"Homeless Heart" as written by Harry Mikael Sommerdahl, Andreas Michael Carlsson and Desmond Child....
Lonesome stranger
With a crowd around you
I see who you are

You joke, they laugh
Till the show is over
Then you fall so hard

If you're needing a soul to a soul connection
Shattered like a mirror in a million pieces
I'll run to your side

When you're lost in the dark
When you're out in the cold
When you're looking for something that resembles your soul
When the wind blows your house of cards
I'll be your home to your homeless heart

Open, close me
Leave your secrets with me
I can ease your pain

And my arms will be
Just like walls around you
Come in from the rain

If you're running in a wrong direction
I will lead you back

When you're lost in the dark
When you're out in the cold
When you're looking for something that resembles your soul
When the wind blows your house of cards
I'll be your home
To your homeless heart

Broken
Shattered like a million, million pieces
Sooner or later, you've got to find
Something, someone to find you and save you

When you're lost in the dark
When you're out in the cold
When you're looking for something that resembles your soul
When the wind blows your house of cards
I'll be your home to your homeless heart

When you're looking
For something that resembles your soul
When the wind blows your house of cards
I'll be your home to your homeless heart

I'll be your home
To your homeless heart

    My InterpretationHomeless Heart is one of the most underrated songs in history. I have such a softspot for this song because I know the perfect situation to apply this to.

    Homeless Heart is about two people. One person who appears so confident and self-assured about who they are in front of the world and another who can see right past the other person's acts. The one person is secretly alone and does not know where they belong but doesn't let anyone know that about them. The other person (possibly a lover) can sense the pain they go/have been through and wants that person to know that they can always go and seek solice to them.

    The guy who I really like has moved to several countries for his whole life and appears so outgoing and free, like nothing in the world matters. But the truth is that he is reluctant to have close relationships due to moving around and is afraid of being alone. I've moved to another country for some time and know of kids like my guy, who never stay in one place and always leave. In my heart, I feel like I am one of the closest to understanding his loneliness and want him to know that I will always be there for him and care about him when he feels so alone. I'll shelter his homeless heart.

    General CommentEhhh.....I have no clue why I'm posting here. I'm into alternative rock music. Oh well, I would probably hate this song because of its sweetness and prettiness. Hey, if you ever want to get into rock music, listen to Pearl Jam. They're the best band out today.
