Episode 27 Preview - Home

We finally come to the end of our Songs About Love series with newlyweds Carolyn and Mark Brillon sharing about their wedding song, Vanessa Carlton's "Home".  It's a sweet, sweet episode; much hugging is had.  Perhaps you'd like to listen in too?

You can pick up the song at Amazon Music or Google Play.  iTunes is broken as a write this.  I could link it later, but, no, let this be a lesson to Apple to fix their service for the pre-eminent music podcast with "They're" and "Playing" and "Song" in the title.

No official video for the song, but here's some footage of Vanessa playing the song in nearby Natick, Massachusetts.

And now, the lyrics:


Some people live in a house on the hill
And wish they were some place else
There's nobody there
When the evening is still
Secrets with no one to tell

Some I have known have a ship where they sleep with sounds of rocks on the coast
They sail over oceans five fathoms deep
But can't find what they want the most

Even now when I'm alone
I've always known with you
I am home

Some live in towns
Cardboard shack on concrete
All bluster and bustling life
They search for the color you can never quite see
Cause it's all white on white

Even now when I'm alone
I've always known with you
I am home

For me it's a glance and the smile on your face the touch of your hands,
And an honest embrace
For where I lay it's you I keep,
This changing world I fall asleep
With you all I know is I'm coming home,
Coming home

So, listen, watch, read, and tune in on Wednesday for the thrilling (and months-late) conclusion!
