Heading Home Lyrics

I was so insatiable
Till the lights came on
And the stories got old
Now there's no one here I know
And the city outside's
Not the same anymore

And I
I remember when we were young
We'd write our names in the sand, so carelessly
Then the...

    I think that the person had a good life ahead of him, but kept thirsting for more. In his pursuits, he lost those close to him. He remembers him and his partner, how his actions caused her to leave. He is now a nobody, no one cares about him anymore. He doesn't know what to do and is lost, trying to find his way home.

    According to me, Heading Home is a nostalgic melody. It talks about a person, who probably lost his golden old days, and his friends, or his best friend. But through this song, he recalls those days and those evergreen days. The phrase 'I am Heading Home' suggests that he seems to relive those evergreen memories. That's what the song wants to express. It is really a heart-rending lyrics.

    This song says about a guy who has already broken his relationship. The phrase , I'm heading home now , predicts that he was going to find another warm.
    He memorizes how they spent their lives in past. They really enjoyed themselves, singing songs and walking on the beach.
    But now he understood that how ignorant are the first lovers and the intact love. (We'd write our names....)
    They've made so many dreams but now all they have taken by the waves.
    Maybe in here the writer using some symbolic words rain and waves. But it isn't clear that the writer refers those words to another boy or their destiny.
    But somehow all the things are over now .At last it says that she'll find him. But the words l can't see l can't breathe any more
    tells that he isn't now interested to be with her again or with her memories.
    But still he was agonizing about it ,so he drinks thinking that her ex girl may enjoying her love. But through the word '' high'' love ,it predicts that he isn't angry about the girl any more but worths her love, that he has received previously.
    The continuous phrase I'm heading home now says that he is eagerly waiting to find another affair .

    I think the writer lost his friend and now he's going back to the places where they used to play so as to relive those moments they shared together

    I believe that this song is about how someone lost their girlfriend or crush. They used to be careless as friends, but as they got older, their love got stronger but eventually fell apart. One of the people feels lonelier than ever, and is really upset.
