You bought an one way ticket
        when you were young
You thought it'd be a good trip
You thought you'd never be homesick

Everything out there is fresh
Everything out there is sparkling
Even the moon looks bigger

All is fine
Until one day

You find the food back home was made for your stomach
the water back home tasted sweeter
the air back home suited your lung perfectly
And you starts to realize
       the moon back home were actually brighter

So you buy an one way ticket again
       to come home
There is a saying that goes: "The foreign moon looks rounder than the one does at home," in Taiwan. It''s a perfect demonstration of some kind of complex that lots of our people have, that we are,as a whole country, lack of confidence of ourselves. What caused this complex is actually complex so I won't explain it here. Sorry for the repetition.XD
