Kings Of Convenience – Homesick lyrics
I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy,
But I can't stop listening to the sound
Of two soft voices
Blended in perfection
From the reels of this record that I've found.

Every day there's a boy in the mirror asking me...
What are you doing here?
Finding all my previous motives
Growing increasingly unclear.

I've traveled far and I've burned all the bridges
I believed as soon as I hit land
All the other options held before me,
Would wither in the light of my plan.

So I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy,
But there's only one thing on my mind
Searching boxes underneath the counter,
On a chance that on a tape I'd find...
A song for someone who needs somewhere to long for.

Because I no longer know where home is.

    I love this music because I can relate with the lyrics, especially the last chore. I prefer National over the Kings of Convenience, but both bands have songs that I love because I am very emotional and care about the people that I love. As I'm writing this text, tears drop of my eyes because I'm remembering all the good and bad moments that I had in my life. The best way to feel nostalgic is by watching movies like Submarine and Blue Valentine. However my favourite movies are Clockwork Orange and Kill Bill, but I'm not a violent person. When I'm sad, the only persons that can cheer me up is Mafalda, Maria and Doce, although they are my dogs. I don't know why, but I tend to relate to strange people, maybe I am a little strange too, but that's fine, because normal people are boring. I only care about few people, and I expect much of them because they are the best thing in my life, right next to Tom Hardy. Plot Twist: I am Ricardo and Isabel is part of my imagination. As you can see, she's amazing, I wish she was real so finally I would have someone to share my hopes and dreams.

    I only know this song since yesterday, cause a real cool friend showed it to me. I am a strange guy who like strange stuff, like "Sharknado" (Best movie ever!) and this year one of my dreams came true: I met someone just as weird as me (except she didn't watch "Sharknado"). This person found the most obscure secret about me: I actually have feelings. All my life I tried to hide it, but now it's just impossible. I feel a lots of feelings and it's good to have someone who can understand them. I'm always funny, but most people think I'm just retarded. I don't mind cause I know they're just stupid. Isabel always thinks I'm serious, but most times I'm just joking and she laughs and then gets mad and then laughs again. I always have a tissue to offer, so people will think I'm kind and that I care about them, but I really don't cause I hate most of the persons I know. Now, my bff is writing about me and I'm just pissing her off (not literally) cause I'm just stupid. But I know she likes me the way I am, even when I can't express how I feel, especially in person. The only place I can express myself is at the supermarket so if you want a deep talk take me to Continente.
