"Make Yourself At Home" as written by and Watts/gryskiewicz/golla/vasoli....
"Make it a note to take your pills," she said.
"I'll leave them on the table in the same brown bottle, you know,"
She said, "It's good to have you home."
The second the I smelt the scent of my own house I said it.
"Send just one postcard home.
And call as often as you can to tell us how it goes.
Let us know."

"Make it a note to make a point," he said
That's good advice I'll take it,
Now, I'll start to use it to know.
Sentence long messages,
From me to you to let you know I'm ok,
I'll let you know.

I'm out making you proud.
So, don't wait up, I'll be home soon.
I'm out of town for now.
You're what makes it home that I'll come back to.

"Make it a note to take your time," they begged.
"Take baby steps to everywhere, and come home in one piece to us."
You know, it's so good to be home,
And know that when I hit the road,
I'm thinking of you both, I miss you.

"Send just one postcard home,
And call as often as you can to let us know how it goes,
Let us know."

I'm out making you proud.
So, don't wait up, I'll be home soon.
I'm out of town for now.
You're what makes it home that I'll come back to.

Thank you for everything.

I'm out making you proud.
So, don't wait up, I'll be home soon.
I'm out of town for now.
You're what makes it home that I'll come back to.

    General Commentokay, anyone who has gone away from home for a while, like college or something, can relate to this song. kenny wrote this song directing it toward being in a band and always being on the road. and he is reciting phrases that he remembers his parents telling him while he lived at home. he's saying he won't forget the little things he learned from living at home and he's always thinking about his parents and thanking them for everything.
    I love this song! it is definitely one of my favorite songs EVER! becuz i am also in the process of leaving for college, so i listen to it all the time...

    TSL ROCKS!!!

    General CommentThis is definitely about Kenny and the band leaving/coming home from their tour. He's writing about what he remembers about his mother and father and the things they said to him, how they always want to take care of them, even when he's not there.

    That's a great line: "You're what makes it home that I come back to." Everyone has someone that they can't wait to come hom to.
