The Maccabeats - Home (Medley) - Israel

The Maccabeats, an all-male Orthodox Jewish a cappela group, was founded at Yeshiva University in New York in 2007.

Most of their songs are released around the times of the Jewish holidays, and the group has produced three albums and performed worldwide, including in such venues as the Knesset and White House where President Barack Obama praised the group for their “outstanding performance.” In addition to their other festive songs and various parodies, the group has written one piece in honor of Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s proclamation of independence.

Home (Medley)

Been a lot of places,
I've been all around the world,
Seen a lot of faces,
Never know where I was.
On the horizon and I know I know I know
Sun will be rising back home.
No, we won't forget where we came from,
The city won't change us.
We beat to the same drum.
No, we won't forget where we came from.
The city won't change us,
We beat to the same drum.
Don't forget where you belong.
I'm going home, to the place where I belong.
Don't forget where you belong.
I'm going home.
No, you think you got me all wrong.
I’m going home to the place where I belong.
Just hold on we're going home
Where your love has always been enough.
You say that it's hard to commit to it.
You say that it's hard standing still.
Don't you know that I spend all my nights counting backwards
The days til I'm home?
If only . . .
