Where the Water Doesn’t Taste Weird

Home wraps me up like a blanket when I’m cold
And helps me out like a friend when I’m feeling sad and alone
It warms me up like a cup of hot chocolate
And makes me feel safe when I’m worried about the apocalypse
It protects me from the outside forces, from the rain to the snow
And anything else with a mysterious glow
It’s where my family can relax and chill
It’s more than a just a house atop of the hill
When I’m at home, there’s nothing to be feared
But the most important thing: it’s where the water doesn’t taste weird
