Lyrics to Daughtry’s Home
I’m staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I’m going to the place where love
And feeling good don’t ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel’s a different kind of pain.

I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old
So I’m going home.
Well I’m going home.

The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I’ve not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love, remains true.
And I don’t know why.
You always seem to give me another try.

So I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.

Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don’t want.
Be careful what you wish for,
‘Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.

Oh, well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old.
So I’m going home.
I’m going home.

  3. I just came across your blog and am really enjoying reading your story. I am in a very similar situation – twin boys born at 33 weeks, which was about 3 weeks ago for me. They are still in the NICU, and I am so anxious for them to come home. I can definitely relate to what you’re going through. This post brought a tear to my eye. Keep up the great posts.

    Tricia,
    It is wonderful to have shared some of this journey with you these few years. I know how bad you wanted them and I remember the day you told me you were pregnant. Your voice glowed even thru the phone.
    It’s been a hard road for you and Jon but I have never known you to do things the easy way :-).
    At the end of this one road you finally have your babies home, and new one starts today. Enjoy it.

    Congratulations, Tricia and Jon.
