Do you ever hear the same song over and over? I'm not talking when the radio keeps replaying the latest Rob Thomas or Britney Spears. What I'm talking about is when you hear a more obscure song, something you haven't heard in awhile or something you never really knew. And you hear it everywhere - in the car, the store, the bank, even on a commercial. When this happens, I kinda feel like it's trying to tell me something. That I'm supposed to listen to what it's saying. Maybe someone is trying to get through to me through this song?

Or maybe I'm just crazy?

Whatever the case may be I keep hearing the Michael Buble song "Home." Seriously, nonstop for at least the last month. It's not a new song, my Michael Buble-loving friends tell me. It's actually a few years old. I'm not the hugest Buble fan in the world, never really heard his stuff before. Anyway, what all this rambling is to say is that I'm going to analyze these lyrics and figure out what they mean for me, because there must be something to all this, right? (Just go with me here ok!). If you have any thoughts, let me know (however, if you do think I'm crazy, please just keep it to yourself and pretend I'm not - please?) :)

So here it is:
"Home" by Michael Buble
(well, technically I'm not sure he wrote it....but he sang it at least).
Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know
And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that
Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
I’ve got to go home
Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home
And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
'Cause this was not your dream
But you always believed in me
Another winter day has come
And gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home
And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know
Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home
