about

While crowdfunding our first EP (Getaway EP), one of our fans asked us to write a song about missing home. This is that song. Thank you fan (you know who you are!) :)

lyrics

I'm in the business of being all you need to be to make a dream come true
And when I’m in that place the thing I lack is truth
From the ones who know me most, where a step forward isn't based on anything I do
But everyday I make progress, stretch farther for the sake of my pursuit

I'm an elastic band doing the best I can
God knows my breaking point
But I can feel when I'm getting close

I can't keep this up, Can't hold it together
Stretched too far and don’t know how
To bring me back, where I belong
The home that forged who I am now

I spend a lot of my time choosing from the two of you which one I want most
Heart tossing inside hoping I can dance with both
In my mind a paradise, everything I stretch around to hold, hoping it will soothe my soul
And I’m cracked and dry, nothing I gain can give me back my life

I'm an elastic band doing the best I can
God knows my breaking point
But I can feel when I'm getting close

I can't keep this up, Can't hold it together
Stretched too far and don’t know how
To bring me back, where I belong
The home that forged who I am now

Before I snap, before I'm over
I need your love, I need your shoulder
Before I snap, before I'm over

I can't keep this up, Can't hold it together
Stretched too far and don’t know how
To bring me back, where I belong
The home that forged who I am now
I can't keep this up, Can't hold it together
Stretched too far and don’t know how
To bring me back, where I belong
The home that forged who I am now

Stretched too far and don’t know how
Stretched too far and don’t know now
