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 YOU 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.

    Song MeaningIn my opinion, it's simple: it's about death, aka "home", though we can make songs mean what we want us to mean. I say i have to agree with Kyle saying it could be about suicide and with 1hardhabittobreak about his father (r.i.p). Many people, usually when dying or at someone's deathbed use the term "Home" as reference to eternal sleep, since visualizing or being at home tends to give us a feeling of peace. think about the lyrics, and how writers use references:

    staring out into the night (usually means deathbed); love and feeling good never cost a thing (happiness in the afterlife); my pain is a different kind of pain (not mortal, spiritual).

    And where your love has always been enough for me (probably a reference to a Higher Being, maybe Chris felt like doing a Christian song); I'm not running from. No, I think you got me all wrong. I don't regret this life I chose for me (some people often regret certain things in life to blame for mistakes).

    The miles are getting longer, it seems, The closer I get to you (probably the feeling of leaving this earth, but dying slowly); I've not always been the best man or friend for you, But your love, it makes true. (many people do not have any religious beliefs, or "fight" their deities until the very end).

    And I don't know why. You always seem to give me another try (I don't know about others, but many religions believe G-d loves you, and will always be there for you when you are ready to commit to him, and will always forgive you if you love him back.

    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. (this is very true, specially when people face some tough times, and whish they would. Well...be careful what you wish for, because you'll get it, and sometimes it is something you didn't want.)

    *Well, although I do not believe i'm correct, I do believe the meaning for this song is about dying and go to your happy place. Let me know if that's what you guys think.

    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,
