Going Home


I'm going home I'm going home
I just need time alone
I'm going home I'm going home
I need to be on my own
I'm going home

I miss the Michigan sun
and everything and everyone
Everybody who pushed me to be
Everything I could ever be
They all just wanted the best for me
And they all knew
All I ever wanted was to be like you
Even when i was young and loud
All I ever wanted was to make you proud
And I need to get back to the start
Because Michigan holds my heart

I'm going home I'm going home
I just need time alone
I'm going home I'm going home
I need to be on my own
I'm going home

I need to feel the Michigan breeze
That makes everything feel at ease
Because your so hard to please
AndIi just need to get away
Cause with you nothings ever okay
I cant stand being here with you
Because I just cant be who you want me to
And everyday I try
But every smile I have is a lie
I just can't do this right
So I'm leaving town tonight

I'm going home I'm going home
I just need time alone
I'm going home I'm going home
I need to be on my own
I'm going home

And I need to get back to the start
Because Michigan holds my heart
