Home Lyrics

Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m gonna make this place your home

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the...

    Just go where ever your heart takes you. Thats called home. It will be a sweet sacrifice from me to you...

    Please be strong, don't give up in life. Start loving yourself more than others. Honestly, to me, you are a special person god has created. I couldn't understand myself either..

    This song is God himself talking to you. saying, "hold on to me as we go", "don't pay no mind to demons, they fill you with fear", "if you get lost you can always be found", etc. He is going to make this place our home because life takes us on all sorts of journeys, good and bad, but with God by our side, he is going to make it a welcoming and enjoyable place to be.

    The song home is basically saying that your home is anywhere as long as you have people and things you care about you can make anyplace your home.

    There are many positive interpretations but also some very negative ones. On the surface it seems positive and happy sounding but thinking about these lyrics and how many of our so called music writers and performers can sometimes be real creeps, the song could also be describing a well executed abduction of some kind. The singer could be taking the victim to a remote site too far from civilization where all kinds of abuses take place. Settle down! It could be a perv house or maybe a cult compound of some kind and the victim may know and is afraid of the coming hopelessness. Dunno but I really avoid this song completely now. Hope it just fades and is forgotten.

    I feel like this can apply to many scenarios. To some, it might feel like a message to the world inspired by God. To others, they might feel it is a message from parents to their newborn. It could be for a friends or loved one in trouble to encourage and uplift them. There are many meanings to this beautiful song.

    I think Philip is amazing guitar player and he sang so incredible but when he was at the studio and it’s fun to work with him I want to work with him and he’s talented young man he seems very nice and he likes to play the guitar I have a guitar like him and that’s very cool to write a special guy.

    The song "Home" is about a husband and wife I think. They just got married, and the wife is sad to leave the home she grew up in and loved. The husband is trying to make her understand that no matter what, he will be there for her, and as long as she's with him, she'll be safe.

    It was odd, I never thought anyone else would see God talking in this. But I have heard that since I first actually listened to the lyrics. Especially the line: "if you get lost you can always be found". This is pretty cool, too, to see other brothers and sisters hearing this ;).

    As a Jehovah Witness,this song seem to tell of enduring this current world, darkness. Only to see the garden like paradise, God always planned for mankind. As he clear out evil, and make this place our home.

    It’s about two people meeting after their divorces and navigating a new life together. It’s an unfamiliar road, especially after a very long marriage....

    Personally I believe that the song is reminiscent to someone kidnapping a person I know it's a little dark but I mean when you take the lyrics such as "if you get lost you will always be found" and "don't pay attention to the demons in your mind they will fill you with fear" kind of sounds like he's telling a person "no one's going to find you"

    According to Holden, the song is about a friend who was going through a very difficult time, and it was his way of reaching out and saying that "you know someone's here for you".

    This came from wikipedia

    I know it's 2018, and 2012 is definitely over, but this song is still great to me, even though it's short, because it has a great meaning.. that God will always be here for us, and we shouldn't give up and let "the demons" make us fearful, but we should keep going and listening to God instead. So all in all, the meaning of the song is to "pay no mind to the demons they fill you with fear" and to pay mind to God, because we will be found by him. This gives me strength, because it helps me to remember all of this in the worst times. I hope it helps you all reading this too!

    This song is explaining how hard life is. I think it's also about how hard it is with new experiences. One place is your home and you can be scared going to new places. That's why this song is called home. It's about someone facing lots of obstacles in life and explains it in a song.

    It makes me think of refugees or new immigrants, who are hesitant and scared about this new life. It’s a song about quelling fear, that support exists, and the sense of home and comfort is close.

    I think this song is supposed to be about helping others and being brave. I like to write plays and I am using this song in one of them. (It's not an actual public performance, just for fun.)

    I hear this song I think of our rabbit Tenoch. A friend of my husbands found him in front of a tow yard. We went to go get him and bring him home. I think this song is me holding him and telling him, I am taking you to your home and no matter what it will be. You have a family now. He was so young we could not tell if he was male or female. Horrible people in this world, but God brought us to him.

    Phillips said that while the song and its writers are "really good", "it's not really something I would write". He also revealed that he had wanted to use a song he co-wrote with his brother-in-law, "Drive Me," as the coronation song. In interviews after the finale, he said, "The song that I did tonight that supposedly is my single, it's not really my single, I told them it's not my single."He also said, "I have my own stories to tell," and added "[but] I couldn’t do my song [on the finale]; we just didn’t have enough time." Philip stated that he writes songs in the "jazz and rock alternative sound; not really rock-rock."Phillips said that "I "didn't have time to let it grow and become my own before we recorded it"."Later he said he was "starting to grow a connection" with the song,and that "I kind of sing it like me, and on the guitar I do some different strummings on some parts, so it's coming along." wikipedia
