Were you laughed at by your friends
And were you lost for words when everybody finally told you what they thought
You can't keep up with the trend
It makes you lose but somehow everybody always makes up in the end
Oh, was it something that I ate
Oh, didn't even touch my plate
Oh, suddenly I'm feeling great
Do you like me now

Leaving home, life was never good to me
Leaving home, I smell the morning air
Leaving home, life was never good
You can work it out we're leaving home

I could hear them through the door
As people came in laughing at the way they acted when they were alone
And an argument can start with nothing more than this
To be the light and leave you standing on your own
Oh, am I doing it again
Oh, I'm a loser now and then
Oh, and I smile at everything
Do you like me now


Hope I like the life I find when I leave everything behind
I hope I'm sure I've made my mind to go and leave home

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite jeb songs, i love it, love it love it love it! the lyrics are pretty straight forward so no need to describe what they the songs about. Jeb should be better recognised for their music but anyway, as long as the people who acknowledge how good their music is..then thats all that counts! jeb rock!

    My InterpretationI take this is a song of liberation ... that is "leaving home" and going to stand on your own two feet, sure there will be downs but there will be ups. In the end at some point in your life you need to leave the safety of your home and find yourself.

    I wonder if Jebediah at the time of this song knew about the number of adults who would stay in at "home" (esp. nowadays).
