"Home" as written by Elena Jane Goulding and Fr�d�rick Falke....
Lonely thoughts,
They seep into mind, into me
Brush your teeth
Wash the dirt,
A hard days work, know my place

On my own
No poison in my bones
On my own
This is where I build my home

My home
This will always be my home
This will always be my home

I work until its late
Will again close the gates
I look in the window and I gaze on my face
Every line and every abrasion
This took my life to make
This took my life to make

On my own
No poison in my bones
On my own
This is where I build my home

I need someone to hold
I need someone to hold

On my own

My home
This will always be my home
This will always be my home

    General CommentFrom what I get from the song, she's worked so hard to get where she is and to have all the success she's gained but at the end of the day when she goes home, she's alone and has nothing to show for it. She's missed out on all the personal things in life that make it all worth it.

    My OpinionI think you are dead-on heartsrythm
    this is a really beautiful song about the loneliness of working hard but not having anyone or anything to share your happiness with

    her voice when she sings "home" <33

    General CommentYep i agree too :)

    I think it's "pushing deep" instead of "brush your teeth". It does sound like she says that but it's in the booklet lol
