Home is the song from the Season 2 episode, All's Fair, shown by J.B. King through the The Picture Machine. The song is shown as a means to help J.B. King find and beleive that Mr. Conductor is real and wants to meet him; however, no matter how hard he tries to find him, it never happens. The song's meaning and theme is based on homesick, and once coming home is happy to be there. The song is sung by Roger Whittaker.
Quiet fireside, doors that open wide
Smiles that welcome me home
Hands that take my hand, hearts that understand
What it means to be home
All the wandering and the wondering
Where could I find
That little world of love I saw
So clear in my mind?
Now it’s here at last, all my troubles passed
Nevermore I’ll have to roam
I’m home, I’m home
All the happiness with those you care for
When you finally know what you’re there for
And it’s wonderful how suddenly
You’re in the place where you belong
All the sharing that makes life worth living
And the pleasure you get ‘cause you’re giving
And it’s wonderful how all at once you’re
Where you wished for all along
