Restart - Feels Like Home

It's been a long while since I've posted to this meme.  It's really simple.  Take the musical prompt or the lyrics and tell me a story.  You can do it verbally, photographically, musically - however the trigger gets you going.   You can do it in the comments or link to a blog article you have written.

This week I've been thinking about what makes a home.  This song is from Randy Newman's musical, Faust.  In the show it was performed by Bonnie Raitt.  Here it is sung by Bonnie Raitt with Randy Newman on the piano and the Linda Ronstadt, who was in the show as another character.

Take This Tune

Something in your eyes, makes me want to lose myself,
Makes me want to lose myself, in your arms.
There's something 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 low I've felt so long.
If you knew how I wanted someone to come along,
And change my life the way you've done.

Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I'm on my way back where I come from.
Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I'm on my way back where I belong.

A window breaks down a long dark street,
And a siren wails over my head.
But I'm all right, 'cause I have you here with me.
And I can almost see through the dark there's light.
If you knew how much this moment means to me,
And how long I've waited for your touch.
If you knew how happy you are making me --
I've never thought I'd love anyone so much.

I've added a post. I saw Trav's post. I have only played one time before. I usually don't come up with an idea, but this time I had one that seemed to fit.
