Gabrielle Aplin

Another Gabrielle Aplin song, I know. What can I say? When I really enjoy something, I tend to love it all.

After hearing Start of Time, I grew curious of Aplin’s other works. When the song Home played next on her YouTube playlist, I couldn’t help but smile yet tear up at the same time…once again, she just wrote about my life without even knowing it. I had just moved to Ottawa and was feeling rather homesick. But after hearing this song, I realized that I simply found another place to call home – a place where I felt more like me than I had ever felt before.


I’m a phoenix in the water
A fish that’s learned 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, 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, home, home, home, home
