"Don't Come Home" is a song by the British singer & songwriter Emma Blackery. It is the fifth track from her fourth EP, Magnetised, and was released on May 25, 2017, a day before the EP's release date. It is 3:21 in length and was released under Emma's name.

BackgroundEdit

The song was written during a period when Emma and her ex-boyfriend Luke Cutforth were fighting constantly due to stress related issues. It's initially about Emma's constant travelling that would leave Luke waiting at home for her to arrive. This would cause a strain within their relationship, eventually it being one of the main reasons as to why the relationship had ended.

LyricsEdit

It's so hard to say the words for what I mean
Cos' I've spent the last few months disappearing
And it's so hard to say goodbye when you're not leaving
And you'll always wait for me to come home


And I can always count on you to take the blame
I say that things will change but things will always stay the same
I can see it in your eyes you wanna go
But you'll always wait for me to come home
And you'll always wait for me to come home


So tell me why you stay at all
You'd be better off alone
You stick around to watch it fall
Even when I'm building up these walls
If you're not there when I get back tonight
I won't protest, I will not fight
Just don't come home
I know you wanna but don't come home

I was blinded by the fire in your eyes
So I screamed and tore you down until it died
And it's so hard to get it back once it's gone
But you'll always wait for me to come home
And you'll always wait for me to come home


So tell me why you stay at all
You'd be better off alone
You stick around to watch it fall
Even when I'm building up these walls
If you're not there when I get back tonight
I won't protest, I will not fight
Just don't come home
I know you wanna but don't come home


I don't want you around for me to bring you down
I don't want you to stay for me to push you away
I know you wanna but don't come home
I know you wanna but don't come home


So tell me why you stay at all
You'd be better off alone
You stick around to watch it fall
Even when I'm building up these walls
If you're not there when I get back tonight
I won't protest, I will not fight
Just don't come home
I know you wanna but don't come home

TriviaEdit

  • The track was meant to be on her debut single, "Sucks to Be You", however the song didn't flow well with the rest of the EP. The song was re-recorded in 2017 and remade into more of an upbeat electropop ballad rather than a rock song.
