Home is where the heart is,
or so they say,
if home is where the heart is,
then my home’s with you today

With you my barriers disappear,
I throw caution away,
with you I have no fear,
my immaturity holds sway.

With you I feel invincible,
only afterwards comes doubt,
all others seem invisible
as we walk about.

So if home is where the heart is,
my home’s truly with you,
for you are where my heart is,
and I belong with you.

This piece had another verse "With you I feel/ like I can be anything/With you I feel/ like I am everything" but it didn't seem to fit. I hope you like it and post constructive criticism!
