Beauty And The Beast – Home lyrics


I, made the choice For
papa I will stay
I don't deserve to lose my freedom in this way You

you think that what you've done is right Well
then you're... a fool Think

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
will be where the heart is Never
were words so true My
heart's far far, away Home
is too

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
but, that won't be easy I
know the reason why My
heart's far far, away Home's
a lie
I'd give To
return To
the life that I knew lately But
I know that I can't Solve
my problems going back

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

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.
