From the recording Of Love and Loss
Michael: "Maybe something of the bittersweet tone of this tune owes to the fact that, lyric-less, I wrote the chorus guitar part in London on my last visit there with Summer. Before the record was released, we had a few people over to hear the final mixes in sequence. Again we try not to blow the anon of our celebrated pals but just had to say that our buddy, Neal Huff was invaluable, quietly listening through playback. We sweated over the sequence as much as the the mixes and he gave us the most emphatic response confirming these last three tracks - Anyday, Comin' Home and Lost Life - as the truth, as deliverance from the depths of grief to the stubborn faith in love and deliverance. He liked this track for its straddling the two - the longing and the love. What, I think, put him over was the next track - again affirming the sequence - because he just looked up and said: "Oh, my god, it's triumphant (Lost Life) -it's a march!" Thanks, pal."
Build their walls around Just to keep you down But they don't see you They don't know What they say - don't do it Nothing more than a lie And they choose it They don't see you They don't know Tell somethin' Tell me all Can't wait I'm comin' home You're everything I think of Everything I love Lived a lonely life And swore I was maybe alive before But whatever that was I don't know Built my life around you Couldn't ever really live without you Just you and me I know that you know Tell me somethin' Tell me all Can't wait I'm comin' home You're everything I think of Everything I love Comin' home Tell me somethin', tell me all Comin' home, Summer I can't wait I'm comin' home You're everything I think of Everything I love...
