"Building A Home" as written by and Santly Kahn....
We live on a lake, and sometimes there are waves; I guess that explains why we've been led astray. Because if the west is what we need, you can bet we'll
Be heading east. We're so easily distracted by the slightest breeze. When there's too many roads, and far too many shows; all these empty highs become too
Many lows. We walk through crowded streets to be by ourselves; screaming for help... I won't wait to hear them say, "You were wrong all along." We've been
Drowning, and we've been doubting; I think it's time for a change... We're building a home, but it's not made of stone; a place where we can go to find a
Lasting hope. With our anxious pace, life's like an endless chase; where we don't know who's after us, but we run anyways... We almost left without saying
Goodbye.

    General CommentWhen I first bought this CD, I thought this song was interesting, because it seemed to be saying Jeff was tired of being a musician. "When there's too many roads, and far too many shows, all these empty highs become too many lows" etc. Last time I saw them, on October 10th, he looked so happy, I discounted that idea.
    Now that they're broken up, I guess I'll go back and say that's what I think it's about.

    General CommentI think this song reminds me of Matthew 7:24 -27

    "Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined."
