Josh Ritter "Homecoming" #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #EmbracingU #LovingU #ComingHome

Introduction:
Josh Ritter

“Homecoming is a single word, and we use it to describe a single event. But true homecoming requires more time. It seems to be a process rather than a moment. Perhaps we come home the way the earth comes home to the sun. It could be that homecoming is always a return and our understanding of home deepens with each encounter.” 

― Christie Purifoy” 

The song that I am going to feature this evening is titled “Homecoming(2) and sung by the brilliant folk singer, songwriter, Josh Ritter

"Homecoming"  is considered a folk, rock genre and is the 8th track in John Ritter's eighth full-length studio album titled "Sermon on the Rocks". It was released October 16, 2015.

The video was published on Dec 9, 2015 and uploading on YouTube by Josh Ritter. It's a brilliant song/lyrics. I highly recommend a listen. I heard it recently at the end of a movie titled "Strong". This movie is highly recommended. It is all about PTSD and is a true story.

The lyrics are listed below for your reading pleasure; however watch and listen closely...

"Homecoming" (3)
I feel a change in the weather,
I feel a change in me,
The days are getting shorter and the birds begin to leave,
Even me, yes, yes, y'all,
Who has been so long alone,
I'm headed home,
Headed home

The nights are getting colder now,
The air is getting crisp,
I first tasted the universe on a night like this,
A box of wine, and I'll abide,
In the hunger in her eyes,
In a place where the tree of good and evil still resides,
Still resides

Homecoming,
Homecoming, homecoming,

She said "show me what you got, babe,
I'm not like other girls",
Just give me your bad self 
And a place for us to make a stand and I can move the world
Lift the valley from the floor, honey,
It'll turn to the sky,
They'll say that it's a miracle and you'll know damn well they're right,
Damn well they're right

Homecoming, (Don't go away now)
Homecoming, homecoming, (Don't go away now)
Homecoming, (Don't go away now)
Homecoming, homecoming, (Don't go away now)

(Hey now)
When the oracle spoke to me she was like a roadside song, (Don't go away now)
Do unto others as you would have them do, 
Even if in turn they do you wrong, (Hey now)
This town right here is my everything,
Though I've been torn away, (Don't go away now)

It has my heart,
It has my heart,
They stole my heart,
My heart is there, (Hey now)
My heart is there,
My heart is there, (Don't go away now)

Get just a little bit higher,
Get a little tongue tied,
Gonna try to find whatever ever made time,
That kind of immemorial, 
That time before the fall,
That time before the autumn
Really turned the corner
Drive east of Eden,
'Till we start to feel the west,
You were never far from nowhere,
You could see it from the edge of town,
Honey, baby, wonder how it feel now,
Somehow I can't believe that it could feel like the four, but,

The air's getting colder now,
The nights are getting crisp,
I first tasted the universe on a night like this,
And I'll abide a box of wine,
And the hunger in her eyes,
In a place where the tree of good and evil still resides,

Homecoming,
Homecoming, homecoming, (Homecoming)
Homecoming,
Homecoming, homecoming, (Homecoming)
Homecoming,
Homecoming, homecoming, (Don't go away now)
Homecoming, (Don't go away now)
Homecoming, homecoming...
