Riff: Jack Johnson – “Home”

Sep 16, 2013

Well I can’t believe that my lime tree is dead/I thought it was sleeping/I guess it got fed up with not being fed

from Home lyrics by Jack Johnson

Presumably returning from a long world tour, an ever calm Johnson doesn’t even flinch after heading back to his North Shore of Oahu neighbourhood to find a garden full of overgrown grass, a dead lime tree and an attic taken over by birds on this ‘home is where the heart is’ closing ditty; [LISTEN].
