Brief Description

I was worried this sounded preachy (no one likes being told what to do or what not to do), but then I realized it's positive advice.  It's a song I wrote for a young person who has left home, moved far away, and is hesitant to return.  Maybe they're hiding from their past, or they're ashamed of not becoming "successful," and maybe they're too proud to admit they miss where they're originally from.  The young person has probably changed a little, their family and friends have probably changed a little, the place has changed a little, but they shouldn't be afraid to come back because some of those changes can be surprisingly good, and there's a lot to be said for the advantages.  Something like that anyway.
