Coming Home Part 2 by Skylar Grey

What do you think?

According to Genius.com, “Coming Home” was originally written by a group of songwriters that included Jay-Z for rapper TI as he was due to be released from jail; but when Sean Combs (AKA Puff Daddy and/or P. Diddy) heard it, he wanted it. This song was released in 2010 with Skylar Grey only singing the hook. 2 years later in 2012, Skylar Grey re-released the song as a solo part 2. 

Skylar Grey’s version of ‘Coming Home’ is about peace, forgiveness, salvation, hope. The coming home could literally mean a person returning home from a long journey or in a funeral/memorial the coming home could be referring to going home to the afterlife. Reference: musicinsideu.com

 

Lyrics

And the blood will dry
Underneath my nails
And the wind will rise up
To fill my sails

So you can doubt
And you can hate
But I know
No matter what it takes

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home
Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming

Still far away
From where I belong
But it’s always darkest
Before the dawn

So you can doubt
And you can hate
But I know
No matter what it takes

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home
Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home
Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home
