“I need you in my house cuz you’re my home…”
Over the years, I have had my fair share of favorite songs. Plus, I even recently admitted one of my all-time favorites was November Rain, by Guns N’ Roses.
This song still brings me back to high school and a troubled relationship.
But thankfully, better relationships and times have prevailed for me.
At this point in my life, I am married for almost 12 years. No relationship is perfect. Still ours is not a teenage romance cliche. But ours is a grown up adult relationship that has evolved as the years have gone by. Don’t get me wrong. We have had ups and downs. Again though our marriage has remained and become stronger over the years.

I can’t help, but think of our marriage as “My Home”. It might be a bit worn. But it is cozy and fits me just right. So, my guy is my home through and through. Plus, our kids now complete our home in every sense of the word.
Makes sense that when I hear Billy Joel’s, You’re My Home, I think only of my husband.
Also, I have always been a Billy Joel fan. But it was my husband who first introduced me to this classic Billy Joel song. Therefore, it was also a song we made sure to dance to at our wedding. The reason for choosing this song was not only, because it was indeed Billy Joel. But the lyrics truly spoke to both of us. The song simply was and still is everything that was good and pure about our relationship.
Many years later. it doesn’t matter where we end up in this life. See as long as we have one another, I know in my heart that everything will be Ok.
Still yet when I hear this song even now, I am transported back to our wedding night. This was and still is one of the best nights of my life. And quite possibly the perfect song to define our relationship then and now, too.

You’re My Home Lyrics, by Billy Joel
When you look into my eyes
and you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
it always comes as a surprise
when i feel my withered roots begin to grow
well i never had a place
that I could call my very own
but that’s all right my love
cuz you’re my home.
when you touch my weary head
and you tell me everything will be all right
You say use my body for your bed
and my love will keep you warm throughout the night
well i’ll never be a stranger
and i’ll never be alone
wherever we’re together
that’s my home.
Home could be the Pennsylvania turnpike
Indiana’s early morning dew
high up in the hills of California
home is just another word for you
Well I never had a place that i could call my very own
but that’s all right my love cuz you’re my home
If i travel all my life
and i never get stop and settle down
long as i have you by my side
there’s a roof above and good walls all around
you’re my castle, you’re my cabin
and my instant pleasure dome
i need you in my house
cuz you’re my home,..
you’re my home.
