Stephanie Mills - Home Lyrics




When I think of home
I think of a resting place
A place where there's peace, quiet, and serenity
And that's where some of my friends have gone
Friends who have traveled with me through my wonderful experience in Oz
A journey Ill never forget

When I think of home, I think of a place
where's there's love overflowing
I wish I was home, I wish I was back there
With the things I've been knowing

Wind that makes the tall grass bend into leaning
Suddenly the raindrops that fall they have a meaning
Sprinklin the scene
Makes it all clean

(When I think of home)
Maybe there's a chance for me to go back
Now that I have some direction
(Maybe there's a chance I'll get home)
It sure would be nice to be back at home
Where there's love and affection

And just maybe I can convince time to slow up
Givin me enough time, ooh, in my life to grow up
Time be my friend
And let me start again

Suddenly my worlds gone and change its fate
And I still know where I'm going
I have had my mind spun round in space
And watched it growing

And oh, if you're listening, God, please don't make it hard
To know if we should believe the things that we see
Tell us should we try and stay or should we run away (Should we run away)
Or will it be better just to let things, let them be, oh

Livin here in this brand new world
Might be a fantasy
But its taught me to love, oh, yeah
And its real, its so real, its real to me

And I've learned that we must look
Inside our hearts to find
A world full of love
Like yours, like mine

Like home
Like, like home
(When I think of home)
My friends smilin down on me
Givin me their energy, oh
(When I think of home)
I think of a peaceful world and joy
All around me, yeah
(When I think of home)
And love that we share can never
Never, ever be taken away from me, yeah, yeah, yeah
(When I think of home)
I just sit down and think
And gets on down in my bone, bone, yeah
(When I think of home)
I can hear my friends tellin me
Stephanie, please sing my song
I want to sing, I want to shout
I want to tell you what its all about

    The Mrs. and I saw Stephanie do this on BroadwayY God Good Lord talk about Emotions! Her performance was unreal! We had a multitude as well! CHILLS and then Tears! It was that GREAT!

  44. Kay

    She was supposed to be in The Wiz and Diana was chosen over her. They wanted someone light and that is so sad. Stephanie said in an interview that she loved MJ but " I guess I was too dark for him." You could hear the pain in her voice.

  53. Valenda Newell

    Stephanie was always a CLASS ACT, no one could sing a song like that woman, she had the voice no one could match, receiving a STANDING OVATION everytime she SANG this BEAUTIFUL song. I never understood why she was so underrated, her voice is still powerful as it was when this song first came out. STEPHANIE is still a ICONIC LEGEND...Always and forever...PEACE

    Stephanie Mills has been an entertainer all her life since 1968 well over 50 years and has not been honored. Her distinctive voice stands alone.

  74. theresa webb

  75. Boho Lif3

  93. LonelyTravelogue

    I’m here bec of a girl who sang this in her concert https://youtu.be/WM2QKfNcqXM

  94. Carolline Martins

    I think the lyrics talks about the awakening of consciousness. Home is our own self full of love and true potential but we don't have a total understending of what we can do. So, there's the journey! A process of knowing ourselves in the middle of a society that seems kinda messy. Pay close attention to the lyrics: living here, in this brand new world might be a fantasy - but it taught me to love, so it's real!!! 🙏🏼❤

  95. Robin Crawley

    Niiiiice Mrs. Mills,
    Love It!!
