I once had a girlfriend who was talking to a friend while at work. This friend was telling stories of all of his travels around Europe and all the fun he had in pubs and bumming around in hostels and such. She phoned me feeling kinda down because she'd never done any traveling and was feeling a little jealous. I can't remember if this song made her feel better. I wonder if she ever got to go to Stonehenge.
I wrote this song from the perspective of someone who prefers the solidity of their roots and security of their home. Personally, I'm the homestead kinda guy. I've enjoyed the limited traveling I've done but there is something about the feeling of coming in the front door of your own place after a time away that really just puts me at ease.
Funny how sometimes you have to miss something to appreciate it.
