About the song

As a hospice nurse my mom frequently witnesses the elderly live out their final days on earth. She asked me to write a song to help people as they’re preparing to say goodbye to this world and reunite with their friends and family in heaven.

I hope this song gives comfort, hope, and assurance to those who have lost loved ones. Life continues on after death. Our friends and family on the other side are watching over us with love. We will see them again.

GOING HOME LYRICS

Going home, going home
I’m a going home
Quiet like some still day
I’m just going home
Ooh
Mother’s there expecting me
Father’s waiting too
Lot’s of folk gathered there
All the friends I knew

I’m going home, home, home, Ooh
This life’s been good to me
But I’m going home

Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone break of day
Real life just begun

I’m going home, home, home, Ooh
This life’s been good to me

There’s no break
Ain’t no end
Just a living on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on

It’s not far just close by
Through an open door,
Home, home, home, Ooh,
Home, home, home, Ooh
This life’s been good to me
But I’m going home
