Home is wherever I am with you – Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

Quite possibly the simplest of sentences are those that carry the most weight. Edward Sharpe could not have defined the notion of love any less innocently or sweetly than they do in the lyrics of their beautiful song. What if though, you didn’t have a “you”. Therefore you would not then have a home to come back to. I am struggling to comes to terms with my impending departure from London to go back to Australia. Whenever I mention to friends & family that I am returning I deliberately leave out the words “coming home”. I don’t feel like I have such a thing in my life at present. I am stuck, lost,wandering with no direction. The thing I am struggling with the most though is that I am yet to find a “you”. My faith is running at an all time low. Mainly due to the fact that I met someone not very long ago that I thought could be something. Not a “you” but at the very least a hey you in the morning though sleepy eyes & a goodnight you sealed with a kiss. Until then though, I don’t think I will ever get tired of listening to Jade & Alexander profess their love in the music of Edward Sharpe.

Well, holy moly me oh my
You’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh, man, you’re my best friend
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothing that I need

Home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you
