Gym Class Heroes, ‘A— Back Home’ Feat. Neon Hitch – Lyric Video Premiere
Hitch introduces the track with the hook, “I don’t know where you’re goin’ or when you’re comin’ home / I left the keys under the mat to our front door / For one more chance to hold you close / I don’t where you’re goin’ / Just get your a— back home.”
The mid-tempo song utilizes guitar accents but keeps the focus on the vocals, as frontman Travie McCoy raps about having a girl who reluctantly puts up with the fact that he’s constantly away from home, living the rock & roll lifestyle:
“You’ve been nothing but amazing and I never take that for granted / Half of these birds would’ve flew the coop, but you, you truly understand it / And in fact you stood beside me everytime you heard some bogus-ness / You deserve a standing O cause they’d have just been over it.”
The lyrics video exemplifies that, with footage of a couple who make their relationship work, even if the guy ops for takeout and accidentally misses a home-cooked meal prepared by his girlfriend.
It’s a cute song, especially when McCoy reassures his love interest they are meant for each other. “We put the ‘us’ in trust, baby!,” he promises. It sounds like these kids are going to find a way to make it work.
Hitch was excited to work with GCH, writing on her blog, “I’ve always been a big fan of their music and it’s an honor to have the chance to collaborate with Travie and the boys.”
‘A— Back Home’ appears on Gym Class Heroes’ upcoming album ‘The Papercut Chronicles II,’ which also includes ‘Stereo Hearts,’ ‘Life Goes On‘ and ‘Martyrial Girl$.’ You can buy the song on iTunes starting at midnight, Tuesday morning.
