Verse 1

My chest gets tight

It's getting harder to breathe

And I wish you could just see

I can't do this anymore

I tried and tried and I'm just tired of trying to be OK

Anymore

Chorus

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I need to be where the weather changes

The storms are crazy and so are the people

We can dance and laugh and sing all night

And smile and drink til the morning light

Verse 2

But I'm stuck here

And you're starting school again

One more year and I'm still here

I should be right there next to you

Getting yelled at by all the teachers who

Know us

Know that we will never change

And love us anyway

But I'm still here and you're all there

I told myself it was alright

I told myself it would be OK

But my chest gets tight

It's getting harder to breathe

As I realize you're not here with me

And I'm not there

I can't do this anymore

Chorus

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I need to be where the weather changes

The storms are crazy and so are the people

We can dance and laugh and sing all night

And smile and drink til the morning light

Verse 3

So I'm starting school again

And all these people think they're my friends

But I know

None of them relate to me quite as well as you

But they're good enough for now

I guess they provide entertainment

Between the times

I'm back home and everything's alright

We can hang around down on Magazine

Or we can chill and watch some movies

But those times are few and far between

And when I'm here and you're still there

I countdown the days I swear

And one day I'll be home

And I'll know it'll be for good

Cause I can't do this anymore

Chorus

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I need to be where the weather changes

The storms are crazy and so are the people

We can dance and laugh and sing all night

And smile and drink til the morning light

I need to be where the weather changes

The storms are crazy and so are the people

We can dance and laugh and sing all night

And smile and drink til the morning light

We can dance and laugh and sing all night

And smile and drink til the morning light

And when I'm home for good

I'll know everything's alright

But right now

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home

I just wanna be home
