those saturday days when you go out of your way
& you stop by an old friend's place
just to find the house quiet
the dog's in the backyard
but he doesn't care, 'cause it's his day off.
you take out your ball-point pen; leave a note saying something like:
Came by around 12:15, nobody's home. Just popped by to say hello.
You do this again and again until you've tried with all your friends
Nobody's home is as warm as yours
it's been you i see first
and why i feel welcome and not alone
let me in, let me in
i'm here and nobody's home.
