Another summer day
Has come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I wanna go home, mmm

May be surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
Just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

And I've been keeping all the letters
That I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
I'm fine baby, how are you?

Well I would send them but I know
That it's just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another airplane
Another sunny place
I'm lucky I know
But I wanna go home
Mmm, I got to go home

Let me go home
I'm just too far
From where you are
I wanna come home

And I feel just like
I'm living someone else's life
It's like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right

And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
That this was not your dream
But you always believed in me

Another winter day
Has come and gone away
In even Paris and Rome
And I wanna go home
Let me go home

And I'm surrounded by
A million people I
I still feel alone
Oh, let me go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I've had my run
Baby, I'm done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It'll all be all right
I'll be home tonight
I'm coming back home

    Beautiful lyrics with such a wonderful voice to back them up.He's singing of nostalgia for a lost love - going separate ways - and finding their way back to each other in the end. A classic love story I suppose. :)

    Simply fabulous... this is exactly me, over in Europe, while my boy is back in Canada. I've been here since September and I'm ready to go home now.

    This song just screams out to people in long distance relationships. I've always imagined MB writing this song while on tour and missing his beau. He knows it was his dream to be a singer and that he should appreciate the different cities he gets to experience -- but sometimes he just wants to go home and be with his friends and family.

    Maybe it is about a person who is stuck in a relationship that never what all that he/she dreamed of. Home is this person that he or she loves, but didn't dare to go for. Home could also be about finding back to yourself, the dreams you always carried with you, which is the home of his/her soul. If you're not in contact with you're soul, you are not home anywhere.

    Song Meaning

    The song was actually written for Michael's long-time ex-girlfriend. He's said so in a bunch of interviews and stuff. Basically it's him telling her that he misses her, but he understands why she can't/won't go with him on his tour. And that he'll be back as soon as he can. They broke up later anyway, which was when he wrote "Lost".

    Lyric Correction

    My boyfriend broke up with me about a week ago, due to being kind of lost in his life at the moment. We've talked every day since, we're still like best friends. He sent this song to me today, and I cried. He still cares about me and wants to come back but he's pretty confused. The last week has been rough on both of us due to the breakup, but this song is making things seem okay<3

    My Interpretation

    see to me this isn't just nostalgia for his hometown. it could be more general, like i wanna come back to the place where i felt comforted, felt safe. that's ususally what keeps drwaing me back to this beautiful beautiful song.

    To me this song can be interpreted in two ways.

    A musician on tour. If you've ever seen the music video shot for this it is just footage of Michael on tour which could explain the whole long distance relationship thing.

    It could also be interpreted as a soldier's song home. A lot of soldiers from the earlier times never sent their letters back, they just kept them (reason I don't know) and soldiers travel a lot to different countries... I don't know.

    I am just guessing.
