Quote: Somethin' in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms There's somethin' in your voice, makes my heart beat fast Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life
If you knew how lonely my life has been And how long I've been so alone And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along And change my life the way you've done
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me It feels like I'm all the way back where I come from It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
A window breaks, down a long, dark street And a siren wails in the night But I'm alright, 'cause I have you here with me And I can almost see, through the dark there is light
Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me And how long I've waited for your touch And if you knew how happy you are making me I never thought that I'd love anyone so much
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me It feels like I'm all the way the back where I come from It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong
I love this song, and I think the sentiment it expresses is beautiful.
But what happens after the first fight? What happens when that wonderful mortal "home" you have invested your safety in dies? Or leaves you for someone else? Or when they demand more from you than you can give without sacrificing yourself?
Are you then homeless, sleeping in emotional alleyways, pushing your precious romantic ideals along in a stolen shopping cart?
I have found myself wandering those lonely streets of the heart too many times after believing someone else could "save" me.
The home you have yearned for cannot be found outside of yourself.
I had to find it within before I could be in a healthy relationship with another. I believe that is true for us all.
I reject the notion that love and friendship can do anything more than support your growth. You are 100% responsible for everything else. If you can find true love for yourself, your life will be magical and wonderful whether or not you have a partner.
The connection with and commitment to myself is the crucial one in shaping my experience of life. Without that, even the most fantastic relationship would leave me empty inside.
If my beloved partner was not in my life, supporting my learning and growth, I would continue the same work with myself and others. He is intensely dear to me, but not essential.
Because I know that I am my own home, I do not fear being cast out. I can give from the well of my heart and still have plenty to quench my own thirst.
