From the albums Originals and Elfin

For those of you who haven't heard "The Selfish Giant" and have only heard us sometime in the last 8 or 9 months or so here's a chance to hear Bree's big sister, Elfin. We wrote this song a year or two ago for a movie project. The song was not used for the film but we kept it anyway. So now hear Jim and Elfin sing this song about "a family affair," "I'm Coming Home." Written by Jim, Dee, and Elfin.

Lyrics

I go to sleep (I go to sleep)
Snow everywhere (Blanketing everything)
But in my dreams (In my dreams)
You’re standing there (You are there)
And ocean breezes blow you hair

I go to work (I go to work)
But you’re not there (You are not there)
From my desk you smile at me
Love is the key
A family affair

I’m coming home
It’s been so long
My mind’s made up and
I am coming home

(solo)

I could be home by noon on Monday
If I take the midnight train
It’s not that things are all that bad here
And I really can’t complain
It’s just that I’ve got you on the brain

I think of you (I think of you)
When I’m alone (When I’m alone)
All I do is think of you
Can’t wait a minute more
I’m coming home

I’m coming home
It won’t be long
My mind’s made up and
I am coming home

I’m coming home
It’s been so long
My bags are packed and
I am coming home
It won’t be long
My mind’s made up
I’m coming home
