"hit home" in lyrics

I'll pierce you with my sharp tongue
I'm illa even, even if I'm lazy
I'm busier than you- hit home
The haters who looked down on me before my debut

Our groove hit home like a bomb - made in America.

Check America's pulse, heard a death tone

Drunk myself into a coma
Often taken aim but never hit home
I know what it's like to be the ***

She pokes it out picture perfect, Instagram
I hit home runs and drain last shots
She tore her ACL from all the backshots

Worked the bars and sideshows along the twilight zone
Only a crowd can make you feel so alone
And it really hit home
Booze and pills and powders, you can choose your medicine

After all the things imma do to you
I don’t have to run the bases cuz I hit home runs
Stay away from my trigger, imma loaded gun

‘Cause I got everything I need right here, I got everything I want
‘Cause I’m a heavy-hearted bitch, hit home
I’m a need me a bone son

Ce que tu veux dire
Et envoie tes mots voguer sur les vagues
Envoie-les emporter un accord[fn]Je suppose que c'est le sens de "strike/hit home": dire quelque chose de percutant et pertinent[/fn]
Sur un vaisseau d'espoir dès aujourd'hui

The darkness I feel
Winters chill in my bones
My heart will ache but my words hit home

I saw too late that your passion was an illusion
That never hit home to me
I never saw through you
