YouTube Video of My Day

One of the hardest concepts for me to grasp is "Home". It's so subjective an idea that I cannot decide how to define it. Sometimes, the feeling is brought on by ideas that have nothing to do with a place just by other abstract concepts like respecting humanity and childhood happiness.

What better way to describe that than with music? Probably a song and its music video.



This song Coming Home by The 88 works rather well.

They are a Los Angeles-based pop/rock/alternative band and will be performing at The GRAMMY Museum on Thursday July 28th.Click here for tickets.

The Lyrics

Won’t you be good to yourself
Don’t you feel like coming home
It’ll be good
It’ll be like coming home

Blend all your days into weeks
Keep all your thoughts to yourself
It’ll be good
It’ll be like coming home

Because you need a place to stay
And I’ve been feeling dead since you went away
You better believe what I tell you cuz you’re coming home

Won’t you bring light to my day
Won’t you be somebody new
It’ll be good
It’ll be like coming home

And tell me that you wanna be
With nobody else but me
It’ll be good
It’ll be like coming home

Because you need a place to stay
And I’ve been feeling dead since you went away
You better believe what I tell you cuz you’re coming home

But oh, it’s not a joke
It’s got a butler, and a maid, and a stove
It’s nothing new
It’s up to you
And when I feel it
I hope you feel it too
Did you hear it
Yeah I heard it
And I think she’s coming home to me

What are your thoughts on the video & song?
