Dishwalla: Home Lyrics #MM

Monday, January 24, 2011
If you have been away from home for a long time or are searching for a moment of peace, the song "Home" by Dishwalla is dedicated to you. These are the opening words of  J.R. Richards, the vocalist, in the following life performance video. I really think that his voice, the song lyrics and music may give you some time to escape from the hectic of life. I always consider home as a place of warmth and a place to energize.

Dishwalla is an American alternative rock band that released their first album "Pet Your Friends" in 1995.  The third single "Counting Blue Cars" hit great success and was chosen as Best Rock Song of 1996. Some of their songs have been featured as movie soundtracks, like "Home" in "The Banger Sisters (2002)"  starring Goldie Hawn plus Susan Sarandon, and "Truth Serum" in "The Avengers (1998)" starring Ralph Fiennes, Uma Thurman plus Sean Connery. TV shows like Charmed, Smartville and The OC also used Dishwalla's songs in their episodes.

Home lyrics

I'm so sick and tired
of all these things
that drag me down
I've got no where to go
they say that life
is in these hands
you give everything
you give yourself away you give
and still you choke
and find yourself running for the door

come and take me
lead me to your door
take me where you are
lead me to your door
at least just for a while

its some kind of life
forever days
we're in the cold

unfamiliar way
so take this fear
and fade it out
it won't make me sad
cause I get sentimental lord
in other ways
and I don't want to let me down here anymore

so come and take me home
lead me to your door
take me where you are
lead me to your door
and let me in
just let me in
and let me leave
just let me leave this world
come on now let me leave this world
at least just for a while
