You wanna just come home through the courtyard
Your son run to greet you with the perfect report card
He just wants a stable family and a nice home, in the end, than be cursed with lines and lines of things to say.
Notice how he shifts perspective to “you,” perhaps to pretend as if this isn’t really his deepest desire? (Although the rest of the song would lead us to believe it is)
