"Homecoming" as written by and Josh Ritter....
I feel a change in the weather
I feel a change in me
The days are getting shorter and the birds begin to leave
Even me, yes, yes, y'all
Who has been so long alone
I'm headed home
Headed home

The nights are getting colder now
And the air is getting crisp
I first tasted the universe on a night like this
A box of wine, and I'll abide
In the hunger in her eyes
In a place where the tree of good and evil still resides
Still resides

Homecoming
Homecoming, homecoming

She said show me what you got, babe
I'm not like other girls
Just give me your bad self
And a place for us to make a stand and I can move the world
Lift the valley from the floor, honey
It'll turn to the sky
They'll say that it's a miracle and you'll know damn well they're right
Damn well they're right

Homecoming now (don't go away now)
Homecoming, homecoming (don't go away now)
Homecoming now (don't go away now)
Homecoming, homecoming (don't go away now)

(Hey now)
When the oracle spoke to me she was like a roadside song (don't go away now)
Do unto others as you would have them do
Even if in turn they do you wrong (hey now)
This town right here is my everything
Though I've been torn away (don't go away now)

It has my heart
It has my heart
They stole my heart
My heart is there (hey now)
My heart is there
My heart is there, my heart is there (don't go away now)

Get just a little bit high
Get a little tongue tied
Gonna try to find whatever ever made time
That kind of immemorial
That time before the fall, yeah
That time before the autumn
Really turned the corner
Drive east of Eden
Till we start to feel the west
We were never far from nowhere
You could see it from the edge of town
Honey, baby, wonder how it feel now
Somehow I can't believe that it could feel like the before, but

The air's getting colder now
The nights are getting crisp
I first tasted the universe on a night like this
And I'll abide a box of wine
And the hunger in her eyes
In a place where the tree of good and evil still resides

Homecoming
Homecoming, homecoming (homecoming)
Homecoming
Homecoming, homecoming (homecoming)
Homecoming
Homecoming, homecoming (don't go away now)
Homecoming (don't go away now)
Homecoming, homecoming
Homecoming
Homecoming, homecoming
