Not Coming Home

I'm so far away
I'm not coming home
Not today

I found a better place
Somewhere I can smile
I just need my space
For a long long while

Here I am content
Here I hear no lies
Here I see the light
Here I can vent
Here I need no disguise

We don't need to speak
Here I belong
Forever in a week
You were wrong

No need to roam
You won't find me
I'm not coming home
