Fire Motivational Song
« on: September 06, 2014, 08:55:03 AM »
This was my "Road Not Taken" song I used to listen to in college.  Couldn't find a youtube version, but they lyrics are pretty good on their own.

Home By Now
Words & music by David LaMotte
©1999 Lower Dryad Music/ASCAP
10/26/99 Sunnyvale CA
This song was originally recorded on David LaMotte’s 2000 album “Corners.”

You were reading in the café about that kid who left his home
Disappeared into the north woods and died up there alone
You were staring out the window like your thoughts had wandered far
Then you ordered cappucino and got back into your car

Keep the traffic moving
There’s nothing to see here
Rubbernecking in the buffet line
Where the choices all seem far too clear
So comfortable it’s painful
Can’t feel it anyhow
Hey if you lived here
You’d be home by now

They were sitting in the hot tub of a cheap resort hotel
They were toasting to the good life, but they didn’t look too well
He said this is why you work for forty years and pay your dues
Then she told me about his bypass, how he’s careful with his food

Keep the traffic moving
There’s nothing to see here
Rubbernecking in the buffet line
Where the choices all seem far too clear
So comfortable it’s painful
Can’t feel it anyhow
Hey if you lived here
You’d be home by now

Pay your money, take your choice
Choose your vision, lose your voice
Tell the story with a sigh of a thousand roads not taken

I saw you glancing in that window driving past that pretty house
There was a family in the dining room, forks half-way to their mouths
Makes you want to pass your plate back to have a little more
But you left that table years ago, your key won’t fit the door

Keep the traffic moving
There’s nothing to see here
Rubbernecking in the buffet line
Where the choices all seem far too clear
So comfortable it’s painful
Can’t feel it anyhow
Hey if you lived here
You’d be home by now
