  • Every now and then I go back in time
    To that little red house on Oakmont Drive
    Next to that big magnolia tree
    A wide-eyed girl running wild and free, that's me
    Me and my brothers in the Georgia sun
    Runnin' through the yard with the sprinklers on
    Lazy dog lyin' in the cool green grass
    Never thought life would fly so fast, it don't last

    I still hear that old sweet song
    A simple melody calling me back home
    Where the love grows pure and strong
    That's where my heart
    That's where my heart belongs

    Skippin' stones and kickin' cans
    Stealing my first kiss by the lemonade stand
    I can't forget those southern nights
    Falling stars and fireflies, felt so right

    I still hear that old sweet song
    A simple melody calling me back home
    Where the love grows pure and strong
    That's where my heart
    That's where my heart belongs

    Those family days are all but gone
    Everybody moved out, everybody's moved on
    When I'm all alone and feeling like
    I'm stuck in the middle of this crazy life
    I just close my eyes

    And I can hear that old sweet song
    A simple melody calling me back home
    I can hear that old sweet song
    A simple melody calling me back home
    Where the love grows pure and strong
    That's where my heart
    That's where my heart belongs
