Song Description

An anthem for those who find family gatherings particularly challenging

Story Behind the Song

Never mind!

Lyrics

It's a funny thing, not so funny thing
the way we tear each other down
And all the bad feelings festering
get swept under the rug
for appearance sake on all the big holidays,
when honesty gives way
to a smile that says "How good it is to be back home"

"...And who the hell do you think you are
going after exactly what you need
when I gave up my dreams to the local bar?
Now I'm gonna drag you down with me -
I need someone to depress -
Don't you dare show any stress -
force a smile and say 'How good it is to be back home' "

It's an awful thing, such an awful thing
the way you won't leave me alone
And all your pointless memories
never measure up to how I've grown
into someone you don't know
So now it's time to go
force a smile and say "How good it is to be back home"

...for appearacnce sake on all the big holidays
when honesty gives way
to a smile that says "How good it is to be back home"

It's a funny thing, not so funny thing
the way we tear each other down.
