"I Wanna Stay Home" as written by and Andy Sturmer....
When you need someone
And there's no one there
There is always the nine o'clock train
To take you out somewhere

I take the train in town
Like I did for years
There is only seven more blocks
I could walk from here

I wanna stay home
I wanna stay home right here
I wanna stay home today
I wanna stay

It's only six o'clock
When my day begins
There is always my alarm clock
To wake me up again

When I realize the weight
That's firmly on my shoulders
I just try and find the place
I can take a walk on my blind side

When these memories fade
In my ripe old age
Please remember my dear

I wanna stay home
I wanna stay home right here
I wanna stay home today
I wanna stay

I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay

    My InterpretationFrom the lyrics the song could be about an ordinary person who lives in a small boring town. He insists that home is all he cares about as the town offers nothing else.

    That, or it's Monday again :P

    General CommentI think this is someone isolating himself after a relationship has ended. "if you need someone and there's no one there"...and then suggests not calling on him, but going out somewhere. There is no connection between the narrator and that person referred to in the first verse.

    Weight on his shoulders, fading memories as he gets older. He's pining for a lost love and regretting the end of a relationship. That's how I read it, anyway.
