Wanting to get out of your HOME.
Visit people in their HOME.
Change of scenery,instead of what is at HOME.
But after a few hours, you want to go HOME.

What we couldn't wait to get out of for a change.
Is what we miss and we don't feel strange.

It is nice to get out of our HOME.

But there is no place like our HOME.
