"Last Mile Home" as written by and Jared Followill Matthew Followill....
Take it back, I never meant it
Never thought it would come to pass
Baby know it's not forgotten baby
Know that this is gonna last

By and large I had it coming
I recall the tremble in your eyes
I just want to make it better
I just want to make it right

Driven on the last mile home, driven on the last mile home
Things are always better, when were all together
I'm driving on the last mile home

Tell me that the bar is drinking,
And the lights are swinging in the smoke
I'm a fool for conversation,
And I’ve got nowhere to go

Dreamin' on the last mile home, dreamin' on the mile last home
Things are always better, when were all together
I'm dreamin' on the last mile home

Dreamin' on the last mile home, dreamin' on the last mile home
Things are always better when were all together
I'm dreamin' on the last mile home

Driven on the last mile home
Dreaming on the last mile home
Things are always better, when were all together
I'm dreamin' on the last mile home

Dreamin' on the last mile home, dreamin' on the mile last home
Things are always better, when were all together
I'm dreamin' on the last mile home

Baby I’m the one who’s broken
Maybe I'm the breaker of the hearts
Been so lone since we’ve spoken
It's been lonely baby its been hard

    General CommentI thought it was dreaming until I read the lyrics via you tube and it says "tripping the last mile home". THEN I read it's "driving"!!!!
    I'm going with "dreaming" PERIOD!!
    HEY, someone needs to get this straight being all those different words bring many different meanings. Such a soulful song to be in question is a sin!!

    General CommentObviously, it's dreaming. The other words don't even make sense in its place. Anyway, I've never been a fan of this band and doubt I will be in the future, but I like this song. It made me weep the first time I heard it. I actually thought it was some late 70's band and that I'd heard it long ago, but was quite surprised to find out I was wrong. I think the lyrics are very easy to interpret. The only thing left up to interpretation is whether or not his family/lover is at the home he's going to or if he's just dreaming about them on his last mile home alone.
