Home, Home, Home
There lays my throne
There also lays the pain that crows
There is no place like home

No matter how far you are away from home
No matter how thirsty you are for the strange throne
No matter how rich you are to buy the strange throne
You will always come back home

You will always remember there is a place of non-rejection
A place of peace
Rest of mind fills it
It's my home

I will always come back home
No matter how rich I am in a strange throne
I will always come back home
Cuz there lays my throne

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
