I'm staring out into the night
Trying to hide the pain
I'm going to the place where love
And feeling good don't ever cost a thing
And the pain you feel is a different kind of pain

I'm going home
Back to the place where I belong
And where your love has always been enough for me
I'm not running from
No, I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old
So I'm going home
Well, I'm going home

The miles are getting longer it seems
The closer I get to you
I've not always been the best man or friend for you
But your love remains true
And I don't know why
You always seem to give me another try

So I'm going home
Back to the place where I belong
And where your love has always been enough for me
I'm not running from
No, I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it all
You just might get it all
And then some you don't want
Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it all
You just might get it all, yeah

Oh, well I'm going home
Back to the place where I belong
And where your love has always been enough for me
I'm not running from
No, I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old
I said these places and these faces are getting old
So I'm going home, I'm going home

    General CommentI loved this album before I figured out that Daughtry is led by the American Idol singer Chris Daughtry. ( I THOUGHT his face looked familiar!) Something about his voice is enveloping and comforting... Some of his songs would make great background music for movie/TV scenes or trailers.
    This song sounds to me like a guy who got out of his hometown, got away from something he felt was worth leaving behind, and his new life didn't turn out to be as successful as he'd hoped. Now, he's going home to where his girl's love has become enough. (Why wasn't it before? Is love/sex/marriage enough to really give up all other dreams?) He has pain, but is it b/c of failure or having to return home in a bit of guilt for actually leaving? I guess it doesn't truly matter b/c he's going home, and that's all that matters.
