"Home" as written by and Lisa Margaret Hannigan Gavin Glass....
Home
So far from home
So far to go
And we've only just begun
And oh
Every lie we told
Is written in stone
Every lie we wrote in our bones

And hold on
There's nothing to pack
Oh, we know
We're not coming back

Ohh

And oh
Every promise that we broke
Is sewn to our clothes
Now we are pinned to the wind
I suppose

And oh
Every fallen flake of snow
I still give in
Oh, but we spin and we spin and we spin

And hold on
There's nothing to pack
Lay your heart out
We're not coming back

Ohh

Hold on
There's nothing to pack
Lay your heart out
We're not coming back
We're not coming back

    General CommentVery powerful song. She said she wrote most (if not all) the songs for Passenger on tour, hence the name of the album, especially Passenger's lyrics, Home's lyrics, and others. Quite obviously about how they left home, but even then they still carry everything with them, promises broken, lies told (something we hear in the next song, A Sail). The snow flake metaphor is quite something... how we "spin and we spin and we spin".

    Can also see her mentioning of
