"Lake Tahoe (For My Father)" as written by and Dan Koch....
These steps they remind me of places that I used to know,
The smell and the sand of Lake Tahoe,
The restaurants and strip malls and chimney smoke,
And these bricks remind me of places I used to go,
With log cabins lining a dirt road,
When my obligations were in the snow,

I miss home and I miss you,
When there's no one around and nothing to do,

And I still remember those weekends when I was nine,
And four hours seemed like a lifetime,
But look out the window son, you'll be fine,
And I traced the railroad through mountains and watched the trees,
The white powder resting on their leaves,
As I pulled a blanket over my knees,

Oh, I miss home and I miss you,
When there's no one around and nothing to do,
And I know that you're keeping busy too,
But I miss home and I miss you,

    General Commenti love at the beginning how he says I miss home and I miss you when there's no one around and nothing to do. Reminds me aof a long trip that is so busy and when you finally get a chance to relax you realize you are really homesick

    General CommentAh, this reminds me of childhood summers spent at this camp that my family used to own... some of the best summers... most definitely. And, yeah, I think it's just basically about being nostalgic for times spent with loved ones... when you're so far away.
