Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Just when I think that I am cool and hip (do they still say that??), I hear a song and wonder “where in the world have I been that I have not heard this song before!”

I was watching “The Voice” and this was one of the songs that the group sang. “Home” (2009) by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. So, right after I heard the song, I had to Google it and find the video on YouTube.

Like I said before, where have I been that I have never heard this song? Apparently, 20,644,037 people have seen one of their YouTube video. And the over million people who have seen the band on The David Letterman Show. I guess I must of missed the memo.

So, now that I have listen to the song close to 15 times and can whistle the first part of the song, I’m I cool now??

And in case you want to sing (or whistle) to the song, here are the lyrics.

Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you Holy Moley, Me-oh-My, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend,
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie,
chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park,
through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls,
alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die,
barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the streets we’re running
free like i’s only you and mee
Geez, you’re somethin’ to see.

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)

La la la la, take me HomeBaby, I’m coming Home

“Jade?”
“Alexander?”
“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do, you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete
and nearly broke your ass
and you were bleeding all over the place
and I rushed you off to the hospital.
Do you remember that?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something
I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat
smoking a cigarette you thought
was going to be your last,
I was falling deep, deeply in love with you
and I never told you ’til just now.”
“Now I know.”

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is whenever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

Ahh, Home
Yes, I am Home
Home is when I’m alone with you.

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Moats & boats & waterfalls & pay phone calls

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you
