Gabrielle Aplin came up with this song on the piano. She recalled to Artist Direct: "The lyrics didn't come up until the end of the session. I was reading, and I had the idea. I wrote it really quickly. After struggling for about six hours, I got it in about half-an-hour. It's a random song to write, really."
Aplin explained the song's meaning: "It's about having something you go to that's consistently there," she said. "You have some sort of salvation - whatever it may be. It could be God. It could be a friend. It could be a girlfriend or a boyfriend. It could be anything."
Asked by Coup De Main magazine if she has a favorite song to play live, Aplin replied: "With my band, I love playing 'Home' live. When it's me on my own, I love to play my song 'Salvation.'"
