I'm staring out into the night
Trying to hide the pain
I'm going to the place where love
And feeling good don't ever cost a thing
And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain

I'm going home
Back to the place where I belong
And where your love has always been enough for me

I'm not running from
No, I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me

But these places and these faces are getting old
So I'm going home
Well I'm going home

The miles are getting longer, it seems
The closer I get to you
I've not always been the best man or friend for you
But your love remains true
And I don't know why
You always seem to give me another try

So I'm going home
Back to the place where I belong
And where your love has always been enough for me

I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it all
You just might get it all
And then some you don't want

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it all
You just might get it all, yeah

Oh, well I'm going home
Back to the place where I belong
And where your love has always been enough for me

I'm not running from
No, I think you got me all wrong
I don't regret this life I chose for me
But these places and these faces are getting old

I said, these places and these faces are getting old
So, I'm going home

I'm going home

    I really think that the song is about a soldier. He is going home to either god or to the woman he loves...

    I am sure this is a song which holds many different meanings for many different people. For me I related to two very emotional and personal aspects of my life. At first when it was new to me I thought of home as being returned to what most refer to as heaven. It always seemed comforting to me to on day go "home" where my daddy and all my other loved ones who have passed on were waiting for my time to join them once again. At the same time I was at home raising my 4 children on my own for the most part while their father was on the road for weeks on end doing construction. He only came home 2-3 days at a time and was off again for usually 3 weeks. Though he never gave us the time and love we deserved while away neglecting to call most nights and partying and having fun. It was absolutely frustrating and infuriating and as upset as I would get I was always excited to know when he was on his way home. I always missed him and it always seemed I would no matter what be willing to give him another try. He defiantly wasn't the best friend to me but my love always remained true. And the beginning.
    Oddly enough, even though it refers to how he is on his way home, always made me think of my love as he started out on his 3 week tour driving for hours away from home. Trying to be strong and act cool for the guys but with an aching in his heart for home and his beautiful family. Even though he does not travel any more it stirs up such an emotion inside me of loneliness and dispare every time I hear this song, it will always remind me of a time when I didn't think I would ever survive the pressure of this life and the lonely feelings I tried to hide so my kids wouldn't see, and I knew how it effected them as well which was the hardest part of all. Strangely during the end of his career this song became as it was at first, a longing for myself to just go "home" because I was so fed up with this world and all the pain. A different kind of pain, and for my missing my daddy. Just a mixed up feeling, and it returns each time I hear it, and runs deep lt throughout my whole being, I don't think that will ever go away. It's funny how feelings can become engraved in the heart and brought to light when a old song comes on the radio. I love music! Just sayin! That's just my take. Epicthoughts. Love & peace.
