I'm staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I'm going to the place where love
And feeling good don't ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain.

Well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
Well I'm going home.

The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I've not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love, it makes true.
And I don't know why.
You always seem to give me another try.

So I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,

Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don't want.
Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.

Oh, well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
I'm going home.

    General CommentIt sounds like a guy who's mother doesn't approve of his career (maybe as a musician who travels a lot). His mother knows that eventually he's going to get tired of traveling around and he's just going to want to come back home. Now he's coming home, but he's too stubborn to acknowledge that his mother was right so he just says that "these faces and places were getting old"

    I'm not running from.
    No, I think you got me all wrong.
    I don't regret this life I chose for me.
    But these places and these faces are getting old,

    General CommentI agree with armywifey [btw, I have the most ultimate respect for you and your husband]. But I think this song is about being away from someone you love, and finally being able to go back and reunite with the life you had before. It's about the relief you feel when you can finally go back home to what you'll always know. You're happy and proud of the experience and the choice, but you just miss your old life, and the people who love you/you love.
