Lyrics

When I look for direction you're always there
My number one critic and fan;
When I'm failing and lost; don't know where to turn
When life re-directs from my plan...

'cos we all come back to the place that we know
And we all come back and stand
Just to hear your words come tumbling out,
And it's then we understand...

When I lose my identity and don't know,
The person that I have become
When decisions are made on the toss of coins,
And the consequences seem ignored

'cos we all come back to the place that we know
And we all come back and stand
Just to hear your words come tumbling out,
And it's then we understand...

And as life moves so quickly, it's hard to keep up,
With the changes that come on demand.
So I call on my judgement, as best I can
Hoping luck will hold my hand...

'cos we all come back to the place that we know
And we all come back and stand
Just to hear your words come tumbling out,
And it's then we understand...

INSTRUMENTAL

'cos we all come back to the place that we know
And we all come back and stand
Just to hear your words come tumbling out,
And it's then we understand...

'cos we all come back to the place that we know
And we all come back and stand
Just to hear your words come tumbling out,
And it's then we understand...

When I look for direction,
I'll always,
Come home...

Catchy melody and song. I happened to be in a room with my family while listening to this and most everyone thought the reference of going back to the place that we know was either god or to church. If that's the intention, you did a really good job referencing it without actually saying it.

Singers voice was very good as was the songwriting- the harmony/melody and lyric all went well together in tone and style. The song is very memorable.

This is what its all about.....

Listen to this combination: a well composed hooky melody where the two distinct changes in stanzas fit the mood of the lyrics, from uncertain wandering about to the certainty of coming back to the familiar. The place we know is a new and unique way of saying that a certain soul mate or close person is home. These are elements of songwriting that make for a great song. Nicely done!

Wow, great melodic structure here, like the "modern" rock vibe! One thing about the vocal (which is great BTW) is it seems to clash a bit in this mix with the percussion high ends, and I'd like to hear the current vocal just a bit more INTIMATE, which would make this a VERY GREAT TUNE, rather than just a great one. Can be accomplish in a better mix, without resing....
