"Home" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
I woke up this morning and now I understand
What it means to give your life to just one man
Afraid of feeling nothing, no bees or butterflies
My head is full of voices and my house is full of lies

This is home, home
And this is home, home
This is home

I saw him standing there when I was seventeen
Now I'm thirty-two and I can't remember what I'd seen in you
When I made a promise, said it everyday
Now I'm reading romance novels and I'm dreaming of yesterday

This is home, home
And this is home and this is home
This is home

I'd like to see The Riviera
And slow dance underneath the stars
I'd like to watch the sun come up
In a stranger's arms

And this is home, home
And this is home, home
Home, home

I'm going crazy a little every day
And everything I wanted is now driving me away
I woke this morning to the sound of breaking hearts
Mine is full of questions and it's tearing yours apart, tearing yours apart
And it's tearing yours apart, it's tearing yours apart
And it's tearing us apart

    General CommentI was under the impression this song was written shortly after her boyfriend/partner/keyboardist for the smashing pumpkins died. I wonder if this song is about him.

    General CommentThis song reminds describes exactly how I felt in the last part of my last relationship...I was with the guy from the time I was 14 until 21 - 6 years - and towards the end of it I just felt like I was not in love with him anymore, like there was no spark, like we were just best friends and I felt trapped and missing the excitement of sparks between two people in the beginning of a romantic relationship. This song is a beautiful and amazing work...I listened to it a lot this past year for obvious reasons.

    General CommentMost definitely a song about the perplexities of marrying young. Sometimes, something "happens"--such as a betrayal of trust or some sort of an awakening or uncoupling. She is guilty, yet curious. "Afraid of feeling nothing, no bees or butterflies". Home is comfort and all she's known. Home is also her trap. "My heart is full of questions and it's tearing yours apart". Do you leave Home for the unknown or do you stay knowing all of it's imperfections and constraints?

    My InterpretationHome seems to represent a feeling of comfort that she once found in a love. Now the love has dissipated but she still calls it home. She feels like she invested her entire life and being into a single person, and now that the relationship is deteriorating, she feels like she is. She yearns for the thrill or lust of a new romance. Her preferences have changed and she's questioning the relationship and can see how much it hurts her partner.
