Coming Home

The first  time I ever heard this song was in the movie “Country Strong.”  I teared up and I was moved beyond words!  At the time I did not have a place to call home so the words conjured up memories of a place that I had once had that I called home.  It brought to mind the times that I felt loved and sheltered and there was always a welcoming and warm atmosphere in the house where I grew up as a child.

Not everyone has a place that they can call home.  When you have moved around as much as I have and have felt the pangs of loneliness and the heartbreak of homelessness it means the world to you when you finally do find that place that you feel comfortable enough to call home.

Coming Home

It’s a four letter word
A place you go to heal your hurt
It’s an altar, it’s a shelter
One place you’re always welcome
A pink flamingo, double wide
One bedroom in a high rise
A mansion on a hill
Where the memories always will
Keep you company whenever you’re alone
After all of my running
I’m finally coming

Home – the world tried to break me
I found a road to take me
Home – there ain’t nothing but a blue sky now
After all of my running,
I’m finally coming… Home

Well they say it’s where the heart is
And I guess the hardest part is
When your heart is broken
And you’re lost out in the great wide open
Looking for a map
For finding your way back
To where you belong
Oh well that’s where I belong

Home – the world tried to break me
I found a road to take me
Home – there ain’t nothing but a blue sky now
After all of my running
I’m finally coming… Home

Home

Home – the world tried to break me
I found a road to take me
Home – there ain’t nothing but a blue sky now
After all of my running, I’m finally coming…
After all of my running
I’m finally coming… Home

It’s a four letter word

Where the memories always will
Keep you company whenever you’re alone
After all of my running

After all of my running, I’m finally coming…
After all of my running
I’m finally coming… Home
