  • Verse 1 (twice – soloist 2 lines; small group 2 lines; then full choir 4 lines)

Home is a roof over my head

Home is a pillow on my bed

Home is the smell of good things to eat

Home is the floor under my feet

  • Pre-chorus (unison)

A place where I feel safe

A place where I am me

A place where I feel warm

A place where I am free

  • Chorus (unison)

I love the place I call my home

I love the place where I am me

I love it in the heart of my home

Home is deep inside of me.

  • Verse 2 (twice repeat verse in unison)

Home is the door I want to open

Home is the smiles on all our faces

Home is the seat at the family table

Home is the best of all the places

  • Pre-chorus (with harmony)

A place where I feel safe

A place where I am me

A place where I feel warm

A place where I am free

  • Chorus (with harmony; sing twice)

I love the place I call my home

I love the place where I am me

I love it in the heart of my home

Home is deep inside of me.
