the tree in the front of the yard
is starting to grow
now that we've trimmed away the leaves
now look at it go

and that's just how I feel
now that we've started to reveal
all the things I thought I lost
and the hard time I concealed
and that's just how I know
how I felt the solid glow
how I felt the bitter cold
and no, i'm not going home
sometimes you just wouldn't dare
sometimes you can't go home
sometimes you're already there
when i look at you, i'm there

the blood pooled at my legs is starting to flow
now that you came along
and made what was so broken whole
but I still feel sick at this place that I have built
maybe it's not real, man, this is how I feel
and if it just gets worst, yeah, if I never heal
well, those are just the breaks man
cause I'm not going home
and I don't fucking care
sometimes you can't go home
sometimes you're already there
and I look at you, i'm there
yeah, I'm there
when I look at you, I'm there
yeah, I'm there

oh my god
oh my god

I'm not going home
no, I am already there
I'm not going home
I'm already there
no, I'm not going home
no, I am already there

    General Commentno puedo creer q nadie haya escrito de esta cancion, me da flojera escribir ahorita en ingles, asi que escribire en español... me recuerd a una persona la cual me es imposible estar ahorita con ella, por muchisimas cosas que tenemos los dos...

    "cause I'm not going home
    and I don't fucking care
    sometimes you can't go home
    sometimes you're already there"

    descubri este grupo hace poco, pero es realmente muy bueno, lo unico q no me gusta es q son de california, pero SON MUY BUENOS

    General Commenthere's a rough translation:

    i can't believe that no one has written anything about this song. i'm too lazy to write in english right now, so i will write in spanish... this reminds me of a person who can't be with her right now, for many things that the both of them have? (not positive on that part)

    i discovered this band for a little?, but they are really very good, the only thing that i don't like is that they're from california, but they're very good.
