Motley Crue Home Sweet Home Lyrics

Last updated: 01/30/2014 05:56:22 PM

You know I'm a dreamer
But my heart's of gold
I had to run away high
So I wouldn't come home low

Just when things went right
Doesn't mean they were always wrong
Just take this song and you'll never feel
Left all alone

Take me to your heart
Feel me in your bones
Just one more night
And I'm comin' off this
Long & winding road

I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home
Tonight, tonight
I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home

You know that I've seen
Too many romantic dreams
Up in lights, fallin' off the silver screen

My heart's like an open book
For the whole world to read
Sometimes nothing keeps me together at the seams

I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home
Tonight, tonight
I'm on my way
Just set me free
Home Sweet Home
Home Sweet Home
Home Sweet Home
Home Sweet Home

I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home Sweet Home
I'm on my way
Just set me free
Home Sweet Home

ROCKS! | Reviewer: Teresa | 1/30/14

This songs melody and tune and lyrics just are rocking!!!! This song takes me back to the 80's when I was wild and free!!! Even though they are anouncing their "farewell tour" this band will rock forever!!!

UM. | Reviewer: Dijji | 12/16/11

If you're a "real" Crue fan, you should know the Heroin Diaries isn't the real Sixx. It's stuck up, washed up, Nikki Sixx begging for attention. If you were a real fan, you'd already know that Sixx wrote nearly every Motley song. The songs about whatever you want it to be about. Jeez.

Just so you know | Reviewer: Jeffrey Gonzalez | 12/16/11

I just want you all to know, your all crazy, I'm a young Crue fan (only 20) but This song was written by Tommy Lee, not Nikki, This song is finally lets go home after being gone for so long, and frankly just take it your own way. To me it means lets finally get our peace of mind that we really really want.

It's not about what Nikki says... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/8/11

It's about how you feel the song. When a song is given to an audience each one of the listeners gives it a meaning, so instead of trying to find what was the author reason to write the song just feel it and turn it into another piece of your life!

... | Reviewer: Another Jake | 1/12/10

and then as a Crüe fan you would know that this song was written circa 1985 which was when Nikki was on his ride down to the bottom. he wasnt the reclusive, paranoid, junkie mess we see in the Heroin Diaries just yet. i personally think this song is about Nikki being on the road and just wanting to have a normal home life. because in the Heroin Diaries he mentioned how during the Shout At The Devil he would write letters to his aunt and uncle telling them how much he missed them and how much he wanted to be "Home Sweet Home"

The TRUE Meaning of Home Sweet Home | Reviewer: Jake | 11/24/09

Alright. As all Crue fans know, Nikki Sixx was there main songwriter. Read his book, "The Heroin Diaries." It is about his life when the band was at their peak, and he was at rock-bottom. He talks about after he crashed from a high, all he wanted was someone with him,(as he was EXTREMELY paranoid after he came down) and to be at "Home Sweet Home."

Really awesome song | Reviewer: Andreas | 7/5/09

Meaning of "Home Sweet Home" | Reviewer: Richard M | 5/22/09

The first verse reminds me of recovery, the second verse reminds me of just going home after a long hard tour. Either way, this song is incredibly well written--the chords are so perfect and the melody is beautiful and poignant. Carrie Underwood did a super version of this song for "American Idol." I like that she didn't "country" it up but stayed true to its roots. This is a true rock classic.

Meaning of "HOME SWEET HOME" | Reviewer: peanutprints | 4/10/09

Just so that everyone knows, this song is not about home or coming home. If you read the book then you will clearly understand that "home sweet home" is about being SOBER. Home is sober. They went thru alot of shit with drugs, alcohol and very personal family issues. They are like everyone else in life and fight the same demons we do.

Home Sweet Home | Reviewer: Cattwmn | 4/3/09

It's not about a 'one night stand', it's about getting control back of his/their own lives after a 'forced march' on tour. The 'freedom' of not having to repack and dash to the airport, dash from the airport, another hotel, another city, another concert. Day after day, after day. For months. Much like "Turn The Page" - 'Here I am, on the road again, Here I am, up on stage. There I go, playing rock star again. Here I am, turn the page.

It's not all glitz and glamour. It's hard. Your life is not your own till the contract is complete.

meaning | Reviewer: marie | 1/20/09

im sure home sweet home has to do with the band making their way home after touring but listing to it ,it sounds like hes singing about his daughter who died when she was 9 . "im on my way ,just set me free home sweet home.. " or is it just me?lol

Old times | Reviewer: Sara | 10/5/08

Hi! When I was 15 I loved this band and this song and I was in concert in Helsinki. Now, it is amazing that my daughter who is now 13 years old loves this song! she is just learning to play it in piano.... she didn´t knew that I was a fan of motley crue. From mother to a daughter :) regards from Finland

Interpretation of "Home Sweet Home" | Reviewer: Maureen | 8/21/08

My take on this song is that he is lonely on the road and missing that feeling of love and comfort, so he will substitute a one night stand to fulfill that need. It makes him feel like he is "Home Sweet Home".

Does Anyone Read The Lyrics?? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/22/08

Okay I know that everyone gets their own meaning out of this song. I at one time thought it to be the same as almost everyone else. But it is about sadness and disappointment in the life back home but it will always be home sweet home. Really really listen and feel the lyrics. It isnt about the safety and love, he is a dreamer who has lost love more than once and it is something that he wants from back home that he is finding on the road. You can disagree if you want but everyone has their take on it. Look at the other perspective

Amazing! | Reviewer: Rocket_Queen | 2/23/08

I miss my home... I'm from Sicily but now I live so far from there... I miss my family, I miss my frieds, I miss my sea... I miss everything and this song reminds me a lot of things when I was very young and happy.
God, I want to return back home...
Amazing song. One of the best also only for the memories that it give me and all the cried!
