Homesick

Intro:
Thanks a lot.
My life is upside down.
Thanks to you and your lies.
I'm leaving this town.

V1:
You don't get it, do you?
This town's one big heartbreak.
I left at the first chance I got.
A chance I needed to take.

Pre:
It looks like things are changing.
But this town will stay the same.

Chorus:
Dear mom and dad,
I know it's been so long.
Here's a letter I wrote,
And a heartfelt song.
If you want me,
I'll be under the moon.
I know you're scared to death.
But I'm coming home soon.

Don't be scared to death.
I'm coming back home...
When hell freezes over.
But you don't know that.

V2:
I don't know about you,
But I hate reliving my past.
I needed room to breathe.
I knew I couldn't last..
In a town like this.
I've never seen so many liars.
I've never burnt so many bridges,
Or started so many fires.

Pre:
This town has one thing I need,
A road that I can use to leave.

[chorus]

V3:
Before you call me out,
Let me say what's on my mind.
This town has good things,
Good things you have to find.
I've gotta live with mistakes,
All I made in this town.
I was afraid to leave the ground.
There's no place to go but down.

Pre:
You can't keep me down.
I don't change my mind so easily.

[chorus]

V4:
I'd always fall asleep with the lights on.
So I could pretend that you're still home.
You being gone is the reason for my exit.
Thanks to you, i've never felt so alone.

Pre:
How do you feel knowing it's all your fault?
I bet I'm making you nervous.

[chorus]

V5:
I'm not homesick.
I'm just sick of going home.
You're better off without me.
And I'm better off alone.

[chorus]

Outro:
Try not to miss me when I'm gone.
Until next time, so long.
But who am i kidding?
There won't be a next time.
You won't miss me.
You'll never miss me.
