Song of the Week: You're My Home

This week's song is called You're My Home by Billy Joel.  It's one of his better, though not so well known songs.  I dedicate it to the love of my life.  Lisa, this is for you:


When you look into my eyes
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
It always comes as a surprise
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow
Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

When you touch my weary head
And you tell me everything will be all right
You say, "Use my body for your bed
And my love will keep you warm throughout the night"
Well I'll never be a stranger and I'll never be alone
Whenever we're together, that's my home

Home can be the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Indiana's early morning dew
High up in the hills of California
Home is just another word for you

Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

If I travel all my life
And I never get to stop and settle down
Long as I have you by my side
There's a roof above and good walls all around
You're my castle, you're my cabin and my instant pleasure dome
I need you in my house 'cause you're my home.
You're my home.

You're my home

I have been thinking this past week about how to best express my love for my wife. This song brought me to tears. I immediately sent a copy of it to her. Wow!

After that, my remote needs new batteries. I love you, too.

I love this song. And Vienna is in my top 5 songs of all time (especially the 12 Gardens live version).
