"Georgia" as written by John Michael Hill and Austin Roberts....
There's something about the Georgia summer afternoons
When the sun goes down and the air gets cool
And it's home to me, oh, it's home to me

And I've been missing that place too much it seems
Gave up any home just to find my dreams
And it's weighing on me, oh, it's weighing on me
Hey now, it's weighing on me

But I'm only just one second short of calling this my end
If I gave you something different, would you call it the same?
But I'm only just one person, who am I to disagree?
If I gave you simple reasons, would you still be questioning me?

I climbed a mountain simply looking for advice
But all I found were children playing innocent and nice
And everyone was peaceful and everyone polite
No one to whisper dreams, what's thought to be a part of life

But I'm only just one second short of calling this my end
If I gave you something different, would you call it the same?
But I'm only just one person, who am I to disagree?
If I gave you simple reasons, would you still be questioning me?

I found a poor man once, he was the age of fifty-three
He spoke about the government and the thought of being free
What good does us reason if we fail to see?
What good does us freedom if we fail to be free?

    General CommentI think it's
    "I'm only just one second short of calling this my AIM"
    rhymes with the second sentence better anyway. Really like this song.

    General Commenti actually live in Georgia, and i whenever i just feel like i need to get away, i want out of the state. but when i think about it, i love this place. and it's the same feeling he has here.

    it just seems like he's confused about his life and everything, and he feels a little bit more together when he's home, even if he's really not any better.

    i can completely relate to this song and it's so great. Cartel's new album's very good. and they're nice guys too, i've met them!

    General CommentUm the lyrics are wrong.
    It's

    "I'm only just one second short of calling this my aim
    If I gave you something diffrent would you call it the same?
    But I'm only just one person
    Who am I to disagree?
    If I gave you simple reasons
    Would you still be questioning me?"
    And "No one to whisper dreams one thought to be apart of life"

    General Commenti lived in georgia for a while...
    left my home in ohio to go there. i loved it there but i missed my family and friends too much and i came back.
    i sometimes regret coming back here.
    georgia, even without the ones i love, felt like home.

    General CommentThis really is a good song, but I live in Georgia....and I don't see how he could ever think of this place as home.

    General CommentI don't think this song has anything to do with Georgie specifically, just the place that you think of as home. Maybe you grew up some place, but once you could go to college or whatever, you moved far away, and didn't come back until a long time later, when you had such a heavy burden to go back to you beginnings (the verses). When you're there, you wonder how your life would be different if you never left (the chorus), but then you're reminded that it doesn't really matter, as long as you keep on using your right to live (last stanza).
