"Home" by Blue October is a new song on the radio, that was released in 2016. The song is about making a house a home with the one you love and appreciating the life that he has.
Here is an except from the song.
"I'm living for the right now
I had a few friends show me how
I take a deep breath and blow it out
Let it go
But listen I—
I can't wait to see what's around the corner
I can't wait to soar
Baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping
thinking it's the little things that make a home
Like dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves mamma and mamma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again
So smile at me, baby, take my breath away
With the good Lord willing, I'll be happy to say
That daddy loves mamma and mamma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again"
These lyrics say everything about what the song is about.
Finally, we have a song about appreciating what is in front of us. I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to this song for the first time. We need more songs like this. Appreciating the little moments in life. I can't listen to more songs about heart breaks and how you don't know if you can go on anymore. We need more songs like this in the world.
This song makes me smile every single time I listen to it. It gives me hope that one day, I will sing this song and know exactly what the lyrics mean. Yes, I am a 19 year old college student that doesn't have a husband or kids. So I can't fully understand the beauty of waking up next to my true love, dancing in the kitchen under the pale moonlight, and loving the fact that tomorrow is a brand new day, with the same things.
This song makes me appreciate the way I live my life. It makes me realize that I have to appreciate the little things, that I came from a loving household and I have been given so many wonderful opportunities. I grew up in a loving household with two wonderful parents and three amazing siblings. I am lucky to come from a house like that. My parents have been incredible role models for me and for everything that I hope to have one day.
I hope one day, I will be making my house, a home, with my husband and kids. This song makes me hopeful that one day I will go to sleep excited to live the same life the next day. Going to work, coming home to a loving husband and raising our kids. It makes me excited to see what is going to be around the corner in ten years.
This song is beautiful. We need more songs like this. It makes the younger generation hopeful for what is around their corner.
