How many times has she picked up her cell phone
And tried but then she’s overcome
Finding the perfect words isn’t so easy
In more than one way she’s all thumbs
What can she tell him that fixes the last time
That she spoke from anger and pain
She’s listening now to what she should have said
She’s trying to rephrase it again … So

Chorus
She writes: How have you been?
And then he writes: I’m tryin’ to move on
And then she writes: You’re not alone
If you’ve got to move on to somewhere
Why don’t you move home

Verse
She stares at her screen for what feels like hours
Afraid what his answer might be
Composing responses she won’t get to send
That’s if he’s chosen to stay beyond reach
And then comes the moment that she has been dreading
She almost can’t focus to read
The words that appear in her hand that is trembling
Are saying just what her heart needs

Chorus 2
He writes: How have you been?
And then she writes: I’m trying to move on
And then he writes: You’re not alone
If you’ve got to move on to somewhere
Why don’t you move home.

Bridge
I know where this story’s going
And I know there’s hope when I see it
I believe an exemption will bring our redemption,
And things will be fine

Verse
What can we say that repairs all the damage
That we spoke from anger and pain
We’re hearing now what we could have said
We’re trying to rephrase it again …Oh

Chorus
We write: Is there forgiveness
So we might finally move on
Cause the one right move has been shown
The move that can keep us together
Is moving back home
