Boss wants to come home to 'sweet surrender'

- +

For so long I was out in the cold, 

And I taught myself to believe every story I told.
It was fun hanging onto the moon, heading into the sun,
But it's been too long. Now I wanna come home.
Came so close to the edge of defeat.
But I made my way in the shade, keeping out of the heat.
It was fun shooting out of the stars, looking into the sun,
But it's been too long. Now I wanna come home.
Home. Where there's nothing but sweet surrender,
To the memories from afar.
Home. To the place where the truth lies waiting.
We remember who we are ..."

The above are some of the lyrics to the song "(I want to) Come Home", written and recorded by former Beatle Paul McCartney for the 2009 film Everybody's Fine. The song is sweet and the lyrics meaningful, and I love it.
