"Homesick" as written by Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Joshua Steven Woodard, Neil S Westfall, Thomas H Denney Jr. and Alexander Thomas Shelnutt....
Everything around me seems so much different than where I'm from
And at this rate I think my fate's been sealed
This life's so unpredictable
We'll go continue to live a life that no one knows
Where's this gonna go?

Right here, right now
This is the beginning of the end
And I won't sing one single thing until we can get this right
I'm moving on
I'm moving on

Hey mom, I wrote you some soft songs
And tell dad I'm just fine
We had to choose
We made our moves
And now we got to go, go

Everything about me seemed so much different when I was young
I couldn't wait to take my place
Five years have passed
Good god have I been gone?
So why, I've never felt so alone in my whole life
Times not on my side

Right here, right now
This is the beginning of the end
And I won't sing a single thing until we can get this right
I'm moving on
I'm moving on

Hey mom, I wrote you some soft songs
And tell dad I'm just fine
We had to choose
We made our moves
And now we got to go

And why's this make me so nervous?
Why does everything go wrong?
Why's this make me so nervous?
Why does everything go wrong?

I'm holding on to a fairy tale
We're moving forward but we're not there yet
I'm holding on to a fairy tale
We're moving forward
we're moving forward

I'm holding on to a fairy tale
We're moving forward but we're not there yet
I'm holding on to a fairy tale
We're moving forward, we're moving forward

Hey mom, I wrote you some soft songs
And tell dad I'm just fine
We had to choose
We made our moves
And now we got to go

And why's this make me so nervous?
(You make me so, you make me so)
Why does everything go wrong?
Why's this make me so nervous?
(You make me so, you make me so)
Why does everything go wrong?

    General CommentSuch a good song, pretty straightforward.
    Swear to god I thought they said, "And tell Dad I just farted," when I heard it for the first time.

    Song MeaningObvious meaning, Jeremy or anyone else in the band, or the whole band feels as if they're holding on to a dream that seems unattainable. But they strive to inch their way to achieve the unachievable, whatever that may be. Being on the road makes them lonely and it also makes them miss their hometown of Ocala and their lives growing up there.

    I guess it's all about not giving up on anything you do, even if its impossible

    General CommentIsn't the line "They're gone if I'd be gone" wrong?

    I'm pretty sure the line's "Good god, have I been gone?"

    General CommentIn the first verse instead of "Where she's gonna go"

    I believe it's "Where's this gonna go?"

    Just thought I'd throw that in there.
