"Home, Sweet Home"(はるかなる故郷, Haruka naru furusato?, lit. A Distant Home), also known as "My Home, Sweet Home" or "Far-Distant Hometown," is a theme from Final Fantasy V. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.
"Home, Sweet Home" plays as the background theme for the town of Lix, Bartz Klauser's hometown. It also plays during his flashbacks when he and his comrade Warriors of Light visit his hometown.
The arranged version of the "Home, Sweet Home" by TOSE for Final Fantasy V Advance is included in the limited Final Fantasy Finest Box collection. It is the thirty-first track of the collections' second disc, which is analogous to the game's original soundtrack's first disc.
"My Home, Sweet Home" makes an appearance as a bonus battle theme. It must be purchased in the PP Catalog before being used, and once purchased it may be picked by default in all modes for battles against Bartz, Exdeath, or Gilgamesh, or taking place at the Interdimensional Rift.
The Final Fantasy V: Dear Friends album features a vocal arrangement of "My Home, Sweet Home," named "Harukanaru Kokyou." It is sung in a mix of English and Saami, an indigenous language spoken in the northern parts of Scandinavia.
What do you think is being sung by this mysterious song? Think carefully, looking at the words while listening... You will probably be able to understand the beautiful poem. The [duet] by the two is amazing.

Final Fantasy: Love Will Grow features a vocal arrangement of "My Home, Sweet Home," named "Harukanaru Kokyou" as well. This version is technically written in Japanese, although it is sung as if the Romaji were spelled inversely (i. e. from right to left). The song is mostly fragments of sentences, of which only a rough English translation can be rendered.
