Coming Home Lyrics

{Skylar Grey}
I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Tell the World I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Tell the World that...

    This is a song about reconciliation. Written for P. Diddy in commemoration for the death of Biggie. There are allusions to his death: "you know you would've took the bullet if you saw it" and "I miss you BIG."
    The song is about the confusion in life and the need to "get back to the place where I belong." The song is about reconciling with "the pain of yesterday," because life goes on "another night the inevitable prolong, another day another dawn." One must accept the inability to change what's happened and recognize the only option is to "deal with it."
    Ultimately, this song is a broad appeal to anyone who struggles to accept and reconcile with past mistakes and experiences.

    I don't really know what diddy's part is talking about but I think the girl's part in the song is talking about her going home to heaven. "Wash away the pain of yesterday" Talking about all the pain in their life/past, and the rain would be symbolizing the sadness of everyone because of the death. "my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes" Heaven being the kingdom and the mistakes being all the sins that person has ya know sinned. And if you read Diddy's part after reading my interpretation of the chorus (girls part) it kinda makes sense that hes talking about heaven too and "going home"

    Every keeps saying 'Christian song this' and 'Christian music that.' I challenge every single one of you to walk up to a piano and press down a key. Then press down another one. I ask you, what makes the first note any more Christian than the second? Think about it. It's not the song or the music that is Christian, it's the singer.

    I disagree with the person who said that the song refers to the devil coming and taking control of the world. Satan has already seriously wounded us, whether we know it or not! Since the Fall, when Adam and Eve were tempted, the world has been full of sin. But still, we know that God is our Rock, our ever present help in times of trouble. He will never let us go.

    "And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever." Revelation 20:7-10 (NIV)

    I know it sounds kind of, well, mean, but God isn't playing around. He loves us more than we could ever imagine! He sent his son to die for us!

    "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 (NIV)

    I know almost nothing about Dirty Money, and I also know that not everyone really believes what they say they believe. Only God knows the hearts of Diddy, Dawn, and Kaleena. It's not our place to judge them. I understand why someone might want to know the lyrics to determine whether it's music that they actually want to be listening to, but we can't judge them.

    "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Matthew 7:1-2 (NIV)

    To everyone out there I truly believe that God sent his son for us, TO DIE A HORRIBLE, PAINFUL, DEATH ON A CROSS, because he loves us. Jesus died for you, Diddy, Kaleena, Dawn, your family, your friends, your enemies, everyone, taking all our sin upon himself, so we could be freed from sin's hold. And he didn't just die. Oh no! He rose again after three days! He defeated sin, he defeated death, and for crying out loud, he defeated hell!

    "Behold, I am coming soon!" Revelation 22:12 (NIV)

    Jesus didn't just die and rise again, but my friends he is coming back again!!!

    Personally, I believe that this song is about someone (Dirty Money) physically coming home and going back to their old roots, after losing touch with their family, and their true selves, due to fame and riches. For instance, the lyric, “Is a house really a home when your loved ones is gone,” insinuates that hasn’t seen or spoken to his family in a while, and his house is solemn and lonely without them. Another example is the lyrics, These old blocks is what made me, save me, drove me crazy. Drove me away then embraced me for days.” These lyrics are stating that where he came from made him as a person, as well as broke him as a person. Where he grew up drove him away and to fame, but he will always love them. Dirty Money has decided to come home and reconnect with his family, because at the end of the day family and love is stronger than any mansion, amount of money, or fame. This song should be taken as a lesson to all. Pick up the phone, and call your loved ones. Your money isn’t going anywhere, but the people you adore won’t be around forever.

    It sounds like suicide to me. The blood beneath my nails-could be she kills herself....my kingdom i think of heaven. Mistakes-sin. This song is really deep though it is sung very softly.
    OR it could be about the "prodigal child." Metaphorically she was lost and now coming "home" which would mean she is returning to Christ. She "ran away" from her problems by guilt but now knows she is forgiven and is coming home to the One who forgave her.

    I think that it’s about how you got lost along the way of life and you lost the place and people that made you feel safe and a place that you could go to but you lost it because of all the mistakes you made. So everyone is forgiving you and you are pushing through cause what else can you do and your finally finding your place and going home. You can’t hold on to the past even if it is haunting you, you just gotta get through it.

    She's talking about the kingdom of heaven where all her mistakes or sins are forgiven. Because of our father in heaven through our savior jesus christ.

    I partially agree with the second interpretation. About Heaven.
    I see how the male part says "Tears of a Clown. I hate that song. I always feel like they talkin' to me when it comes on." I looked up the lyrics. Basically, I may seem happy but I'm really sad and I miss you. I actually fantasize a thing where my OC (Original Character) - Who represents me and basically is me, her soul splits into all my OCs and goes to different universes where the specific OCs belonged to. As different songs play in the background, my main OC's best friends go through the universes to find the other OCs and bring them to the basically lifeless husk and restore pieces of my OC's soul. Eventually, all my souls are put into my main one's body. Even though OCs are all there, there's something missing. Me. My soul is her soul. I don't really belong to this world. One more portal opens up. One song called "Don't let me down" plays during the transition between worlds. Then this song plays as they bring me to where I belong. I'm Coming home. I'm coming home. Tell the world I'm coming home. Let the rain Wash away All the pain of yesterday. I know my kingdom awaits. And they've forgiven my mistakes. I'm coming home. I'm coming home.
    I don't belong here. This world is not for me. Let those I miss and those who miss me eventually come to terms with my new found happiness. My true world awaits me. And they've forgiven me for all I've done in my past. I'm finally retreating to where I truly belong. I'm finally happy.

    ...I know I sound crazy and sad, but it's true. this world sucks so much and I'm not even at the time in my life where it's the hardest.

    H-h-he-e-elp meeee - get out of here.

    I think that it's about how some people feel like there is no hope in the world left for them just because they've made mistakes in life. They just want to find a place where they can be accepted for who they are and not be judged. They have a need to find this place where they can call their home.

    I think its all in the eyes of the beholder that is the beautiful thing about music everyone can get what they need from it. To me I feel connected to my lord

    To me, it doesn't seem like it's religious at all. It just sounds like a man who's made a lot of mistakes and regrets them and just wants to come home to his family.

    I think this song is about finding people who care about you and make you feel good. When it says "Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday" it means exactly what it says: let the rain wash away the pain and sorrow of the past. When it says "I know my kingdom awaits, and they've forgiven my mistakes" the kingdom is really the group of her friends and family, and they've forgiven her mistakes. That's just what I think.

    Really? You guys don't think this is Christian?

    "Thank you lord, thank you all!"
    Doesn't ring any bells for you?

    Perhaps returning to a place where you belong with no judgment?

    To all saying it is a Christian song, you are very wrong. The song is actually about all his mistakes in life and all of his losses. He makes a reference to his close friend "the notorious BIG". it is truly a deep song about his life, but it is most definitely not christian

    This is no christian song,those saying so are just finding an excuse to listen to it.this song is about his life and how he is struggling to deal with his past and present,its so clear and not complicated.any way, its what it means to the individual that matters.

    Actually, everyone is wrong about this song. What it's really about is her coming home from jail. She made a mistake so when they forgive her for that mistake, so they released her and so she's coming back to where she came from. I know this because she recorded this in my dads studio and she said that this is why she wrote the song.
