"Homesick" as written by and Pat/hotchkiss Monahan....
So your tired of wakin' up on empty
You left for something that ain't real
So you think a couple of familiar faces
Is gonna turn it all around
You wanna be where they still pump your gas for you
Where they remember your name
They think that you are some beauty queen
Or somethin' better
Where they remember your name
Ain't it good to think about the weather
Doesn't seem to be time for that no more
It's hard to hear when you're busy sayin' what you want said
Well what you want said, it ain't clear
You wanna be where they still open doors for you
It's not hard for them to remember you at all
They light your cigarette and tell their friends
You used to love them
Where they remember your name
More forgiveness
More time away from feelin' like you do today
More forgiveness
More time away from feelin' this way
It's easy when you laugh, reminds you of you
It's easy when it's easy, it still ain't easy at all
So you're tired of wakin' up on empty
You left for something that ain't right, ain't right
You wanna be where they still pump your gas for you
Where they remember your name
They think that you are some beauty queen
Or somethin' better
Where they remember your name
More forgiveness
More time away from feelin' like you do today
More forgiveness
More time away from feelin' this way

    General CommentI luvvvvv this song! I think it's about someone who left their hometown to chase their dreams. She's used to being something in her town, but when she makes it out into the bigger world, her 'ego' can't handle it. She's not a big deal anymore, and she misses and appreciates the love and attention she got in her hometown. I suck at trying to explain it, but it works out in my head when i hear the song:P
