"I know that later on in my life I'll have my time to be at home, but right now I love being on the road and playing shows every night," he explained.
"It's my favorite thing in the world." His loved ones, on the other hand, may have a harder time seeing the singer leave for such an extended period of time.
Cabrera has starred in a concert film, Live at the Wiltern, with him performing songs from his album Take It All Away.
Cabrera's second album, You Stand Watching, was released on September 20, 2005, and it included his singles "Shine On" and "Photo".
The singer, who has spent the bulk of the last two years touring the globe, says he rarely gets homesick.
Cabrera began as a lead singer for the Dallas band Rubix Groove before pursuing his solo career.
Following the 2001 release of independent album Elm St., he released his first major-label album, Take It All Away, on August 17, 2004.
Cabrera penned the thoughtful track last year after he came across a picture of an old flame that reignited some past emotions.
And while the singer admits that all his songs stem from personal experiences, don't automatically assume that they're all about his famous ex (see "Ryan Cabrera's Love-Song LP Isn't All About Ashlee").
