"A Home" as written by Philipp Andreas Maier, Alexander Schwarz, Sebastian Schwarz and Daniel Eisenlohr....
I mistook the warnings for wisdom
From so called friends quick to advise
Though your touch was telling me otherwise

Somehow I saw you as a weakness
I thought I had to be strong
Oh but I was just young
I was scared, I was wrong

Not a night goes by, I don't dream of wandering
Through the home that might have been
I listened to my pride when my heart cried out for you
Now every day I wake again
In a house that might have been a home

Guess I did what I did believing
That love is a dangerous thing
Oh but that couldn't hurt anymore
Than never knowing

Not a night goes by, I don't dream of wandering
Through the home that might have been
I listened to my pride when my heart cried out for you
Now every day I wake again
In a house that might have been a home, a home

Four walls, a roof, a door, some windows
Just a place to run when my working day is through
They say home is where the heart is
If the exception proves the rule I guess that's true

Not a night goes by, I don't dream of wandering
Through the home that might have been
I listened to my pride when my heart cried out for you
Now every day I wake again
In a house that might have been a home, a home

    General CommentTo me this song is about regret and how not listening to what your heart tells you will never make you happy in the end. My fav. line "somehow I saw you as a weakness. I thought I had to be strong. Oh but I was just young, I was scared, I was wrong" sums up the whole song to me because it shows the honesty and vonerability of a person when they let someone that they love slip away. Great song.

    General CommentIt's all about how someone ended a relationship, but looking back, she felt she shouldn't have or maybe she should have acted differently. Martie, the fiddler, said this song is very close to her, and reminds her of her break-up with her first husband.
