Dedicated to all of my friends who make Gonzaga feel like home.
Whenever I go back home for a while
Everything seems to make me smile
The vast blue sky and the smell of the breeze
Always thought I'd never want to leave
This is the house where I grew up
Drinking tea from a plastic cup
And the park where we'd fly kites
And swing until we'd jump and fly
My old high school, the football field
Cheering and crying it's come to yield
Here we have the basketball court
Where heart stopping game wining shots have been scored
The best milkshakes in town are made right here
Afterwards we'll go on a walk if the sky is clear
Or bowling if it's monday night
Look up and see Tablerock shining so bright
This is my favorite route to run
Through the hills under the summer sun
Going for miles feet beating over the ground
Without encountering another sound
Float down the river on a sweltering day
Laughing and tanning along the way
Here's our famous blue smurf turf
Ducks try to land on what they think is surf
Sunset over Payette Lake
Snow drifting down in fluffy flakes
Endless stars if you stay up late
Constellations you begin to create
Seems so strange I've come to miss
Not only my hometown, all of this
But now i love another place too
Friends are like family its hard to feel blue.
