Martin Gore in Bong issue no. 37, 1998: "It’s got a great atmosphere and a great string arrangement."

Martin Gore said in a Mexican magazine called Revolution in early 2010:

"To be honest that song was written at a pretty dark period in my life when I was recognising the amount that I was depending on alcohol to fill my daily existence. I saw that my whole lifestyle was being affected by that fact and I think the song was a way of recording my "resignation" at the situation."

During a 'TimesTalks' conference in March 2017, an audience member asked Martin Gore about this song:

Q: A very special song to me is 'Home'. Could you talk a little bit about how that came about, [and] what's behind it, the meaning?

Martin Gore: ... ehm...

Andy Fletcher: I know what he's gonna say.

Martin: Do you? Do you want- please!

Andy: Well I always thought it was about home, going home, etcetera etcetera, and then Martin said, "It's not about that, it's about death." Is that true?

Martin: Kind of, yeah. I mean, I was going through a very dark period at that time, and I had just imagined that I was heading for an early grave, and kind of accepting that at that point.
