HOME Lyrics
by Summer

Check my pulse
Am I still alive?
Get your motorcycle, baby
Let’s go for a ride
Down country roads that wind
Lined with beautiful trees
wind on our arms and our legs
I feel so free
This place is so easy
Everyone fell asleep

Your poetry brings me to my knees
The reason I’m leavin'
Is what you love about me
‘cause after nine o’clock
there’s just one place to eat
I’m not hungry anyway,
I’m just choking on my need
For adventure, fun, spontaneity
I just can’t stay here
I’m sorry

Your place
Is in my heart
No, you don’t rent
You bought
And I’m not going anywhere
Anytime soon
I might live on the road
But my home
Is with you

Lacks imagination
That’s what I’d mark on your card
Not so much for your person
But for where you are
Yes, I’ll help you discover
Shel Silverstein
I can’t believe you never read him—
But your dad was mean
What I want more than anything
Is to help you be… better


We laughed when Jake said
He moved into her
I think I know what he meant
he just used the wrong words
He meant he’s never really alone anymore
He doesn’t think of where he lives
like he did before
And my heart never needed a home
It needed a door

Your place
Is in my heart
No, you don’t rent
You bought
And I’m not going anywhere
Anytime soon
I might live on the road
But my home
Is with you
