Home Lyrics

I’ll be coming home
Just to be alone
Cause I know you’re not there
And I know that you don’t care
I can hardly wait to leave this place

No matter how hard I try
You’re never satisfied
This is not a home
I think I’m better off...

    It's about a broken family. It's about how someone's family will never be proud of him/her and that person can't wait to leave and never look back.

    Personally, I like to think of it as "coming down." Sure, it could be the literal meaning of what the song is saying; a disrespecting family.

    To me, frankly, it's about drugs.

    The entire first verse (not typing it all) seems to be about coming down from the high, and just not caring about what you're doing. "I can hardly wait to leave this place" is the realization of what he's doing, and he now knows it's wrong.

    The chorus is the thought of needing the drug and not being able to support his addiction. I got this thought from watching an interview with Adam Gontier, the singer of the band, where he stated that he would basically be eating OxyCottin, daily. "No matter how hard I try, you're never satisfied." He tries to feed the addiction, but because it's just growing stronger, he's incapable of doing so. The second part of the chorus is the realization factor, that he doesn't need it, and he'd rather be without it.

    The second verse is about continuously getting high, and his mind is nothing. "By the time you come home, I am already stoned" He's taking more, when he's already high. "You turn off the TV and you scream at me" His mind is just going mad, and instead of being happy and content with himself, he's getting mad about it.

    Like I said at the beginning, this could be wrong, I don't know. It's just my interpretation of Home, and I like to think that it's right.

    It's about a spoiled kid. Ofc your parent or partner is going to scream if you just sit around getting high lol.

    The entire album seems to have to do with parent issues. "Just Like You" sounds like it has to due with Adam's dad. The majority of sons want to be in their dad's image. "Home" I believe, is about, him being his own person after trying to impress his parents failed. From how the song goes he doesn't consider their dwelling a home because he was never loved or appreciated.I can relate my step-grandfather likes to scream at me and cuss me out.

    This song can mean different things depending on what you relate it to. I'm enlisting into the military, I don't have family I live with my friends family. "I can hardly wait to leave this place" speaks volumes to me. I know when I leave I don't have anyone that would be bothered by me going across the state's to serve and it bothers me but it doesn't at the same time, because I know it'll teach me how to be independent and have a great mindset that I need to get past the shitty life I've been living.

    It's not about ralashionship deuche nuggets

    It's about a boy living with his abusive mother and he tries everything to please her and she is just not satisfyed
    I think the sombody should have every parent listen to this because honestly children derserve more respect!

    In my opinion, this song is quite like the other Three Days Grace songs, it can have different meanings to everyone depending on their current situations. To me, it was the hardest time of my life when my best friend kept constantly letting me down (he ended up regretting it every single time he did) and i thought about you saying farewell to him and just continue to live on without him. Erasing his part in my life and never looking back. But then I realised that this song is about telling your pain the one who's causing it give yourself a chance to start over. And this last part connects this song to Never too late. I hope my interpretarion wasn't that boring and I'm glad if this helps anyone out there.

    This song hits so close to me and the point i am in life that i am living this very moment. I think it has to do with the relationship that he is committed to, but it really isn't a relationship at all. He significant other doesn't appreciate anything he does. He comes home and doesn't want to talk to her because nothing positive will come of it. He just gets yelled at, verbally and mentally abused, and just wants to get stoned to become numb to the shit that he is subjected to. It's a rough spot to be in, and he thinks he would be better off alone, and he probably would be.

    This song has lots of different meaning. One would be about parents having problems so they get a divorce. The child is expressing their feelings on how they feel about it or about a step-parent. It could also mean that a kid feels their home is a cold place and thinks the only way out by getting out.

    i believe this song has a double meaning. on the Three Days Grace Live at The Palace DVD during this song Adam quotes a father yelling at a son, with emotion as if its a memory of how he might've been treated at shit at times. it could also be a metaphor for drugs and how the addiction is taking him and he can't satisfy it. It can also be exaggerated times of his parents discipling him because everything's exaggerated when you're high.

    it's about a kid (probably a teen adolescent) seeking his parent's approval that he will NEVER get. he feels his home is a cold place and thinks the only way out by getting out, i would know, i've been there before many a time.

    this song is about his girlfriend or wife.. he comes home and expects love and appreciation, but instead, he comes home to hate and disrespect.. his wife prety much abuses him and controls him.. "this house is not a home" means he doesnt feel welcome to be there.. and it doesnt have the evironment of a true home..

    This song seems to about a family like many famlies fight and argue. it shows that no famliy is perfect and that you may think you have a sound home but it aint that easy lifes harder than that

    I think this song is about a guy who doesn't feel like he belongs in this place he is supposed to call home and his girl is psycho and crazy so he needs to get stoned to get away from it.
