Eddie Perfect

"I Wanna Go Home" from Eddie Perfect's "Songs From The Middle" with the Brodsky Quartet and musicians of the Australian National Academy Of Music. Incredible arrangement by Iain Grandage. Performed as part of the Melbourne Cabaret Festival at the South Melbourne Town Hall, 2010.

I Wanna Go Home

The first girl I took to IKEA broke my heart
We got home and the whole thing fell apart
I held the screws to our bed as she fled
Love is so much like an IKEA shelf
You just have to put it together yourself
And next week you're shopping with somebody else
And I wanna go home
I wanna go home

Girl number two had "forever" written 'cross her face
I'd never seen someone so at home in that place
She didn’t know where to begin so she moved in
This woman I love I despise when I shop
I can’t even pronounce the name of this cup
I’m keeping the Allen Key in case we break up
And I wanna go home
I wanna go home

Girl number three was so busy adding up the cost
She let go of my hand and she got lost
By the time I found someone to help she'd met someone else
I felt lower than any lamp's pricetag was marked
I knew it was over before she had parked
We got there in the morning I left in the dark
And I wanna go home
I wanna go home
It's so damn depressing I think I could cry
IKEA's where burnt out love curls up to die
With so many dismantled lifestyles to buy
I wanna go home
I wanna go home

I just wanted more than what IKEA stocks
Something that didn't come out of a box

My new love and I needed furniture but we were afraid
Still we went to IKEA anyway
At the showroom where no love survived we arrived
How many times had I been here before?
We stood in the carpark and looked at the store
Then holding hands both backed away from the door
She said, "I wanna go home"
And I said, "I wanna go home
