JFH Song Lyrics

  Artist List   /   Francesca Battistelli   /   If We're Honest


14. I Am Home

If We're Honest
by Francesca Battistelli


I was born in New York City / Raised in the sunshine state / And I met a boy from Georgia /
And we set a wedding date / Now my heart beats for the drummer / Yeah, there’s no sign of slowing down / Together we sing for our supper / Every night, a different town, singing // CHORUS: Maybe I was made to wander / Maybe I was born to roam / But, baby, as long as you’re with me / I am home, I am home // Sometimes it feels like Starbucks / Is my permanent address / And my kids are frequent fliers / They’ve been north and south, east and west, ’cause // CHORUS // DOUBLE CHORUS: Rolling from city to city / Out on the open road / Baby, as long as you’re with me / I am home, I am home // We bought a house in Nashville / Said maybe we should put down roots / This life is a great big adventure /And I thank God we get to do what we do, ’cause // CHORUS // DOUBLE CHOURUS

(Francesca Battistelli / Ian Eskelin / Tony Wood)

Behind the Song:
Ian Eskelin, Tony Wood, and I wrote this song the same day we finished “When the Crazy Kicks In,” also, ironically enough, on my 4th wedding anniversary. I am SO glad it made the record! It’s a fun song that sort of tells the story of my life. Its so true that home is comprised of people, not places. Anywhere I get to be with my husband and kids is home. - Francesca Battistelli
