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.

Always someone tryna chip away chip away
Only makes it double strong

You don't know where you're gonna go

Until I had your love, my world was cold.
I did what most men do, and I messed it up.
