"hit home" in lyrics
From Cuba and Korea too, we had to ride home with sorrow
But during "Operation Desert Storm" and in Hiroshima
Our groove hit home like a bomb - made in America.
We're not about power, money or oil
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
Stopped looking for the holy grail, stopped looking for the one
‘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]
