"Jet Lag" as written by and Pierre/comeau Bouvier....
What time is it where you are?
I miss you more than anything
Back at home you feel so far
Waitin' for the phone to ring
It's gettin' lonely livin' upside down
I don't even wanna be in this town
Tryin' to figure out the time zones makin' me crazy

You say good morning
When it's midnight
Going out of my head
Alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
It's drivin' me mad
I miss you so bad
And my heart heart heart is so jet lagged

What time is it where you are?
Five more days and I'll be home
I keep your picture in my car
I hate the thought of you alone
I been keeping busy all the time
Just to try to keep you off my hand
Tryin' to figure out the time zones makin' me crazy

You say good morning
When it's midnight
Going out of my head
Alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
It's drivin' me mad
I miss you so bad
And my heart heart heart is so jet lagged

I've been keepin' busy all time
Just to try to keep you off my mind
Tryin' to figure out the time zones makin' me crazy
I miss you so bad
I wanna share your horizon
And see the same sun rising
Turn the hour hand back to when you were holding me

You say good morning
When it's midnight
Going out of my head
Alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
It's drivin' me mad
I miss you so bad
And my heart heart heart is so jet lagged

    My InterpretationThis song could have been written for the U.S. military and their loved ones. Or any military really who get stationed far away from their families. The pain, the loneliness, the fear, the longing. Knowing that your solider is on the other side of the world and you can do nothing to help keep them safe. You can only press on.

    I loved when my sailor was able to phone me when he was deployed out to sea. It was usually at 2 AM for me because he was in a time zone 6 hours ahead of mine. But of course, I didn't care.

    With this in mind, read the lyrics again.

    What time is it where you are?
    I miss you more than anything
    Back at home you feel so far
    Waitin' for the phone to ring
    It's gettin' lonely livin' upside down
    I don't even wanna be in this town
    Tryin' to figure out the time zones makin' me crazy

    [Chorus]
    You say good morning
    When it's midnight
    Going out of my head
    Alone in this bed
    I wake up to your sunset
    It's drivin' me mad
    I miss you so bad
    And my heart heart heart is so jet lagged

    What time is it where you are?
    Five more days and I'll be home
    I keep your picture in my car
    I hate the thought of you alone
    I been keeping busy all the time
    Just to try to keep you off my hand
    Tryin' to figure out the time zones makin' me crazy

    [Chorus]

    I've been keepin' busy all time
    Just to try to keep you off my mind
    Tryin' to figure out the time zones makin' me crazy
    I miss you so bad
    I wanna share your horizon
    And see the same sun rising
    Turn the hour hand back to when you were holding me
