"Only Place I Call Home" as written by and Michael Joseph/deeghan Govaere....
Leaving your tears on my shoulder
Your eyes beg me to stay.
We were finally changing.
It's our luck, we're a little too late.
I'd take you with me if there was a way.
Sorry, don't cut it so I say,

Take all of your doubts,
You can throw 'em out.
You may be unsure, but I know
I'm always coming back.
You can bet on that,
You're the only place I call home.
Near or far, where you are is where I want to be.
Every lonely night,
Every drunken fight,
Gonna make it right, I know.
If it hurts you bad,
Put it on my tab,
I can pay it back tenfold.
You're the only place I've ever called my home.

Years pass, we're getting older
And you're not sure you can wait.
So I promise, it won't always be like this.
You say, "It's always the same."
We're falling apart if you think so
I'm holding on even if you let go.

Take all of your doubts,
You can throw 'em out.
You may be unsure, but I know
I'm always coming back.
You can bet on that,
You're the only place I call home.
Near or far, where you are is where I want to be.
Every lonely night,
Every drunken fight,
Gonna make it right, I know.
If it hurts you bad,
Put it on my tab,
I can pay it back tenfold.
You're the only place I've ever called my home.

If I had my way
You'd fill these empty beds.
Someday I'll come back for you
And never leave again.

Take all of your doubts,
You can throw 'em out.
You may be unsure, but I know
I'm always coming back.
You can bet on that,
You're the only place I call home.
Near or far, where you are is where I want to be.
Every lonely night,
Every drunken fight,
Gonna make it right, I know.
If it hurts you bad,
Put it on my tab,
I can pay it back tenfold.
You're the only place I've ever called my home.

    My InterpretationI think a lot of the songs on this album have a lot to do with how leaving and being away from loved ones to be on the road affects the band personally. Obviously the person he's leaving behind is skeptical about whether he will really be coming back. It sounds like she has gotten used to him being on the road and away at shows, so she's not really expecting anything to change. But basically he's telling her that being with her is where he feels most comfortable and that he isn't going to give up on the relationship, even if she does. Everything he does is for her, and one day he will come home to her and never leave her again.
