Anywhere But Here

This is one of the first few songs I ever wrote when I started writing last year, but I never really had the courage to show anyone any of them, so I figure I'll start with this one. Hope y'all like it.

------------------------------------------------------

Anywhere But Here
Blue sky turns to starry night
Dont know why but it feels so right
Sittin' here on the roof of this old shed

I got my friends on both sides
And no one to tie us down
I wouldnt want it any other way

This is where I belong
With my family and friends so close
I'd go to the ends of the earth for them
I would do anything
This is my world, my home
And I wouldnt wanna be
Anywhere but here

I've lived here all of eighteen years
Through all the ups and downs, the fears and the tears
I wouldnt change one single thing

I've got everything I need in this little town
They say, "Home is where the heart is"
And I understand that now

This is where I belong
With my family and friends so close
I'd go to the ends of the earth for them
I would do anything
This is my world, my home
And I wouldnt wanna be
Anywhere but here

I could go anywhere in the world
But I'd rather be here

I'm where I belong
With my family and my friends
I would go anywhere
Do anything for them
This is my world, my home
And I wouldnt wanna be
No, I wouldnt wanna be
Anywhere but here.

--------------------------

(EDITED VERSION)
Blue sky turns to starry night
I dont know why but it feels so right
Sittin' here on the roof of this old shed.

Got my friends on both sides
And no one to tie us down, I
Wouldnt want it any other way.

This is where I belong
With my family and friends
I'd go to the ends of the Earth for them
And I know they'd do the same for me
This is my world, my home
And I wouldnt wanna be
No I wouldnt wanna be
Anywhere but here

I've lived here eighteen years
Through the ups and the downs
But I wouldnt change one single thing

They say that, "Home is where the heart is"
Well, I think I understand that now, 'cause
I've got everything right here

This is where I belong
With my family and friends
I'd go to the ends of the Earth for them
And I know they'd do the same for me
This is my world, my home
And I wouldnt wanna be
No, I wouldnt wanna be
Anywhere but here

I could go anywhere in the world
But I'd rather be right here

I'm where I belong
With my family and friends
We'd do anything for each other
Go to any lengths
This is my world, my home
And I've never felt so free
So, I wouldnt wanna be
No, I wouldnt wanna be
Baby, I wouldnt wanna be
Anywhere but here.

This is so well written!

"Blue sky turns to starry night
Dont know why but it feels so right
Sittin' here on the roof of this old shed"

"I've lived here all of eighteen years
Through all the ups and downs, the fears and the tears
I wouldnt change one single thing"

These two verses are amazing! they show a lot of emotion, and they have something very relatable about them.

your skills are great! keep it up

I've added the editted version that matches the guitar piece to my song. Check it out and see what y'all think. I'd love input!
