She had her heart set on Mexico
One day she packed her bags and said she'd go
Before she left she said all her goodbyes
Her father wasn’t there, her mother cried

She wrote a letter home
Mother, how are you?
Forward speaking, in tongues
She had places she should go
Maybe somewhere, Mexico

One day she got a letter in the mail
It was her mother saying all is well
She said her father needed her to pray
She said momma I’ll be home someday

And she’s callin’ home
And her father spoke
It’s been such a long time
He didn’t realize
she was ever alone

And she’s callin’ home
And her mother spoke
It’s been such a long time
Together they cried
She’s on her way home
And now she’s home

    General CommentWell I think the lyrics are self-explanatory, robotlikestofu. A girl wanted to get away from home for a while and headed to Mexico. They write letters back and forth to keep in touch, and finally she decides to come back home.

    General CommentI always thought it was about a girl who left home because of her relationship with her father. She still stayed connected, and then came back because she missed them..?
    “She learns about herself and comes back to make up with her father" - their myspace.
    Lovely song, by the way.

    General Commenti agree with machinegunnikki about her relationship with her father.
    and how it was so bad that her father never really noticed her and didnt really care that she was gone until the day she called home and then he finally realized how much he really missed her this part of the song is what makes me think that ."And she’s callin’ home And her father spoke It’s been such a long time He didn’t realize she was ever alone"
    but i don't know that is just what i got out of it.
