“Home Again”—Carole King
Written by Carole King
From Tapestry (Sony, 1971)

Though “It’s Too Late” might be a little more famous, and “You’ve Got a Friend” certainly gets covered more often, I’ve always felt that the piano ballad “Home Again” is the emotional center of Carole King’s classic Tapestry album. It begins with a starkly direct confession:

Sometimes I wonder if I’m ever gonna make it home again
It’s so far and out of sight
