♫ Home ♫

A rare visit to one of the blogs I follow made me think of this song, and it got stuck, as songs are wont to do, inside my head.

Home was Michael Bublé’s breakthrough song.  He wrote this song for his then-fiancée, Debbie Timuss, describing the pain of being away from her. His song “Lost” was also inspired by her, but it was about their break up after a relationship of 8 years.

Michael Bublé

Another summer day
Is come and gone away
In Paris and Rome
But I want to go home

Maybe surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just want to go home
Oh I miss you, you know

And I’ve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
Each one a line or two
“I’m fine baby, how are you?”
Well I would send them but I know that it?s just not enough
My words were cold and flat
And you deserve more than that

Another aerorplane
Another sunny place
I’m lucky I know
But I want to go home
Mmmm, I’ve got to go home

Let me go home
I’m just too far from where you are
I want to come home

And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life
It’s like I just stepped outside
When everything was going right
And I know just why you could not
Come along with me
But this was not your dream
But you always believe in me

Another winter day has come
And gone away
And even Paris and Rome
And I want to go home
Let me go home

And I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel alone
Oh, let go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

Let me go home
I’ve had my run
Baby, I’m done
I gotta go home
Let me go home
It will all right
I’ll be home tonight
I’m coming back home

  1. As much as I like Michael Buble, and I do, this song will not be the “new hum” that I was advised to find. It is a great song and I believe that is Debbie Timuss in the video. Although, I still like “Close Your Eyes” better. Buble was quite the naughty boy, but seems to have gotten himself together. Thank-you!

    • Awww man … and I was so sure this would become your new hum, at least for a day or two until I could come up with another. Sigh … Back to the drawingboard … Sorry Benjamin … I tried …


      • I’m dual humming today, between “Dust in the Wind and “One Tin Soldier”. I think that my cerebral matter is clogged. Benjamin will not be happy if this persists!

        • Unfortunately, I have a feeling that today’s choice won’t be one that replaces either Tin Soldier or Dust … but it was what I wanted to play tonight. Perhaps Wednesday’s … yes, I think I know just the song to put your cerebral matter onto a different track! Stay tuned …
