Honey, We're Home

Description
Wrote this song about a year ago after attending a songwriter "wrokshop" (more of a roundtable discussion, actually) where someone had mentioned a challenge from ANOTHER workshop to write about "home." So, I challenged myself and came up with this one. I'm pleased with the number of rhymes I worked in there and still keep it singable. Hope you enjoy!

Lyrics
David McCord - Honey, We’re Home

Where does the time go when we’re gone away?
It zips by so quickly when we’re out to play.
If only we had a bit more time to stay.
But the vacation must end…

The world is our playground, we’re just havin’ fun,
Sharing the night life or soakin’ up sun,
But suddenly one day, the fantasy’s done
Yes, the vacation must end,
And we go back home again.

(Back to the) thrills of the old day-to-day
Headaches and pills, all this stuff in the way,
Appointments and bills, we just worry and pray worry and pray
Clean up the spills, and answer the phone,
The backyards and grills, the weeds that we’ve grown
The everyday ills won’t leave us alone… and, honey, we’re home.

Where does the time go when we’re out on the town,
Watching the tropical sun goin’ down,
All quiet and peaceful with no one around
Oh well, the vacation must end,
And we go back home again.

BRIDGE:
Yes, home is the place
where our lives run the race
At an unflagging pace - gotta keep it on track.
Planning all year
just to get out of here
And just disappear - but you know, we always come back.

(Back to the) thrills of the old day-to-day
Headaches and pills, all this stuff in the way,
Appointments and bills, we just worry and pray worry and pray
Clean up the spills, and answer the phone,
The backyards and grills, the weeds that we’ve grown
The everyday ills won’t leave us alone… and, honey, we’re home.

And after it all, when we finally slow down
And we’re sittin’ at home with our world all around
Here is the place where the mem’ries are found
When every vacation must end,
We always go back home again.

Really sweet, David. You captured the everyday life very well in this. Vacations zip by in a minute, but home is where the heart is. :-)

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
