Song Lyric Sunday – Home by Michael Buble

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never really considered a building my home.  My childhood home only offers pretty terrible memories, and the home I established when my kids were younger fell apart pretty quickly.

I ended up finding a home at my sister’s house part time and finding comfort in the moments I spent with my children.  I had to let go of the idea that the four walls I spent time in was my “home”, though.  My home became where my love was – my children, my best friend, and my lover, but not necessarily the four walls surrounding me.

It’s weird to think that my “home” might be something completely different in a few weeks; although, I’m not opposed to the idea.  Many people consider the building they live in as their home… I’m just hoping that can happen with me, since I’ve been so used to people as my home and not necessarily the roof over my head.

This all leads me to my pick this week.  It seems to me that Michael Buble is referring to a person when he speaks of his “home” in this song.  He doesn’t so much sing of four walls, as he sings of missing someone he loves.  That’s how I feel about home, and that’s why I picked this song for this week’s theme.

I hope you enjoy Michael Buble as much as I do.  He has been a long time favorite of mine.

Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it’s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aeroplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky, I know
But I wanna go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
This was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
In either Paris or Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
And let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It’ll all be all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

  1. Love him. Proud to be Canadian with him as one of our national singing gifts. I just touched on home in my previous blog post for SoCS because I am in the process of writing an essay for publication about home. I would love to participate in this week’s Song Lyric Sunday if I can come up with one. It’s an excellent topic, so not sure why an idea hasn’t come to me yet. Guess we’ll see.
