Friends, the fun, the cigarettes, and the sun came out today
And their waiting for the turn of your back
Lies, deceit, the dirty looks, and the things they like to say
It's the curve that made your confidence crash

Chorus:
This is your life, it's all been ordinary
Until you find all you're worth
Then you find your life is all but something ordinary
And you're longing for home
Your gonna find yourself at home

Bags that hang below your eyes
And the full length mirror never lies
And it all comes so disgustingly clear
But you stand up straight now start to try
And it cleans up right in a suit and tie
But your money is no good around here

(Chorus)

At home, yeah
Find yourself at home
At home

Life and death, the money that's left
And the vultures dive to intercept
And the friendship rolls onto its side
And you wait for it to die

(Chorus)

    General CommentWhen life starts to crash, and you meet the meaning of true pain, you get to know, the nature of the flow. HA!

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a person or group of people becoming famous, and how everything changes. You spend your whole life wanting to be famous, but when you get there, you realize how much you miss your old, simple life. Everyone's changed from caring about you to only caring about your money and fame, and this song is about the realization of how the life of a celebrity can be.

    General CommentI fell in LOVE with this playing NFS: HP2. It was just such a great song. ANY way.

    The song's meaning's been put up already, but me with my overkill, here goes--

    The song's about fame, and what it does to you.

    Lines:
    Lies, deceit, the dirty looks, and the things they like to say(About all the people who flame and spread rumors about someone who just hit the big leagues)

    Bags that hang below your eyes
    And the full length mirror never lies
    And it all comes so disgustingly clear(About how you can end up looking at yourself and about realizing that Hollywood's people aren't as "beautiful" as they seem. A nice suit would clean that up, now wouldn't it?)

    And the friendship rolls onto its side
    And you wait for it to die(Saying that a lot of times, you can lose your friends that you kept for so long when you're in the spotlight)

    This is your life, it's all been ordinary
    Until you find all you're worth
    Then you find your life is all but something ordinary(About how normal life is until you get discovered, and how insane it can be after.)

    It's like "Fame isn't always what it's cracked up to be. You still worry, you still have those high-school style haters who spread shit about you. But it's all on camera now, and who needs that? You just try to look good, and stay human. Sometimes you just wanna go home and go back to that."

    There's my two cents. Great song, love it.

    General Commentthis song is probably about fame, according to everyone before me
    but the part in the chorus,

    This is your life, it's all been ordinary
    Until you find all you're worth
    **evokes the sense that one day your life is going to flash before your eyes, so you may as well make it worth watching**
    Then you find your life is all but something ordinary
    **you may think life is boring, but you make your own choices, and you can make the choice to make it interesting**
    And you're longing for home
    Your gonna find yourself at home
    ** nostalgic-ness of people that leave home, or how eventually later in life, you'll feel the need to return to your hometown **
