Lyrics Edit

Yes, I made the choice

For papa, I will stay

But I don't deserve to to lose my freedom in this way

You monster!

If you think that what you've done is right, well then

You're a fool!

Think again!

Is this home?

Is this where I should learn to be happy?

Never dreamed

That a home could be dark and cold

I was told

Ev'ry day in my childhood:

Even when we grow old

Home will be where the heart is

Never where words so true!

My heart's far, far away

Home is too

Is this home

Is this what I must learn to believe in

Try to find

Something good in this tragic place

Just in case

I should stay here forever

Held in this empty space

Oh, but that won't be easy

I know the reason why

My heart's far, far away

Home's a lie

What I'd give to return

To the life that I knew lately

But I know that I can't

Solve my problems going back

Is this home?

Am I here for a day or forever?

Shut away

From the world until who knows when

Oh, but then

As my life has been altered once

It can change again

Build higher walls around me

Change ev'ry lock and key

Nothing lasts, nothing holds

All of me

My heart's far, far away

Home and free!
