Coming home after your exchange is hard. And songs help deal with hard situations. Here are 7 songs that relate to the feelings that surround the internal conflict that is coming home after your exchange.

1. What you and your fellow exchangers feel at the end of the year

But still it´s farewell
And maybe we´ll come back
To earth, who can tell

Will life ever be the same again?
It´s the final countdown¨

2. About already wanting to go back
Summer paradise – Simple Plan

¨And I can’t believe I’m leaving, ooh, I don’t kno-kno-know what I’m gonna do
But someday, I will find my way back to where your name, is written in the sand

‘Cause I remember every sunset, I remember every word you said
We were never gonna say goodbye, yeah, singing la-la-ta-ta-ta
Tell me how to get back to, back to summer paradise with you¨

And I’ll be there in a heartbeat

3. About how it will not be the same
Mama, I’m coming home – Ozzy Osbourne

“Here I come, but I ain’t the same”

4. About having a new home
Home again – The Disco Biscuits

“Never had a home like this,
And the prophets said, ‘Be careful what you wish.’
Never had to think twice,
Always knew my home was in paradise”

5. About ending your exchange
I was here  – Beyoncé

¨I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here¨

6. When you meet someone who knows what you have been through
Keep your head up – Ben Howard

“Now I saw a friend of mine, the other day,
And he told me that my eyes were gleamin’.
Oh I said I’d been away, and he knew…
Oh he knew the depths I was meanin’.
And it felt so good to see his face,
All the comfort invested in my soul,
Oh to feel the warmth, of his smile,
When he said, ‘I’m happy to have you home’.
Oh oh-oh, I’m happy to have you home.”

7. About feeling like a stronger person after your exchange
Coming home – Diddy

“I’m back where I belong,
Yeah I never felt so strong
(I’m back baby)
I feel like there’s nothing that I can’t try


I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home, I’m coming home
Tell the world that I’m coming”
