Billy Joel You're My Home Lyrics

Last updated: 03/17/2014 05:03:53 AM

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
That's all right, my love, 'cause 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
Whenever we're together, that's my home

Home can 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
That's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

If I travel all my life
And I never get to 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 'cause you're my home.
You're my home.

You're my home.

Heard 37 years ago, Understand and believe 37 years later. | Reviewer: Keith17112 | 3/16/14

Yesterday I was visiting a spiritual counselor with the love of my life. The counselor turned to me and my lady and said that for me my love for her is my home. I immediately thought of this song and sang it to her in the car. No song could possibly capture and express my feelings for her as does this one. I heard this song sung in person by Mr. Joel nearly 37 years ago and marveled at its beauty. Today I revel in its truth and wrap myself in the joy my lady brings to me.

Billy joel -a great sorcerer with words and music | Reviewer: Vishal mohan | 2/13/13

Its a great song and billy is a great singer.i m from india and here many dont know him as they know mj,elvis etc but i am pretty sure that anyone who loves english music cant help falling in love with his music

no title | Reviewer: MARC D | 12/21/12

my wife and i chose this song as "our song" on the day we were wed, and that was 30 years ago. i STILL sing it to this day, because it's still true. too profound to be coming from such a young man, virtually a kid. it's a shame that his life has to be as rocky as it is. I wish upon him the peace that he's helped bring to me.

thank you | Reviewer: Connie Anderson James | 11/8/12

I'm sorry and happy to say today is the first time I ever heard this song. I felt kind of silly sitting here with tears rolling down my face and the feeling of "Thats it" screaming in my head. It perfectly discribes the love I have for my husband. Mr. Joel has blended the English language in this song to speak to the soulof any man or woman. Thank you so much.

Composer of the song | Reviewer: Stephen Wayne Reno | 11/8/12

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to and singing the Helen Reddy version of "Your My Home" for more than thirty consecutive years and never knew it was written by Billy Joel until this very day today Thursday, November 08, 2012. What an absolutely wonderfully beautiful thing to say to someone.

My most favorite song next to In My Life | Reviewer: Kurt J. Daghita | 9/27/12

What can I say this song is simple beatiful. I can not think of any woman (or man for that matter) that would not want to hear those words. I know I most certianly would. A true testament to love as it should be. I got a chance to see Billy live at my college when he was just starting out, the man is a genius with lyrics. Thanks you for this one and all of the fine work it has been my peasure to enjoy over the years. Your music is timeless. And being a former New Yorker I am always in a "New York State Of Mind".

I have something to tell the guy called John. It is not your disicion to tell billy joel to "lay of the booze" so back off.
Anyway about this song. This song "your my home" is one of the most beautiful love songs i have ever heard. In the lyrics he expresses that he never had a house but his girl friend (his soul mate) makes him feel like he does.

you're my home meaning | Reviewer: tony | 2/11/08

This songs lyrics are true to me. This was our wedding song 23 years ago. All I know is that my wife, my woman, my love, Sara is my home. As long as she's by my side and near me she's my home. When I come come to her, she's my home every night.
Unfortunately, I've become disabled due to MS and in a wheelchair. Because of this, she doesn't feel the same.
I still love you Sara! Always will!
Thank you Billy!

The Lyrics | Reviewer: John | 8/20/07

I really enjoy this song.

The lyrics are beautiful.

Thank you, Billy Joel.

I just wish you'd stay away from that booze, man.

They make a joke of you in the news and on Saturday Night Live and my heroes are not supposed to be like that!
