"Home Is Where Your Heart Is" as written by and Johan Bengtsson Jesper Anderberg....
There was a place in my hometown where I use to wander
Above the trees I saw a big black cloud of thunder
Summer rain in my face like snowflakes falling from space
It was so beautiful, and then I passed the mountains
I went coast to coast, and from star to star
That's how you learn, just who you are

Home is where your heart is
Find where you belong, start to take control, show a little soul
Then you feel who you are
Home is where your heart is
Find where you belong, start to take control, show a little soul
Then you feel who you are

There was a time I couldn't see myself growing older
But then I went for a walk when I came back I was so much taller
Maybe try to find something that I could be part of
But I decided to leave, and then I crossed the river
I went coast to coast, and from star to star
But that's how you learn, who you really are

Home is where your heart is
Find where you belong, start to take control, show a little soul
Then you feel who you are
Home is where your heart is
But I leave you with a kiss, there's so much more than this
When you know who you are

Oh, what you know, stop to think
Start to feel, and then you'll heal
You got to rise to the occasion, you got to read between the lines
Then maybe you'll find, who you are inside
When I look into your eyes, I feel what you feel
Come take my hand, let's go for a swim

Home is where your heart is
Find where you belong, start to take control, show a little soul
Then you feel who you are
Home is where your heart is
But I leave you with a kiss, there's so much more than this
When you know who you are

    i glad i know i'm not the only one who likes to take walks!

    i love how dying to say this to you was an album of oppressed emotion (sad, mad, or happy emotion). and then with this album in general it's like "ok, this happened- i'm going to live and grow up about it."

    "Start to feel, and then you'll heal
    You got to rise to the occasion, you got to read between the lines"
    i was listening to this song during class today (we really weren't doing anything), and i was thinking of how much the other people were missing out on from NOT listening to the sounds.

    General CommentI can relate to this song so much, they're from the town I was born and raised in,
    I don't live there anymore but whenever I go back to my parents house, I wander the streets and I have this weird feeling that this is not my home anymore, that i don't really have a home where i can put my things so my home is where my heart is.
    It's like Maja is saying you have to see other places and do things to really appriciate your life and see how much you changed and things around you changes.
    she's saying, I love this town but I love touring and seeing new places and where ever my heart is is my home, well it's pretty self-explained.
