about

This was me working out if I wanted to stay or leave. It's a bittersweet song that expresses gratitude for the friends and experiences gained on my travels (even the ability to travel itself), while also acknowledging the difficultly and growth that occurs when you leave your home country.

The idea of home is something that I often think about. I've moved around a lot throughout my life, which can feel both freeing and unsettling at the same time.

lyrics

They say that home is where you make it
And I think I would agree
Where you can spill drinks on the carpet
And yell at the TV
But sometimes home is somewhere different
Than where you're wanting it to be
Sometimes its an anchor
And it's pulling back on me
To feel the ocean wind blowing
From the harbor to my face
Get a milkshake from Sweet Mother's
Or another happy place
Maybe I'm looking for the answer
Maybe I already know
Maybe I'm just running
But I still have to go
Oh, I still have to go

But I'm lucky to have friends
In so many different places
I'm lucky to have seen
All that I have seen
And I'm lucky for my heart
To be torn apart by seas
And I'm lucky to have called London home
I'm lucky to have called London home
I'm lucky to have called London home

I watch the lights along the river
When I'm walking home at night
No matter what I'm feeling
It makes it alright
I'm trying hard to deliver
What I was put here to do
But sometimes I'm a child
And I'm lost just like you
Oh, I'm lost just like you

But I'm lucky to have friends
In so many different places
I'm lucky to have seen
All that I have seen
And I'm lucky for my heart
To be torn apart by seas
And I'm lucky to have called London home
I'm lucky to have called London home
I'm lucky to have called London home

But I'm lucky to have friends
In so many different places
I'm lucky to have seen
All that I have seen
And I'm lucky for my heart
To be torn apart by seas
And I'm lucky to have called London home
I'm lucky to have called London home
I'm lucky to have called London home
