  • I've gotten used to being gone
    Silhouettes and unmade beds
    And more and more when I'm alone
    I think of you

    I'm getting tired of going nowhere
    But it's all I ever do
    But I can turn this thing around
    Guess I don't want to

    I turn the key, open up the door
    I sit my suitcase down on the hardwood floor
    And I call your name, and I climb the stairs
    Then I realize that you're not there

    And I get homesick
    I get homesick
    I get homesick
    For anywhere but home

    I think I used to have the answers
    Oh but now I just don't know
    Well that question still hangs on
    Why did I let you go?
    Why did I let you go?

    I turn the key, open up the door
    I sit my suitcase down on the hardwood floor
    And I call your name, and I climb the stairs
    Then I realize that you're not there

    And I get homesick
    I get homesick
    I get homesick
    For anywhere but home

    I keep wishing I'll lose my mind time and time again
    There's a picture running through my head
    Of me and you up there

    I get homesick
    I get homesick
    I get homesick
    For anywhere but home
    Anywhere but home

    I get homesick
    I get homesick (Oh yes I do)
    I get homesick
    For anywhere but
    Anywhere but home
    Oh but anywhere but home
