"Why Don't You Stay Home" as written by and Nina Nastasia....
It's high time to make a move
Things might not get better
There, I said it
The last time you were feeling like this
You left with a light coat and near froze to death

Why don't you stay home where you're loved
Where you'll never be
Hungry or lost no stranger

Not much I can think of
We cut down the oak last year
I know you can't stay very long
But why do you run and run
The children you won't recognize
They're growing so fast
I can't keep up, keep up

Why don't you stay home where you're loved
No danger here left to feel
Why don't you stay home where you're loved
Where you'll never be
Hungry or lost no stranger

    Song MeaningI think that this song is coming from the perspective of someone who has a loved one who moved away. She senses that the person might be lonely and miserable and she would just like them to move back home to be with friends and family.
    I think the endiing line is "No Strangers We." I think the person that moved away feels more and more disconnected as time goes by. They keep looking for something but they just seem to be lost.
