Lyrics

WHEN THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Freebo, Bassline Music (BMI)
Karen Taylor-Good, Song Guru Music (SESAC)

VERSE 1:
I used to be your neighbor,
Had my job and I had my pride.
But they shipped them both to China,
And it ripped a hole inside.
They took my house last summer.
Now I’m hungry, cold, and scared.
And I’m wondering, does anybody care?

CHORUS:
When there’s no place like home,
And you’re out on your own,
You feel abandoned and alone,
When there’s no place like home.

VERSE 2:
I used to be a hero,
The strong, the proud, the few.
When duty called I stood up tall
For the red, white, and blue.
But no hero’s welcome waited
When my damaged soul returned.
Uncle Sam don’t give a damn, that’s what I learned.

CHORUS:
There’s no place like home,
When you’re out on your own.
You feel abandoned and alone,
When there’s no place like home.

BRIDGE:
Please don’t look right past me,
A simple smile could help me make it through…..
I could be you.

VERSE 3:
If home is where the heart is,
Then where’s the heart supposed to go
When you’re living room’s a cardboard box,
And your address is skid row?
If a man’s home is his castle,
And the place where he is King,
What happens when he loses everything?

CHORUS:
There’s no place like home
When you’re out on your own.
You feel abandoned and alone,
When there’s no place like home….
When there’s no place like home….
There’s no place like home!
