"Homesick" as written by Fletcher Dragge, Jason M. Thirsk, Byron Mcmackin and Jim Lindberg....
I walk down my old street
Used to be home for me and
Now there's spray paint on the walls

I see a house that at one time looked nice
But now it is abandoned
There's nothing left at all

So why, why must we let our chances fly
When oh when oh will we ever see hope again
Why, why, why is it hard to say goodbye
Well oh well oh at least I can still remember when
Our city used to be such a beautiful place
Now you can't walk down the street
The same and think you'll see the same
My hands are in the air
It makes no sense to me
I cannot explain this tragedy

My first trip to city
I remember thinking
That the buildings stood so tall
And when I see that my old stomping ground
Is just a ravaged
They seem so small now rather

So why, why must we let our chances fly
When oh when oh will we ever see hope again
Why, why, why is it hard to say goodbye
Well oh well oh at least I can still remember when
Our city used to be such a beautiful place
Now you can't walk down the street
The same and think you'll see the same
My hands are in the air
It makes no sense to me
I cannot explain this tragedy

Feel like I'm living in someone else's dream
It doesn't seem this is the way
That things should be
It's like a dark cloud swallowed up humanity
Whatever it is it is be-yond-me
Homesickness is the flu that surrounds me
A virus spreading through the street
It astounds me
Homesickness

Our city used to be such a beautiful place
Now you can't walk down the street
The same and think you'll see the same
My hands are in the air
It makes no sense to me
I cannot explain this tragedy

    General CommentI really like this song. I think that we've all felt homesickness at least one time in our lives.

    General Commentthe video has a great message as does the song they both have a same and yet in a sense different meaning,,,the song to me means about growing up in a city that was nice and as time and society changes and what not it becomes a battelfield for gangs and a market for drugs .... thats where guns come in i think the video is great

    General CommentIt's about how change has affected the places that were in his memoery. He sees them after a couple of years, and it has changes for the worst.

    General CommentIt's about time changing things for the worst. He returns home, but sees it crime infested and not as good as he remembers. He's not homesick for his home, he's homesick for what it used to be
