Because it means so much

I was talking with Scott today about our two favorite Dispatch songs off Bang Bang, "Two Coins" and "Out Loud," and I realized that some of the lines in "Out Loud" are so relevant to say to the people I'll be leaving behind in less than 3 days...
And if I was gone from the land we know,
Would you be the dawn and let your beauty still show?
And if you were walking,
Heard the cold night coming,
Would you call my name?
'Cause you know that I'd come running

If you'd call my name out loud...
Do you suppose that I would come running?
Do you suppose I'd come at all?
You know I would.

- Dispatch, "Out Loud"
I know, it'll only be two weeks, but it still struck me as meaningful.
Here's one that I really feel when I think about my second homeland. It actually really meant a lot to me when I first listened to it while I was there the first time, thinking of home. But now another "home" comes to mind.
It's yet to be determined,
but the air is thick,
and my hope is feeling worn.
I'm missing home,
and I'm glad you're not a part of this,
there's parts of me that will be missed...

It's colder than it ought to be in March
and I still got a day or two ahead of me
till I'll be heading home,
into your arms again.
And the people here are asking after you.
It doesn't make it easier,
It doesn't make it easier to be away...

I'd like to hire a plane.
I'd see you in the morning,
when the day is fresh.
I'm coming home again.

But it's warmer where you're waiting.
It feels more like July.
There's pillows in their cases,
and one of those is mine...

- Dashboard Confessional, "A Plain Morning"
