One Republic: Come Home Lyrics #MM

Monday, November 15, 2010
This week's Musical Monday is held in the spirit of Veterans Day in the US. So, I thought that I would search for a song dedicated to all the men and women who have been sent out to war, nevertheless about their country and nationality. I hope that everyone will come home to the ones they love and someday war can be put to an end. November is also the month of Blog Blast for Peace and I find this moving song as a wonderful contribution for promoting peace.

One Republic is an American band from Colorado Springs that started their carrier through MySpace since 2002, before they made their first debut album in 2007 called Dreaming Out Loud. The song Come Home was taken from the 12th track on this album.

If you have time, I would like to recommend you to check out JalapaoMaji's channel on Youtube for more beautiful videos. I must say that they were quite stunning and I thought that you might enjoy watching them as well.




Come Home lyrics

[Verse 1]
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 you’ll...

[Chorus]
Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
For 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
Oh

[Verse 2]
I get lost in the beauty
Of everything i see
The world ain’t as half as bad
As they paint it to be
If all the sons
If all the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Well hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now..Yeahh
Well maybe I’m just dreaming out loud
Until then

[Chorus]
Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
For 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
So come home
Oh

[Interlude]
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
For 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
So come home
Come home
