Style: Soul Melting

What’s the Story: Kiwanuka just makes you want to lean on his shoulder, his stirring words invoke a feeling of sadness. Rather than purging your problems with a good cry, throw on “Home Again”, and hang with your new mate Michael.

You May Know this Line: “One day I know I will be home again.”
