American Authors Lyrics


I've got these letters tattooed on my arm
That remind me each second of where I come from
And the long hard road to get me back home

Back to my mama who raised me up right
And back to my lady, I held every night
It's a long hard road trying to get home

I'd been gone now for too long
I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
I'm just trying to get home

I've got this image engraved in my mind
Of a life that I had in a whole different time
It still breathes and lives at the end of the road

I've seen mountains and valleys through my missing days
But I never once parted with how you begged me to stay
I will run down that long hard and treacherous road to get home

I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
I'm just trying to get home

I've been gone for so long
But my heart it carries on
As it pounds like a drum
On my journey back home

I've been gone for so long
But my heart it carries on
I won't give up

I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home

I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
I'm just trying to get home

I'm just trying to get home

and also every single line sort of leads to percy jackson: 
I'm not trying to stop a hurricane
I'm not trying to shake the ground below
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
I'm not trying to part the ocean waves
I'm not trying to overthrow the throne
I'm just trying to find a way to make it back home
I'm just trying to get home

I've got this image engraved in my mind 
Of a light that I had in a whole different time
It still breathes and lives at the end of the road

I've seen mountains and valleys through my missing days
But I never once parted with how you begged me to stay
I will run down that long hard and treacherous road to get home
I've been gone for so long 
But my heart it carries on 
As it pounds like a drum
On my journey back home 

I've been gone for so long 
But my heart it carries on 
I won't give up
im just trying to get home....  


i mean like really....

I'm thinking of a person who lost himself but now he found himself and he's going back to where it all began and he feels proud and happy that he finally did it.

I love you guys. Seriously Luck, Home, and Best  Day of my Life lift me up every time I need a boost

Iron Manatee

how are you guys not the most famous band in the world already

Amanda Lyons

Why does everyone think this song belongs to a book character? Or a movie character? Why can't it belong to everybody, and anyone? It's a beautiful song, and it can belong to a man on a business trip on a plane going back to see his family.
