In My Home

I turn the key, open the door,
4 walls, a roof and yet so much more.
I walk up the stairs, go straight,
for now I am looking for a room to store all my hate.

In my home I feel safe while I slumber.
For in this home there is so much to remember.
In my home I sleep and eat
and right here is where all my friends can meet.

In my home I’m the only one here
all I know is that help is near
so for now there is nothing to fear.

In my home I feel warm inside,
it’s quite the thing to bring someone alive.
In my home I am not lonely
because I have people to keep me company.

In my home love is what keeps it together
without it, there will be nothing to remember.
