In My Own Back Yard
F. Bonifazi & S. Key - 2013

Verse 1
Hang-in 'round another jet-way - wasting time
Lookn' at my life - for a reason and a rhyme
So many twists - so many turns
But there's a place I always return Chorus
When the road ahead is hard to see
Just a hint - of where I'll be
No use wanderin' - so-O-oo far
'Cause my heart is home - in my own back yard!

Verse 2
My back porch swing - my faithful dog
Roastin' treats over a crackling log
Play'n with my kids - on a sunny day
One more time Papa - why won't you stay?


Verse 3
My plane is leaving - I'm heading home
End of the line - no need to roam
Might fall asleep by the time it's dawn
Dreaming of a life I've had all along!

Final Chorus
When the road ahead is hard to see
Just a hint of where I'll be
No use wanderin' so-SO-so far
Now my heart is home

Myyy heaaaart is home
Now my heart is home
In my own back yard! |
Short Song Description:
Sitting in airports gives me chances to reflect upon goals and priorities.
Long Song Description:
Story Behind the Song:
Reflecting on a life that takes us away from home can lead us back there once we realize our priorities.

While we think we can see and plan our futures, it's just glimpse of what's really up ahead.

Focus on the things you can contol...the rest is by chance.
