  • Touching down from a six night honeymoon
    Sun kissed kids still on drunk on love
    Went from all-inclusive margaritas in Malibu
    To praying we could pay rent this month

    That doormat says welcome home
    But I think it's wherever I'm with you
    It's more than some bricks and stones
    No, there ain't nothin' like

    Home sweet you and me
    Ain't got much but we got all we need
    Wherever the wind blows
    Wherever this life goes
    Baby all I know, ain't nothin' like, nothin' like
    Home sweet
    You and me

    Your love is like a porch swing on Sunday
    Just as gentle as a summer sunrise
    They say it's where the heart is
    Well, mine's with you babe
    Long as I got your hand I'm fine, yeah

    Could be a white brick and picket fences
    Or some busted AC hotel room
    It's all picture perfect if you're in it
    No it don't get much better than

    Home sweet you and me
    Ain't got much but we got all we need
    Wherever the wind blows
    Wherever this life goes
    Baby all I know, ain't nothin' like, nothin' like
    Home sweet (nothin' like, nothin' like)
    You and me (nothin' like, nothin' like)

    Home sweet (nothin' like, nothin' like) Yeah
    You and me (nothin' like, nothin' like)

    Quarter acre and a two-bed farmhouse
    Polaroid kiss with the red sold sign
    Sittin' on boxes in the livin' room laughin' and cryin'
    Just starin' down at those two pink lines, huh
    Ooh yeah
    Time to make a little more room in our home sweet
    You and me

    Yeah we got it all and you're still all I need
    Wherever the wind blows
    Wherever this life goes
    Baby all I know, ain't nothin' like, nothin' like
    Home sweet (nothin' like, nothin' like)
    You and me (nothin' like, nothin' like)
    Home sweet (nothin' like, nothin' like)
    You and me, yeah yeah (nothin' like, nothin' like)
    (Home Sweet)
    (Nothin' like, nothin' like)
    Woo
    (You and me )
    (Nothin' like, nothin' like)
    Ah yeah
