More info about “Leaving Home”
Written about more than just the physical act of leaving home, the song deals with the idea of being safe and secure in life, yet still feeling unfulfilled and craving something more. “I’m safe, but I want more; life’s fine, but it’s time that I explore” rings out in the chorus, alongside Nic Jeffrey’s gentle fingerpicking and ghostly falsettos, creating an atmosphere that is poignant, yet hopeful.
With this, Nic Jeffrey tries to persuade us that it is still possible to take a further step in our lives – to aspire to more than just a simple sense of comfort. Chasing our greatest dreams and ambitions may sometimes seem impossible, but it all starts with us leaving our comfort zones. The first step in the long road to true success and happiness is us leaving home – sometimes physically, but always emotionally.
