[Faith hill]
Hello world
Hope you're listening
Forgive me if I'm young
For speaking out of turn
There's someone I've been missing
I think that they could be
The better half of me
They're in the wrong place trying to make it right
But I'm tired of justifying
So I say to you...

[Chorus]
Come home
Come home
Cause I've been waiting for you
For so long, so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I've ever known
So come home...

[Faith hill]
I get lost in the beauty
Of everything I see
The world ain't as half as bad
As they paint it to be
When all the sons, all the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Then hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now
But maybe I'm just dreaming out loud
But until then

[Chorus]
Come home
Come home
Cause I've been waiting for you
For so long, so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I've ever known
So come home...

[Bridge]
Everything I can't be
Is everything you should be
And that's why I need you here

Everything I can't be
Is everything you should be
And that's why I need you here
So hear this now

[Chorus]
Come home
Come home
Cause I've been waiting for you
For so long, so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I've ever known,
Ever known

Come home...
Come home...

    Come home makes me think about my family because it is all spread out, but when i hear this song it makes me think of the times when it wasn't.. When my mom, my dad, and my bro and sis were all living in the same house, under the same roof, happily. But then it makes me sad because.. Thats not my life anymore :(

    It's for my ex husband who battles with addiction... He's been clean and sober for two years now, but there's a lot of time lost with our children that he has to make up for. He was 'away' during the greatest milestones of their lives... And it gives me hope for the delicate relationship they are all working to rebuild

    I think we all know that one person who knows who they really are but are so afriad to let it show to everybody. Its like there living in a whole nother world. They just need to come home & be who they really are and be with who they really want to be & stop always living for others..

    Young wife trying to keep her head up and the dreams of young love alive but doing it alone while waiting for her soldier to come home from war. She doesn't understand why there's a power struggle with the world (vanities) and they just can't see the beauty of what she sees.

    I broke up with the man i loved and adored 18 months ago. He loved me but not enough to make a commitment. I have been hoping that he would figure it out an come find me. He was always the better half of me. This song reminds me of him and the love that used to be.
