I've watched the world go by
Outside a window
I still can't believe where I am now
It's been forever long
Adventures come and gone
And I'm left alone but not let down

'Cause I have found a gravity
A voice that pulls me to my knees
Telling me "Remember where you're from"

This southern air is all I need
Breathe it in and I can see
Canvasses behind my eyes
All the colors of my life
This southern air is in my lungs
It's in every word I've sung
It seems the only truth I know
Is we'll always be home

I've thought about the day
When I could truly say I'm better now
Well here I am
'Cause I have left this gravity
Grab a hold and carry me
And I will not forget where I am from
Forget where I am from

This southern air is all I need
Breathe it in and I can see
Canvasses behind my eyes
All the colors of my life
This southern air is in my lungs
It's in every word I've sung
It seems the only truth I know
Is we'll always be home
Always be home, always be home

The sun lays down inside the ocean
I'm right where I belong
Feel the air, the salt on my skin
The future's coming on
And after living through these wild years
I'm coming out alive
I just wanna lay my head here
And stop running for a while

This southern air is all I need
Breathe it in and I can see
Canvasses behind my eyes
All the colors of my life
This southern air is in my lungs
It's in every word I've sung
It seems the only truth I know
Is we'll always be home
Always be home, always be home

*interlude*

This southern air is in my lungs
It's in every word I've sung
It seems the only truth I know
Is we'll always be home
Always be home, always be home.
