I sit here on the stairs and listen to
The night time as the daylight fades away
It's such a haunting and familiar tune
And when I hear it in the distance I can say

That I'm home
In Massachusetts
Where my daughters and my wife they wait for me
All alone
But the truth is
It's where I always am
It's where I long to be
Because I'm home

The north shore is where my father lives
I wear my red sox hat around the world with pride
But the Berkshires are where my heart is
And when I see them in the distance I could cry

Because I'm home
In Massachusetts
Where my daughters and my wife they wait for me
All alone
But the truth is
It's where I always am
It's where I long to be

Nyla started pre-school
Indie just turned two
Zoe's just the perfect mix of me and you
They keep getting older
Time keeps going by
To think about it makes your daddy wanna cry

So I just passed the sign that welcomes me to Worthington
Established long before this country came to be
A place that hasn't really changed with time
The way this country that I love it used to be

Because I'm home
In Massachusetts
Where my daughters and my wife they wait for me
All alone
But the truth is
It's where I always am
It's where I long to be

Because I'm home
In Massachusetts
Where my hero teaches classes everyday
And where my friends
Don't treat me different
It's where my family is
It's where I'll always stay
Because I'm home
