Song Description

Mid-Tempo grooving modern country. Full band. Guitar focused, with piano and warm string arrangement. Male vocal lead with BGV's.

Story Behind the Song

This is a song about my journey moving from my home town of El Paso, Tx to Northern Michigan. Leaving my friends and family and life behind to chase a dream. It's about finding yourself, and learning that sometimes "home" and "hometown" don't mean the same thing, and that it's ok to have both roots and wings.

Like the vocal intro. Great idea to bring it down at the beginning and build. Good vocal. Very good country voice. The chorus has great energy. Again, very good bringing the track down at the end of the bridge. Builds nicely again.

Lyrics

Got a call from my buddy back home last friday night
Been awhile since we'd caught up, guess the time was finally right.
We talked about our jobs, and out kids, and our wives,
And our crazy busy lives.

I said, how's my baby sister. Haven't seen her in awhile.
Have you met that boy she's dating? I hear he's a little wild.
He said, naw he's fine,
But if he steps out of line, man, you know who to call.
And brother I miss you, let's talk again soon.

Got me thinking about that El Paso skyline,
And that sea of lights burning brighter than the stars tonight
There's a long road behind me, 1000 miles of memories
But I left my hometown roots, so I could learn to find my wings
I remember the night we climbed that water tower
And ended up running form the cops.
In that rusted up, brown Chevy truck
with the bumper busted off

Yeah we were bulletproof and we never knew
How much we pushed our luck,
Or where we'd all end up

And it gets me thinking about that El Paso skyline,
And that sea of lights burning brighter than the stars tonight
There's a long road behind me, 1000 miles of memories
But I left my hometown roots, so I could learn to find my wings

Some days I miss my friends and my family
And that house on Daugherty rd.
I miss Friday nights, football lights, and my high school blue and gold
And that star on the mountain seems to call me back home.

And it gets me thinking about that El Paso skyline,
And that sea of lights burning brighter than the stars tonight
There's a long road behind me, 1000 miles of memories
But I left my hometown roots, so I could learn to find my wings
