"Almost Home" as written by Beth Nielsen Chapman, Annie Leslie Roboff and Mary Chapin Carpenter....
I saw my life this morning
Lying at the bottom of a drawer
All this stuff I'm saving
God knows what this junk is for
And whatever I believed in
This is all I have to show
What the hell were all reasons
For holding on for such dear life
Here's where I let go

I'm not running
I'm not hiding
I'm not reaching
I'm just resting in the arms of the great wide open
Gonna pull my soul in
And I'm almost home

I saw you this morning
You were looking straight at me
From an ancient photograph
Stuck between letters and some keys
I was lost just for a moment
In the ache of old goodbyes
Sometimes all that we can know is
There's no such thing as no regrets
Baby it's all right

I'm not running
I'm not hiding
I'm not reaching
I'm just resting in the arms of the great wide open
Gonna pull my soul in
And I'm almost home
There's no such thing as no regrets
But baby it's alright
I'm not running
I'm not hiding
I'm not reaching
I'm just resting in the arms of the great wide open
Gonna pull my soul in
And I'm almost home

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone who is on the cusp of reaching an important life changing goal, such as sending a kid off to college, marrying a child off or even leaving a broken relationship as she alludes to. Of course, everyone has regrets along the way but in the end, you'll achieve your goals if you let yourself reach for them.

    I'm just resting in the arms of the great wide open
    Gonna pull my soul in
    And I'm almost home

    Good stuff.
