  • Will Young told the Independent newspaper May 9, 2008 about the lyrics for this song: "'Home' is the first song I wrote with (Asian/English producer) Nitin Sawhney. Quite often when you write your first song with someone you get your best as there's a bit of nervous chemistry going on. I was definitely heartbroken when I wrote that. It means a lot to me because it's a sad song but there's positivity in it. I think that's what songs should be - I don't think there should be slit-your-wrists songs. Joni Mitchell said songs have a utility to them and I think about that when writing. That's describing a situation, which is desperately sad, a sad resignation. You try your best and something has to come to an end."
