramillo

    God damn. This song gets me every time. Utterly heartbreaking, and so beautiful.

  55. Mypetmonkey92

    In case anyone wants to cover this amazing piece of awesomeness, the chords are E, A, C#m, A, repeat. Good luck!

    Charlie Clark

    Mypetmonkey92 oh my gosh thank you

  56. nutmeg

    I must be a masochist to listen to this beautiful song on repeat and cry helplessly before 9 AM. I have never encountered anything quite like her before.

    Wren Crandall

    Agreed. I just found her and I have to say I’ve never cried for an artist before but she just has a way with words that sucks you in, makes you feel her pain, and then leaves you to cry over your torn heat strings. Love her so much...

    BTaylor3444

    Or you're just human.

    matt Harvey

    Well it has been awhile. Does this song still hit you as hard? It does me when in melancholy mood.

  57. Hot Beer Smith II

    Young Brandi Carlile

  61. Jeff Mackenzie

    this song has stayed in the back of my mind. powerful stuff for those who can relate

  62. Lexa Woods

    The face she makes at the end kills me. I wanna hug her. Incredible artist

  63. Dylan R

    There's something so incredibly powerful about a young artist whose so purely found their own unique voice and feeling in music.

  64. SwedishGringo

    Dam she's good man. I think this reminds the people their happy memories and the on going struggle or something... Good shit but but adios mates i out of here

  65. Pricope Ionut

    Oh, I love her and her music so much!!

  66. Niroda

    I went walking again

    God, I wanna go home

  72. Sam Taylor

    Yeah, like, her face at 3:34 or whatever, it's crushing. V sad. The bit that gets me is just before it fades to black where she looks like she cracks her knuckles. Looks so vulnerable and shy.

  73. vera rose

    Damn near breaks your heart, doesn't it? I absolutely love her voice.. her song is beautiful. kinda brought back some old shit I dealt w/ .. a lot of the times I felt just as her song. Absolutely precious!

  74. Robby1424 ok

    i have had such a huge crush on this girl for awhile lol her face at 3:34 crushes me hugely

    TBT

    Me too. Isn't she a lesbian?

  75. Wumpus

    piano chords.. ah pls.

  76. ebscoHOST

    She sings and play the way I feel; a way that inspires me to start learning to play the piano again and stick with it

  77. 34404 6U4U

    I'm in love, with liberty.

  78. Drew McDaniel

    Did you guys have this piano or does she actually tour with it?

    Audiotree

    oh yeah that's ours

  79. Kingsfan 91

    Goosebumps. Geez.

  80. ChaoticHippo

    At 3:28 she looks like she's physically hit by her own lyrics. A blessing and curse to be able to put your own feelings into words the way she does.

  81. Kenz P

    i really want to just give her a big hug and tell her i know how she feels :(

  82. imabandito

    Oh my god this is beautiful

  83. AlexMakingMusic

    I think you could sing Whitney Houston's "I Look to You" over this... hehe

    Great Song Julien :)

  84. Casey Taylor

    anyone know if she's Christian?

    Luke Williams

    +Casey Taylor she was raised in a southern Christian household but has since renounced any form of religion.

    Casey Taylor

    She actually gave a recent interview saying she has reconciled her faith.

    Luke Williams

    Cool cool. Updated info

    Blake Folmar

    I take this song as she is talking with god. "We quit talking again, but I know you're still listening" and "I'm tired of washing my hands God I want to go home." she's talking about reconciling in this song. To me, anyway.

    matt Harvey

    @Blake Folmar I agree.

  85. frarfarf

    Serious talent with this one

  86. mike purvis

    Wow. Pretty sure I'm going to watch this song dozens of times.

    mike purvis

    Okay, I've listened to this song like 20 times this weekend. Best song of all time.

    Dariya .K.

    you go mike
    are we still counting?

    hiqwertyhi

    @Dariya .K. I've certainly lost count...

  87. Gordon McCloskey

    Julien, you're able to explain emotions that took me over 20 years just to understand. You're amazing!

  88. KIN

    You can't fool me. I know an Angel when I hear one!
    She's an Original.

  89. michelle G

    wow! no words

  90. Dartheomus

    Damn I tear up every time she finishes the first verse. Just the way she sings, "I'm sorry for asking, please come take me home," makes me want to give her a hug and say it will be okay. She's so special.

  91. Borderland State

    It looks like she's trying not to cry at the end there. Don't worry. We're all crying.

  92. D R

    I heart her.
    Yo, Audiotree. Are there hard copies available for this session or is it all download?

    D R

    Poopy. Guess I'll have to flash drive it. Thanks for the response. :D

    Paul Goode

    Sometime with the last five months this session became available for download.

    ApexCactus

    It's on Itunes now too.
    That's super cool.

    Browncenters

    Serpents Sharon van Erton

    May your swords stay sharp! (mysss29)

    boo iTunes

  93. James Sherlock

    Her face at 3:32 breaks my heart

    John Navarro

    really shows the emotion in her music, what an incredible artist she is

    Blacklodgeb0b

    She says in interviews writing these sad songs really helps her, because she can just let all of that horrible shit she feels out when she plays them and then kind of just have a healthy release

    Wren Crandall

    I’m just in awe that she’s able to be so open with us. I could never do this...

    BTaylor3444

    She's remembering that feeling when everything goes wrong, you're sick, tired, someone you love leaves you, the world goes cold and you want to go back to the one place that makes sense, your home. The nostalgic feeling she misses flashes over her face; it aches like the innocence inside healed wounds. We all secretly long for feelings that are already gone.

  94. B MO

    I love her. My inspiration. She is so well spoken and freakin cool !
