about

This is a song about sitting in hotel rooms, drinking instant coffee and looking out the window thinking about home. Dedicated to those who, due to Covid-19, have found themselves stranded on the other side of the world.

lyrics

lyrics
I know you wish that I was here, and you might think that I don't care
The truth is that I'd rather be with you too.

And if I fly 1000 miles, a prisoner in an empty sky,
the only thing I'm going to miss is you.

My stomach turns as the plane turns west, the lights get brighter every breath now your almost closer enough to touch.

And I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you.
And I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you

Holed up in a hotel room, stirring coffee with a plastic spoon
bummed out, I needed to leave so soon

I hear the traffic from the second floor, like crashing waves on a distant shore. Look out the window and I miss you even more.

My stomach turns as the plane turns west, the lights get brighter every breath now your almost closer enough to touch.

And I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you.
And I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you

And no more distant calls in the night
the compromise just ain't worth the fight
I cannot stand this pain anymore
but soon I'll be right there at your door....cause

My stomach turns as the plane turns west, the lights get brighter every breath now your almost closer enough to touch.

I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you.
And I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you

My stomach turns as the plane turns west, the lights get brighter every breath now your almost closer enough to touch.

I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you.
And I'm halfway home, I'm halfway home I'm halfway home to you
