Homesick - written for my wife three years before we were married. This song's won the West Coast Songwriter's Association's (Statewide) Songwriting Competition and more recently the New Times Music Awards and I think a big part of its appeal is that it's one of my most honest songs. Written straight from the heart about how I was feeling and dealing with what was at the time a new relationship that I hoped against hope would stand the test of time.

lyrics

plain white t-shirts on the floor
it’s hard to tell which is mine and which is yours
i don’t know what you want me to say
i can only take this day by day
day by day

i can kiss you where it hurts
will that help or only make it worse?
your voice crackles on the telephone
when i hear it it feels like comin’ home
comin’ home

home is when i’m by your side
home is drownin’ in your eyes
home is in each tender kiss
when you’re away, i’m the one…
who’s homesick…

withered petals on the dash
i wonder how i fell so far fast
in memory i’ll keep this rose
and wait for the day when you’ll be comin’ home

comin’ home
home is when i’m by your side
home is drownin’ in your eyes
home is in each tender kiss
when you’re away, i’m the one…
who’s homesick…

home is when i’m by your side
home is drownin’ in your eyes
home is in each tender kiss
when you’re away, i’m the one…
i’m the one…
who’s homesick…
