Tell me why
My mind is moving to places I never thought it'd go.
Welcome home,
I see new faces, but faces are all I really know.

[PRE-CHORUS]
Maybe I'll find a way out of here,
Darling, my dear.
Maybe I'll find home away from home.
Will I ever know?
I can see it...

[CHORUS]
Does it feel like home?
(Does it feel like, feel like, home?)
Does it feel like home?
Will I ever know when it feels like home?

Said, "I don't know...
Where I lost her, darling said she'd never leave."
She's crawling up
The stairs, I can hear her,
She's calling my name and it kills!

[PRE-CHORUS into CHORUS]

Woh-oh (x10)

Does it feel like home,
Does it feel like, feel like home,
Come on let me know!
Come on let me know!

[CHORUS x1]

Welcome home!

    General CommentNo idea... What is the song about? Vague thoughts that maybe it's about a guy assessing his relationship with a girl. If it feels like home, if it feels like it's the right place to be. Maybe, the beginning... "Tell me why my mind is moving to places I never thought it'd go..." Maybe he's fantasizing about his girl and he knows it's wrong. I have no idea. Any help here???

    General Commentthis is a pretty vague song IMO, but what I got from it kinda goes along the lines of boy and girl together at one time and it "felt like home", it was just right. now it's over and home is no longer home because she is no longer there, in fact, home is torturous because he can hear her calling his name despite her being gone. he wants to find solitude and comfort somewhere else, possibly with someone else, but in reality he just assume she come back home to him ........ that's the best i got

    General CommentFirst off, Jonezetta rocks, besides that... I think this song is about a girl that he really likes but she is with him off and on and he is wondering if she will ever stay. She is unsure of the relationship. But thats just my thoughts, thats what I love about this band, they leave it open...

    General CommentI love jonezetta. Best live show of EVER.
    and they're just as awesome on CD.
    good lyrics without sounding overbearingly deep....
    but at the same time catchy without sounding meaningless...
    I do love Jonezetta.
    I'm ready for them to come play back home. :(

    General Commenti don't think this song is about a relationship, but that's just me. i see it like there's a person who strayed away from home, isn't in with his family, maybe is close with his siblings and it's starting to take a toll on him. in my own experience, the person straying from home would be involved heavily with alcohol and feeling hopeless.
    Tell me why
    My mind is moving to places I never thought it'd go.
    Welcome home,
    I see new faces, but faces are all I really know.

    [PRE-CHORUS]
    Maybe I'll find a way out of here,
    Darling, my dear.
    Maybe I'll find home away from home.
    Will I ever know?
    I can see it...

    i think the beginning of that is when he is realizing that he's on the wrong path and he isn't understanding what is up.

    Does it feel like home?
    (Does it feel like, feel like, home?)
    Does it feel like home?
    Will I ever know when it feels like home?

    i feel like he went home but it wasn't the same because of what he did to his family emotionally because of his choices. he's broken them down and it's just not the same to be at home because there is the undercurrent of his alcoholism.

    Said, "I don't know...
    Where I lost her, darling said she'd never leave."
    She's crawling up
    The stairs, I can hear her,
    She's calling my name and it kills!

    i think the speaker may be the sibling of the person who strayed away. and now the sibling is really seeing the person in his element of alcohol and seeing the affects on him (or maybe her, in this song). the sibling said she'd never leave (home, the family) but the sibling doesn't know where things went wrong. now the sibling sees his/her sibling while drunk or w/e and shes literally crawling up the stairs calling her name, maybe in anger, maybe in sorrow.

    i could be analyzing this too much. but i've experienced this type of thing first hand and it really fits here. i feel like jonezetta is more intelligent than to write a vague song about a relationship.

    General Commenti think it's about a relationship, "does it feel like home?" Maybe he's unsure about the girl? Or something, i don't know! I like this though.

    Or he's finally came home after a while and everythings different than when he was last there.

    General CommentOkay I could totally be wrong lol
    but I kinda thought it was about someone who lost their memory. Where he says I see new faces but the faces are all I know .
    And like the chorus does it feel like home will it ever feel like home ,, is like asking will things go back to normal and will it ever feel like home again. But eh idk
