it's good to be back

its good to be back
i can read the signs and understand the conversations
its good to be back

ye its good to be back
the street lights are cozy, the highways are near family
the houses are mine and the store fronts are winking
ye its good to be back

oh, its good to be back
colored toilet paper, familiar hand soap
garbage bin placement, sellstuprunig
oh, its good to be back

ahh its good to be back
to see the food and drink
to buy the food and drink
and of course, to indulge in the food and drink
ahh its good to be back

sure is good to be back
my language
my food
my sights
my people
my family
my surroundings
sure is good to be back


so it really is good to be back...but i'm still so far away...
