"Home" as written by P. B. Lianmawia, H. S. Lalruatliana, Rosangliana, and Joshua Zoramliana....
"Rolling down the road, going nowhere,
Guitar packed in a trunk
Somewhere around mile marker 1-12,
Papa started hummin' the funk
I gotta jones in my bones before they know,
We were singing this melody
Stop the car pulled out the guitar,
Halfway to New Orleans

Said take me home
Take me home

Could feel the sun about to rise,
When I realized we had nothing to fear
It's just me and my daddy and a kid named Cope,
Making music that nobody would hear
And then the sun let up and it split the night,
Spillin' over our jubilee
Ten thousand cars by the side of the road,
Groovin' far as the eye can see

Said take me home
Take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home

This Greyhound is delta bound mama,
Baby boy finally found,
Said this Greyhound is delta bound mama,
Baby boy done finally found his way home
Said take me home

Here we go,
Hot damn you should have felt the groove,
Like I was swimming in a sea of soul
The sun was rising and the day was hot,
And we was all about to lose control
My daddy turned his face up towards the sky,
And I knew that there was nothing to lose
I felt the crowd breathe in and I closed my eyes,
And we disappeared into the groove

Said take me home
Said take me home
Take me home
Said take me home

Straight from the water
Straight from the water, children
Straight from the water
Straight from the water, children
Straight from the water
Straight from the water, children
Straight from the water
You don't know nothin' about this

Take me home
Said take me home

Said take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home
take me home
Said take me home
Said take me home

    General CommentSongs like this don't come around too often.

    Broussard sings 'Home' with a sensationally soulful voice that's not often heard these days - and it's even more amazing after finding out the singer is little-known white kid in his early 20s. His performance gives the impression that he has experience beyond his years, and shows that he has the ability to tell a great story through lyrics. Add that to the combination of soul, rock, blues, spirituals, and essences of many other styles and you have a song that truly unique in today's music scene - and one that's absolutely fantastic.

    Most musicians feel lucky to create one song of this quality in their entire career - Marc's done it on his second album.


    I first heard this song when Marc performed it on Late Night with Conan O' Brien, and I've been playing it on repeat ever since.

    General CommentAn interesting tidbit. The "straight from the water" part of 'Home' seems to be derived from a slave spiritual (I think it may have been used in the Underground Railroad) with similar rhythm and melody. The spiritual went:

    Wade in the water
    Wade in the water, children
    Wade in the water
    God's gonna trouble the water

    The first three lines of the spiritual are very similar to the "Straight from the water" sung in 'Home."

    Just thought this was interesting.

    General CommentFuck...this song is blasted all across one of the rock stations in my hometown like it's the new song by Christina Agulie...I can't fucking spell that bitch's last name...new song or something, and nobody comments on this. Well, it's under the radar and I hope it stays that way. By the way, best percussion beats of 2005 right here. Suck that, drum machine people!

    General Commenti'm the opposite opinion, it seems most bands that go under the radar don't get to good of a lifespan in the music industry, so i hope that something from the album hits so we can here more from the guy. And drum machines suck, they were developed for a bunch of talentless people who cant even sing so decided to feed off peoples ignorance and make rap instead :)

    General CommentDistinctive, soulful, amazing. The beat, the words, the voice make the adrenaline pump. The video is incredible.

    General CommentBoy named Cope.... did he mean Citizen Cope? Anyone know?

    General CommentHe is definitely referring to Citizen Cope in the line, "It's just me and my daddy and a kid named Cope". He and Cope toured together back in 2005. I'd really like to know how far back they go. I love both artist music, two of my favorites.
