Beauty And The Beast – Home lyrics


Yes, I made the choice
For papa I will stay

But I don't deserve to lose my freedom in this way
You monster

If you think that what you've done is right
Well then,
You're a fool
Think again

Is this home?
Is this where I should learn to be happy?
Never dreamed
That a home could be
Dark and cold,
I was told,
Every day in my childhood
Even when we grow old
Home should be where the heart is
Never were words so true
My heart's far far, away
Home is too

Is this home?
Is this what I must learn to believe in?
Try to find something good
In this tragic place
Just in case
I should stay here forever
Held in this empty space

Oh, but, that won't be easy
I know the reason why
My heart's far, far, away
Home's a lie

What I'd give
To return, to the life that I knew lately
But I know
That I can't, solve my problems going back

Is this home?
Am I here for a day or forever?
Shut away from the world until
Who knows when
Oh but then
As my life has been altered once it can change again
Build higher walls around me
Change every lock and key
Nothing lasts nothing, holds all of me

My heart's far far, away
Home and, free

    The meaning of home is actually quite literal. Belle, perhaps in response to the tremendous stress her surrender has created, has put up a mental block to her surroundings as a coping mechanism. When she asks "is this home? " she's actually inquiring as to the nature of her surroundings. Belle no longer knows where she is because her cognitive processes are at their breaking point. At the end, she remembers where she is, accepts her fate, and remembers that she left the door to her actual home unlocked as evidenced by the lines: "change every lock and key, nothing lasts" (recognizing that forgetting to lock the door isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things) and "home and free" (referring to the fact that her home is free to enter because it is unlocked). Hope this helps.
