No Place Like Home

Many people regard the house they grew up in as "home". And so it remains for awhile, but after both parents pass on, the heart and soul of it is gone. The same may be true when you lose a spouse and the place that you belonged to is now an empty shell.

 

And this was home
The place where I became
What I am today
The place you couldn’t stay

And this was home
They say you can’t go back
The colors run to black
And now I know

There’s no place like home
Not in this world
Not anymore
There’s no place like home
No bridge left to burn
No return
Now you’re gone
There’s no place like home

And this was home
The harsh doorway light
The uncertain nights
With no dawn in sight

And this was home
I hear your refrain
The echoes remain
But now I know

There’s no place like home
Not in this world
Not anymore
There’s no place like home
No bridge left to burn
No return
Now you’re gone
There’s no place like home

There is a hope within
That we may meet again
But who can say if that will be?

There’s no place like home
Not in this world
Not anymore
There’s no place like home
No bridge left to burn
No return
Now you’re gone
There’s no place like home
