From the interview at Tunecore.com:

We wrote it one night when Deej got a very sobering phone call right in the middle of a session.  He stepped outside to talk, but I could feel the emotion in the conversation, even though we were separated by walls.  He came back in, sat in his chair, and stared at the floor.  There was this whole mood of intensity and sorrow.  I picked up the guitar, on the verge of tears, and started strumming. Deej was waiting on a follow up call, but in the meantime, picked up a guitar as well, and grabbed a pen and paper. We ended up writing “Home” that night.

"Home"

Close your eyes

Make a wish

I can see your frustrated

Your needing to get outside of this

Here’s my hand

I’ll take yours

I can feel your heart beating

On the edge of your finger tips

Here’s my consolation

All situations will pass us by

I’m not here to judge, I’m the rock that wont budge

If you need to cry

It saves me 

When I save you

My home is where your heart is

Let’s let go

Of the things that bring us down

Take a breath of fresh air; forget that we care

And look around

Let’s forget

The problems will fade away

Let’s soak up this moment- and savor the time

We’re in this together, your heart and mine 

Here’s my consolation

All situations will pass us by

I’m not here to judge, I’m the rock that wont budge

If you need to cry

It saves me

When I save you

My home is where your heart is

It saves me 

When I save you

My home is where your heart is

And when these walls, they start closing in

I’ll break them down, i’ll break them down

And if these walls, they get to high

Just remember that i’m right by your side, each prayer accepted

And each wish resigned

It saves me 

When I save you

My home is where your heart is

It saves me 

When I save you

Our home is where our love is

Thanks for the love and support! :) Feel free to share!
