Already Home

I heard this song the other day. Well, I actually watched the music video because Darren Criss told me to. I already knew I would love it simply because he was in it. But I didn’t expect to resonate so much with the lyrics of the song. I also didn’t expect the music video to be so unique and so lovely. As I watched the video a few times, I came to realize something. That even though in a few weeks, I will no longer be living in the city I’ve lived in my whole life, I shouldn’t feel sad or scared about it. I should instead remember one thing: Home is where the heart is. I can’t expect to know when or where, or even when, these things will happen. But no matter where I am, I will find all kinds of new loves and because of that I will already be home.

You say Love is what you put into it.

You say that I’m losing my will.

Don’t you know that you’re all that I think about?

You make up a half of the whole.

You say that it’s hard to commit to it.

You say that it’s hard standing still.

Don’t you know that I spend all my nights

counting backwards the days till I’m home.

If only New York wasn’t so far away.

I promise this city won’t get in our way.

When you’re scared and alone

just know that I’m already home.

I say that we’re right in the heart of it.

A love only we understand.

I will bend every light in this city

and make sure they’re shining on you.

If only New York wasn’t so far away.

I promise this city won’t get in our way.

And when you’re scare and alone

just know that I’m already home.

When life takes its own course

sometimes we just don’t get to choose.

I’d rather be there next to you.

Promise you’ll wait for me.

Wait for me.

Wait till I’m home.

All I have is this feeling inside of me.

The only thing I’ve ever known.

If only New York wasn’t so far away.

I promise this city won’t get in our way.

When you’re scared and alone

just that I’m already home. I

f only New York wasn’t so far away.

I will be there every step of the way.

When you’re scared and alone

just know that I’m already home.

Just know that I’m already home.

  1. I’m so excited for you but also sad you’ll be leaving as I’ve totally enjoyed having you home this past year. I’m so hopeful this summer program helps get you a position within a publishing company. I want you to be excited and passionate about the work you do. I know the job working for Judy has been less than exciting, but I’m so proud that you’ve hung in there as that experience will nonetheless be important in helping get a position doing something you love!

    I’m missing you already, if only NYC wasn’t so far away… at least you’re only a plane ride away and we can chat or email or skype anytime you need to!

    I love you! Mom
