song of the day (week) (month) (ok, year)

Here is what I’m listening to right now. It nicely captures the vibe of The Home Tome: it’s about having fun and appreciating our loved ones.

It’s called “Home” by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. Take a listen…(you tube wouldn’t let me fully embed the video, so just click on the arrow below then click “watch on you tube” and you will be escorted to it.)

In case you don’t already know these lyrics by heart, here they are, below. The little convo in the middle is excellent. My favorite lines are underlined – imagine me singing these to Rob at the top of my lungs at The Home Tome Headquarters with a hairbrush for a microphone. (On second thought, maybe it’s better if you just imagine me lip-synching.) (Never mind on that, too – just take me out of the equation and enjoy.) (…Though, I am a pretty fierce whistler.) (Enough, already!):

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy Moley, Me-oh-My, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend,
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie,
chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park,
through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls,
alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die,
barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the streets we’re running
free like it’s only you and me
Geez, you’re somethin’ to see.

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you (2x)

La la la la, take me Home Baby, I’m coming Home

“Jade?”
“Alexander?”
“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do, you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete
and nearly broke your ass
and you were bleeding all over the place
and I rushed you off to the hospital.
Do you remember that?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something
I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat
smoking a cigarette you thought
was going to be your last,
I was falling deep, deeply in love with you
and I never told you ‘til just now.”
“Now I know.”

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is whenever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

Ahh, Home
Yes, I am Home
Home is when I’m alone with you.

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Moats & boats & waterfalls & pay phone calls

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

  1. I do love this song too! I didn’t discover it the normal way though. My daughter and her friends did a dance routine to a new song called “Putting Up Hearts” which reminded me of “What’s Up?” by 4 Non-Blondes which brought me to the YouTube Channel of this talented duo. They charmed me so much that I had to watch all of them, “Home” included! Hope you like it too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L64c5vT3NBw
