Well, I couldn't tell you
Why she felt that way
She felt it everyday

And I couldn't help her
I just watched her make
The same mistakes again

What's wrong, what's wrong now?
Too many, many problems
Don't know where she belongs
Where she belongs

She wants to go home
But nobody's home
It's where she lies
Broken inside

No place to go
No place to go
To dry her eyes
Broken inside

Open your eyes
And look outside
Find the reasons why

You've been rejected
And now you can't find
What you've left behind

Be strong, be strong now
Too many, many problems
Don't know where she belongs
Where she belongs

She wants to go home
But nobody's home
It's where she lies
Broken inside

No place to go
No place to go
To dry her eyes
Broken inside

Her feelings she hides
Her dreams she can't find
She's losing her mind
She's falling behind

She can't find her place
She's losing her faith
She's falling from grace
She's all over the place...

Yeah... oh...

She wants to go home
But nobody's home
It's where she lies
Broken Inside

No place to go
No place to go
To dry her eyes
Broken Inside

She's lost inside,
Lost inside
Oh, ohh... yeah...

She's lost inside,
Lost inside
Oh, Oh... yeah...

    Its about a homeless teenager...

    In the music video for "Nobody's Home", Avril plays a homeless teenager who lives street-to-street with another girl. Lavigne, who said it was really fun to make, had to wear a black wig, and acid-wash jeans for the video. The other side Lavigne had to play was a rich-like version of her: in a dress, with long, curled blonde hair, singing the song with an orchestra behind her.

    "Nobody's Home" showed the outcasted, homeless Lavigne trying to get off the streets. She also tries to call her mother, but hangs up. In other parts of the video the outcasted girl is shown washing herself in a convenience store bathroom. She also tries playing the guitar on the street, probably trying to earn money. The video also shows the runaway trying to get inside an unlocked car during heavy rain. At the end of the video, the girl, dirty clothes, messy short hair and all, is shown with a tear rolling down her cheek. After that, she turns around and walks away
