I've got my memories
They're always
Inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was
I believe it now
I've come too far
But I can't go back
Back to how it was
Created for a place
I've never known

[Chorus:]
This is home
Now I'm finally
Where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching
For a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back
Back to how it was
And I've got my heart set
On what happens next
I've got my eyes wide
And it's not over yet
We are miracles
And we're not alone

(Chorus)

And now after all
My searching
After all my questions
I'm gonna call it home
I've got
A brand new mindset
I can finally see
The sunset
I'm gonna call it home

(Chorus)

Now I know
Yeah, this is home
I've come too far
And I won't go back
Yeah, this is home

    This song was written for the new Narnia movie. At the end of the movie, the children have to leave Narnia and go back to their own world. They are really sad that they have to go back because Narnia feels more real and more like home to them than the place they came from. This song is just about how we are always searching for something beyond this life and looking for our true home that we will only get to after we die and go to heaven.

    i think.. this is song is about.. is like, you're happy and you have a great life thats worth living, and then you remember how it used to be.. you were looked down upon, you were depressed or emo or something. but now this is how you want to be, happy and all, OR.. in my HONEST view.. you've been so depressed all your life you are just used to it and your friends are like that too but just not around you cause ya'll just have fun with eachother and love eachother... thats home.

    The song is about god. 'belief over misery' 'we are miracles and we're not a alone'. John(the writer) is a christians so he's talking about the time he encounter god and felt that this was the place that he belongs(his home). He often talks about a place in which he belongs in many of his songs.

    The meaning to this song simply is the economy is gradually deteriorating. The singers story is showing that buying houses is a lot harder these days. He can't find a home for the longest time. Thankfully, he manages to find one, another words, there is still hope out there that economy can be fixed. The writer believes we should cut down on our money. Thank you for listening to my view on "this is home".
