You can always come home

Some songs speak the truth. A truth which is well-known to everyone. You, me, her, him... But how much do we understand. If I say I understand Truth, I am only pretending I know. I love the song 93 million miles' by Jason Mraz. It's a beautiful song where Mraz sings it simply over a guitar.


93 million miles

93 million miles from the Sun, people get ready get ready,
'cause here it comes, it’s a light, a beautiful light, over the horizon into our eyes
Oh, my my how beautiful, oh my beautiful mother
She told me, "Son, in life you’re gonna go far, if you do it right you’ll love where you are
Just know, wherever you go, you can always come home"

240 thousand miles from the Moon, we’ve come a long way to belong here,
To share this view of the night, a glorious night, over the horizon is another bright sky
Oh, my my how beautiful, oh my irrefutable father,
He told me, "Son, sometimes it may seem dark, but the absence of the light is a necessary part.
Just know, you’re never alone, you can always come back home"

Ohh…ohh…ohh…
Ohh…ohh…ohh…
You can always come back

Every road is a slippery slope
There is always a hand you can hold onto.
Looking deeper through the telescope
You can see that your home’s inside of you.

Just know, that wherever you go, no you’re never alone, you will always get back home

Ohh…ohh…ohh…
93 million miles from the Sun, people get ready get ready,
'cause here it comes it’s a light, a beautiful light, over the horizon in to our eyes…

The below lines strikes a chord in you. Every one of us have been there, the tiring path up the hill or groping for hold over situation in the dark. Many of us have asked the questions, what is the meaning of all this?

"Son, in life you’re gonna go far, if you do it right you’ll love where you are
Just know, wherever you go, you can always come home"

"Son, sometimes it may seem dark, but the absence of the light is a necessary part.
Just know, you’re never alone, you can always come back home"

"You can see that your home’s inside of you."

That sounds true. If I do it right, I will love it. The darkness does bring meaning to the light. And after all there is always home to come back. But what is home? What does the word mean? What if you are still searching this place called home? What is one suppose to do?

Do you know?

  1. I like the lines you mentioned.

    I found this one quite interesting:
    Looking deeper through the telescope
    You can see that your home’s inside of you.

    Never looked at it from that POV. The idea that your home's inside of you is fascinating.

    Sometimes I have felt home in people. Simply talking to someone has felt like coming home. It is rare, but it feels wonderful.

    Been a long time. I've missed you.

    1. Hey Hey..
      Good to see you :) Even I missed myself writing...but even now, it is very hectic and somehow I am afraid to write.. I want to read your posts.. just a few weeks more and I am expecting to have a better work-life balance..

      True about people... but do you have people with whom you've completely opened your mind? If so, you are lucky!
