people are always saying they want to go back home again

people are always saying they want to go back home again
where everything was beautiful and nothing ever changed
and everyone they knew fell in love with them instantly
and no one ever got hurt that really mattered.

They say these things at parties, when everyone's ordered
and the waiter hasn't come back yet.

After a few drinks, people tell you they wouldn't go home again
even if it was the same as they remember it.
