Fifth floor
She's up in her dorm
Studyin' for her midterms
She's had one of those weeks
Where the world it seems is against her
Right on cue a picture pops up on her laptop
She can't pick her cell phone up fast enough

Sometimes you just need a little home
Some "hey mom and dad what's goin' on?
I'm just checkin' in
No there ain't nothing wrong"
Sometimes you just need a little home

Well he's tired, sits down in the sand
Shoe box in his hand, half a world away
And he smiles when he sees who it's from
He lays down his gun, no he can't wait
Cards and letters and something sweet
He takes a bite and reads
How everybody sends their love, he tears up

Sometimes you just need a little home
A little let you know you're not alone
To carry in your heart
And keep your spirit strong
Sometimes you just need a little home

(Sometimes) I'd like to drive back through that little town
(Sometimes) And get my feet back on
Get my feet back on the ground

Sometimes you just need a little home
A little "hey you've been gone way too long"
Yeah way to long
No matter how grown up you get
No matter how far you roam
Sometimes you just need a little home
(Home sweet home)

Sometimes you just need a little home
Hey "mom and dad, what's goin' on?"
