This is home.

26 Jan

I haven’t been able to listen to this song by Switchfoot without crying for two days now. It sums up exactly how I feel about my conversion, and my upbringing in the Protestant church. Listen and enjoy.

I’ve got my memories
Always inside of me
But I can’t go back
Back to how it was
I believe you now
I’ve come too far
No I can’t go back
Back to how it was

Created for a place I’ve never known

This is home
Now I’m finally where I belong
Where I Belong
Yeah, this is home
I’ve been searching for a place of my own
Now I’ve found it
Maybe this is home
This is home

Belief over misery
I’ve seen the enemy
And I won’t go back
Back to how it was
And I got my heart set on what happens next
I got my eyes wide it’s not over yet
We are miracles and we’re not alone


And now after all my searching
After all my questions
I’m gonna call it home
I’ve got a brand new mindset
I can finally see the sunset
I’m gonna call it home


Now I know
Yeah, this is home
I’ve come too far
And I won’t go back
Yeah, this is home

    The lyrics are beautiful! A song with a similar text meant a lot for me in my conversion proces. I wrote a blogpost about it (

      I love Switchfoot! I really like how their songs are applicable to faith but also friendships and relationships too.

      And you’re so close to being fully home! Only a few more months!

    What a beautiful expression of your faith! I really love some of Switchfoot’s songs too, especially “Gone” since I’m a historian. I can’t wait to read about the rest of your conversion experience 🙂
