Off the record

I have two songs to share today – funny they both share a name but in their individuality, they have managed to charm their ways into my heart as well as the artistes that sang them. I just discovered them and realised how amazing they are.
Ladies and gentlemen,  Nadia Fay and Gabrielle Aplin with “HOME”

Nadia:
I really thought I was content
Counting sheep and staring at the ceiling
You came and show me what it meant
That home is not a house but a feeling

‘Cause when you’re around
My world is rosy
When you’re around
You make me feel so cozy

Home is where you are
Home is where I wanna be
Wherever you are
You can come home to me

I need a place to rest my head
I’ve looked North and South, East and West
Slept in the most comfortable bed
Without you here, I can’t get any rest

‘Cause when you’re around
The world is rosy
When you’re around
You make me feel so cozy

Home is where you are
Home is where I wanna be
Wherever you are
You can come home to me

Gabrielle:
I’m a phoenix in the water
A fish that’s learnt to fly
And I’ve always been a daughter
But feathers are meant for the sky
So I’m wishing, wishing further
For the excitement to arrive
It’s just I’d rather be causing the chaos
Than laying at the sharp end of this knife

With every small disaster
I’ll let the waters still
Take me away to some place real

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home

So when I’m ready to be bolder,
And my cuts have healed with time
Comfort will rest on my shoulder
And I’ll bury my future behind
I’ll always keep you with me
You’ll be always on my mind
But there’s a shining in the shadows
I’ll never know unless I try

With every small disaster
I’ll let the waters still
Take me away to some place real

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home home home home

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home
