Song of the Day

A friend had me listen to this song about a month ago. I now find myself listening to it on repeat often. I think it’s the sweet carefree melody, gentle whistle, and honest southern voice. It seems not from this era. Especially as everything on the radio these days is filled with electronic sounds and auto-tune adjustments. When stressed or overhwhelmed it reminds me to relax and that everything’s going to be okay.

“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros*

Alabama Arkansas I do Love my Ma and Pa
Not the way that I do Love you

Holy Moly Me oh My your the apple of my eye
Girl I’ve never loved one like you

Man o Man your my best friend I scream it to the nothingness
there ain’t nothing that I need

Hot and Heavy pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy Jesus Christ
Ain’t nothing please me more than you

[Chorus:]
Home, Let me come Home
Home is Whenever I’m with you
Home, yes I am Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

Lalalala Take me Home
Mama I’m Coming Home

I follow you into the park, through the jungle through the dark
Girl I’ve never loved one like you

Moats and boats and Waterfalls, Alleyways and payphone calls
I been everywhere with you (that’s true)

Laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night
never could be sweeter than with you

And in the streets you run afree,
Like it’s only you and me,
Geeze, you’re something to see.

[Chorus]

Lalalala take me home
Mama I’m Coming Home

‒ Jade?
‒ Alexander?
‒ Do you remember that day you fell outta my window?
‒ I sure do ‒ you came jumping right out after me.
‒ Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke you ass, you were bleeding all over the place, I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?
‒ Yes, I do.
‒ Well there’s something I never told you about that night
‒ What didn’t you tell me?
‒ Well, while you were sitting in the back seat smoking a cigarette you thought was gonna be your last, I was falling deep, deep in love with you, and I never told you till just now!

[Chorus]

Home, let me come home, home is wherever I’m with you
Home, yes I am Home home is whenever I’m with you!

Alabama Arkansas I do love my Ma and Pa
Yes Home, yes ward! home is whenever I’m with you!
Home is whenever I’m with you.
