This place has millions of people, but they're still all alone,
I have to admit some days I just wish I had stayed home.
so many reasons for why I miss home so much,
is it the soul of the peoples or is it Momma's touch.
Not quite sure why I get homesick on so many nights,
But, I long for clear night's & stars not canceled by city lights
maybe because, there are no lightning bugs flying around at dusk,
or perhaps it's cuz' I miss the smell of the rain on top of corn husk,
I miss the laughter in the air from the ones I hold dear.
yet, I still feel I was meant to move out here.
I miss the kindness greeting me from a neighbors face,
and I miss true quality of my friends for, that you can't replace.
I miss the heart, the pride and the smells of my home.
sometimes in this place I feel all alone.
I miss accustic guitars and cheap ciggarettes,
and lots of fun secrets I can't reveal yet.
I miss playing in the rain, letting it roll down my cheeks,
I miss skipping rocks with Sara in those old muddy creeks.
Those days that I once took for granted, all those days before,
are the very same things that I now am longing for.
It's bitter-sweet to remember my Kentucky home,
but, out of the choices I have made, this one was my own
I made the best decision for the cards dealt, I alone pay the cost.
for every step taken foward, reveals more to me, the things I've lost.
