Times have changed and times are strange
Here I come, but I ain't the same
Mama, I'm coming home
Times gone by seems to be
You could have been a better friend to me
Mama, I'm coming home

You took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized, yeah
Lost and found and turned around
By the fire in your eyes

You made me cry, you told me lies
But, I can't stand to say goodbye
Mama, I'm coming home
I could be right, I could be wrong
It hurts so bad and it's been so long
Mama, I'm coming home

Selfish love, yeah, we're both alone
The ride before the fall, yeah
But I'm gonna take this heart of stone
I just got to have it all

I've seen your face a hundred times
Everyday we've been apart
I don't care about the sunshine, yeah

'Cause mama, mama, I'm coming home
I'm coming home

You took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized, yeah
Lost and found and turned around
By the fire in your eyes

I've seen your face a thousand times
Every day we've been apart
And I don't care about the sunshine, yeah

'Cause mama, mama, I'm coming home
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
I'm coming home

    General CommentI don't normally write on these things,
    but since it was all seeming a little unresolved still, I thought I'd take a shot at it...

    I checked out songfacts.com/… with their meaning on the song, since it says "facts", I thought maybe they know a few things (don't mean it rude, I honestly mean "think", I believe they've been wrong a few times about some small details, but generally have good ideas, anyways)...

    They said, yes, that it was written about Sharon. But, I do find it interesting to note that they they felt to mention about how she was the incentive for him to come off of the drugs and, how, if he hadn't gotten sober then they said "he probably would have died"... And since others have mentioned another interview in which Ozzy mentioned that it was about him coming off of drugs and coming to his wife, then I'm inclined to believe them... You know, it doesn't have to be all or nothing... Maybe it can mean both? :) For a matter of peacekeeping's sake?

    Anyways, I really like the double- meaning idea, where he's talking about getting clean and coming home to his wife and about his relationship with his wife at the same time. Since he didn't fully write the song himself, then I say that, if I was the creative one behind this song then I would have been creating a bit of double meaning, without care for reader interpretation. Always having a little bit of question in one's head, keeps one interested (in the artist and the song, I say...).

    I have to do another one of those "if Ozzy's reading" kinda things and say, I LOVE that song, what a beautiful voice, it's such a WILD song as they all are, I love expecting the unpredictable...
