Homesick Lyrics - Kings Of Convenience

Review The Song (1)

I lose some sales
and my boss won't be happy
but I can't stop listening to the sound
of two soft voices blended in perfection
from the reels of this record that I found

every day there's a boy in the mirror
asking me
what are you doing here
finding all my previous motives
growing increasingly unclear

I travelled far and I burned all the bridges
I believed as SOON as I hit land
all the other
options held before me
WILL wither in the light of my plan

so I lose some sales
sponsored links
and my boss won't be happy
but there's only one thing on my mind
searching boxes underneath the counter
on a chance that on a tape I'd find

a song for
someone who needs somewhere
to long for

cause I no longer know
where home is

I just heard this song a couple hours ago, and it's been on my mind ever since. The soft way the voices blend together are an obvious imitation of Simon and Garfunkel's style. This whole song has a lovely 60's vibe to it, seeming to play off a lot of popular songs from that decade.
But what I really wanted to say was how this spoke to me directly....especially the last few phrases:

"a song for
someone who needs somewhere
to long for

cause I no longer know
where home is"

It nearly made me cry, because having grown up in a foreign country and only visited my 'homeland' a couple times has left me with a strong sense of...homesickness. It's like I always feel homesick. I don't know where I'm from, where I fit in, where I should go. And this song expresses those feelings so hopelessly and perfectly.
At least I have Heaven, the place I can really call home - but until I get there, this will be my theme song.
Thanks KOC for writing this song!!!! =D
