"You're My Home" is a single by Billy Joel. It was originally on Billy Joel's 1973 album Piano Man, and also appears on Songs in the Attic (1981), The Ultimate Collection (2000) The Essential Billy Joel (2001) and 12 Gardens Live (2006). The song appears as a B-side on "Piano Man" and "All My Life" singles. The song was also covered by Helen Reddy on her album Love Song for Jeffrey, which was released as the flipside of her "Keep On Singing" single. It was also recorded by Sami Jo Cole on her album Sami Jo produced by Jimmy Bowen.
The song was written for Joel's first wife (and business manager) Elizabeth Weber because he could not afford to buy her anything while in California. They had moved from New York to California hoping to get out of a contract that Joel had signed with the record producer Artie Ripp of Family Productions in New York (1971).
As Joel says in the liner notes of Songs in the Attic, "Corny but true; I was broke at the time ('73) so I wrote this for my wife as a Valentine's Day gift".
The version from Songs in the Attic was released as a single in Australia and as a promotional-only release in UK.
The song was used to wake up astronauts aboard space shuttle mission STS-132 in May 2010. The song was selected for astronaut Kenneth Ham.
