A song about a time in my life when I traveled a bit and how home can have various meanings throughout life.

Lyrics
Sometimes you're meant to be a traveler
Goin' up that road alone.
But when you're young, these life's lessons have not been taught
By nights of longing or staring at a phone.

But when you're on a road
That's heading home
The miles draw away from your troubles.
All those cares behind you
And those empty nights are fading.

One trip home was there I met her
Standing in the cold of the rain soaked night.
With her smile that gave me shelter
From my storm of longing
And living on my own.

But when you're on a road
That's heading home
The miles draw you to that harbor.
All those cares behind you
And those empty nights are fading.

And so goes a common story
Of all the joy and glory
That soon gets turned around.
First she will say, "I love you"
Then the words will die on those lips
That once held your smile.

Sometimes you want to be a traveler
Goin' up that road alone.
So I was young and these life's lessons were taught to me
By nights of longing or staring at a phone.


But when you're on a road
That's going nowhere
The miles stretch out unending.
All those cares before you
And those empty nights are calling.



All those cares before you
And those empty nights are calling.

...are calling.
