Feels Like Home-Chantal Kreviazuk

On a list of “Top 10” wedding first dances, Randy Newman’s “Feels Like Home”  would definitely make the cut. Just read the lyrics. The most poignant line for me is “It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong.”  Here’s my personal opinion, without getting too corny about it: people should wait to get married until they truly feel that they have found the one person who makes them feel that they truly belong.  It’s definitely a good place to start, right? And this song is simply a beautiful valentine.

Somethin’ in your eyes makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself in your arms
There’s somethin’ in your voice makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts the rest of my life
If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I’ve been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you’ve done
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

“Feels Like Home” was written by esteemed film composer Randy Newman in 1995. It was covered by Linda Ronstadt, Sheryl Crow, Chantal Kreviazuk, as well as The Backstreet Boys. It is simply a beautiful song.

Musically, I love the way the song is arranged so the repeated chorus at the end starts to feel like a gospel choir. I’ve used this song many, many times, and it brings out the tears (in the best possible way) every time. Leave a message and let me know what you think.
