Ode to You

Another summer day
Has come and gone awayIn Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home
May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know
And I’ve been keeping all
the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but
I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that
Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home
Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home
And I feel just like
I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
'Cause this was not your dream
But you always believed in me
Another winter day has come
And gone awayIn even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go homeLet me go home
And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know
Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

This was Kristin Teets' and mine theme song before I left. I am definately starting to feel these words. I really am needing a break from these people. I would love to just be home for a week. There are plenty of great people here, but at the same time I don't want to be around any of them. I say that, but there are a few I don't mean this for. My roommate and I keep argueing. Which is making me upset. I will be free travelling with her. Just the two of us. So we really need to work out our differences. I know I can't play a card game with her. I am definately not that into it. I just want everyone to be happy and she gets way too competetive for me. Right now she is sick and she needs loving, but I just want to talk out an argument. She is great, don't get me wrong. I like her a lot. I just hate how things are right now. It bothers me so much.

Right now I am on the free internet in our hotel in Thessoloniki. The second largest city in Greece. There is a demonstration right now downtown(basically right where I am) because they believe that the statue of Alexander the Great belongs here and not where it is now. Of course if they get this statue back it will be a turning point for museums also. The Egyptian Museum wants their ancient artifacts from the Louvre and the museum in London. Every Museum everywhere will be sought out by the countries who have things in their museum and ask for it back, rightfully so. So, I doubt this will happen. Nonetheless, I'm in a town with a demonstration right now. So that's something.

I'm missing home and I'm missing you if you're reading this. I send you my love and I know you do the same.

You can go where ever you want, but home is always where you left it. There's nothing like it. I guaruntee you, everywhere you go, whatever city it is, it is just another city. But, you're home is your heart. Stay with those you love.
