"Like Us"

I’m sure you’d love where I’m from
Green like you’ve never seen before
Take a ride through the hills
We’re not in Cali anymore
Drive around and I point out
All the places from my stories
That’s my school and there’s the train
Here it is in all its glory

It’s crazy being somewhere
Time stands still
But if you want me to take you home
Of course I will

And I bet my family would love you
They take a little warming up to
They’ll press you on the details of the first night that we met
My mom would bake you something sweet
That good southern hospitality
And you’d look around and wonder why I ever even left
And wouldn’t that be nice
But we’d never get inside
As if I had a choice to fall in love
But home isn't home for people like us

You understand
We can’t hold hands
Unless we like getting dirty looks
And as we walk
Down memory lane
You’d see that most of them ain’t good
That’s the church where I first learned
That I wasn’t the good kind of different
People age but never change
They just hide behind white fences

It’s crazy being somewhere
Time stands still
I thought you’d meet by now
But you probably never will

And I bet my family would love you
They take a little warming up to
They’ll press you on the details of the first night that we met
Oh, my mom would bake you something sweet
That good southern hospitality
You’d look around and wonder why I ever even left
And wouldn’t that be nice
But we’d never get inside
As if I had a choice to fall in love
But home isn’t home for people like us

So much irony in that
They’d stop you at the welcome mat
And be real nice when they tell me
I should've never come back
And everything we expect
Is exactly what we don’t get
Well, I guess that’s what we get

I bet my family would love you
If they ever got to know you
We’d laugh about the details of the first night that we met
And ,my mom would bake you something sweet
And sneak you the family recipe
And you’d look around and wonder why I ever even left
Wouldn’t that be nice
But we’ll never even try
As if we had a choice to fall in love
But home isn’t home for people like us
No, home isn’t home for people like us
