 In 1995 Randy Newman wrote the words and music to a song, Feels Like Home. The tempo is moderately slow with 4/4 time signature, played in the Key of D. Here is the chord chart to this special song.

C F C    C F C

C         G       C                     G      Gsus G
Something in your eyes makes me want to lose myself 
                 F                    C  F  C   G
Makes me want to lose myself in your arms 
C            G            C               G           Gsus G
There's something in your voice makes my heart beat fast 
          F
Hope this feeling lasts 
               C    G
The rest of my life 
       Em       F         C    E7  Am
If you knew how lonely my life has been

       Em         F                 C    E7 Am                  
If you knew how I wanted someone to come along 
    F         C                   G  Gsus G
And change my life the way you've done 
           C                     G
Feels like home to me Feels like home to me 
               F   C       D7                 G                    
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
           C                     G
Feels like home to me Feels like home to me 
               F   C       D7         G    C   F  C
Feels like I'm alI the way back where I belong 

SOLO

C     G  C             G 
A window breaks down a long dark street 
      F                  C    F C  G
And a siren walls in the night 
C       G  C                     G
But I'm alright cause I have you here with me 
          F                                   C  G
And I can almost see through the dark there's light 
       Em        F               C     E7 Am
If you knew how much this moment means to me 
        F         C               G Gsus  G
And how long I've waited for your touch 
       Em       F             C  E7  Am
If you knew how happy you are making me 
     F                 C              G
I've never thought I'd love anyone so much
           C                     G
Feels like home to me Feels like home to me 
               F   C       D7                 G                    
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
           C                     G
Feels like home to me Feels like home to me 
               F   C       D7         G    C   F C
Feels like I'm alI the way back where I belong 
               F   C       D7         G    C   F C  C F C
Feels like I'm alI the way back where I belong
