Homesick - Lyrics by Michelle Lewis


Lyrics

(michelle lewis/teddy kumpel)

Daddy makes me march across the room
He thinks that i walk weirdly for a boy
He says, "take out the swagger and don't cry to mother
And don't try to run away
'cause you don't want to see me get annoyed"
And all our momma says is

Oh my little one, i think my work is done
It's time to send you out on your own
Just take it easy and i won't have to worry about you
'cause you can never come back home

High school isn't kind when you are different
I pretend i'm on the enterprise searchin' for another life
And i'm sick of the soccer team
I hate having to be so mean
But i don't know how
I'll spend another year locked up inside
And all you got to say is

Oh my little one, i think my work is done
It's time to send you out on your own
Just take it easy and i won't have to worry about you
'cause you can never come back, you can never come back
Homesick,
Homesick,
Homesick, i'm sick of being around

Some kids get allowance, some even get acceptance
Some get love
But i just get the back of his hand
My turn to say it and

So my hollow ones, i guess your work is done
You got a kid who turned out queer
And you had a special touch, i thank you very much
But i am outta here, i am outta here
Homesick,
Homesick,
Homesick,
Homesick

Homesick
I'm sick of being around
