"This is Real Life"

The best of us are miles from home
But we won’t ever be alone
Something tells us that we are in the right place
Because we all have similar interests
And we may not all believe the same thing
And we’ll either fight or just be okay about it
We probably could practice a little bit of tolerance
But we all know that this isn’t permanent
And some of us aren’t ready to be here
And those people drive me crazy
Like Travis, man you drive me crazy

Yeah we stay up all night long
We don’t want to miss any thing
Sleep is a waste of our precious time
We are sick of the home in our dreams
And we sleep on during the day
Nothing else to do anyway
The sun isn’t really shining
And we’re all messed up in our timing
They tell me we’ve been here for weeks
But I’m pretty sure that it’s been years
I guess it doesn’t really matter

Some of us have tears for what we left behind
Some of us have mixed feelings in mind
And it’s crazy…we all talk different
I can’t believe he said “pop” instead of “soda”
And she said “mass” instead of saying “a lot”
But that’s okay just look at us growing
Sure, I'll take care of you when you drink too much
But don't expect me to feel sorry for you
The city's streets are calling our name
So we walk them all night like they are ours
We don't just want to hang around and do nothing

Yeah we stay up all night long
We don’t want to miss any thing
Sleep is a waste of our precious time
We are sick of the home in our dreams
And we sleep on during the day
Nothing else to do anyway
The sun isn’t really shining
And we’re all messed up in our timing
They tell me we’ve been here for weeks
But I’m pretty sure that it’s been years
I guess it doesn’t really matter

This is where our life begins
Before this was just preparation
Now we need to walk down the long road
So get your boots on
This is real life(repeated)

And we all sing yeah, yeah, we feel good
We are in the right place

pop vs soda
this was good... a nice song about life's progression... i'm guessing to college
"The best of us are miles from home

the opening lines gave me that impression.
it's so funny how people call it different things; soda pop. i, personally, say soda because my parents say soda... but my friend always says pop and i always make fun of her for it... like when she says "will you walk with me to the pop machine?" i always reply "the soda machine? sure" when you're at home it's like you're in a bubble, where everyone talks like you so you don't think of it anyother way, then you go to something with people from other areas and you realize that not everyone talks like you... it's so crazy... okay, i'm rambling like a crazy person... i'll quit... to sum it up, i like this... nice observational piece.
p.s. i also love the lines
Yeah we stay up all night long
We don’t want to miss anything
Sleep is a waste of our precious time
so funny... i know exactly what you're talking about.

Travis
From what I've read of your work, it seems like this Travis kid would have to be a pretty big jerk to make it onto your bad list...I hope I never meet him. Yeah, that's it.
