Land   Verenigde Staten

Gladys maakte in 1961 voor het eerst naam met Every Beat of My Heart met haar neven, die de groep The Pips vormden. Alhoewel ze nog een paar hits had, werd ze pas echt beroemd nadat ze voor het label Tamla Motown ging werken. Tot de bescheiden hits van de groep behoorden I Heard It Through the Grapevine, If I Were Your Woman. Nog groter succes bracht de overstap naar Buddah Records in 1973. In het midden van de jaren zeventig piekte de populariteit van de groep met Midnight Train to Georgia en I've Got to Use My Imagination en The Only And only



In 1989 zong ze solo de soundtrack van de gelijknamige James Bondfilm Licence to Kill.



Ze toert nog steeds, en neemt af en toe ook nog op, hoewel The Pips niet meer bestaan. Haar bijnaam is: Empress of Soul.


Songtekst

Home is where the heart is
When I spread my wings and flew away
Spread my wings and flew away
I left my heart with you

Home is where the heart is
When I spread my wings and flew away
Spread my wings and flew away
I left my heart with you

Whether my feet are walking (Walking, walking)
Down the dusty roads of Jackson
Or the star-studded pavement of L.A. (Walking, walking)
Mmm (Walking, walking)

Honey, I find my thoughts are turning
I go home and the feet are yearning
For a nest I left a thousand miles away

'Cause home is where the heart is
Not the towns I'm drivin' in new

And when I spread my wings (Spread my wings) and flew away (Flew away)
I left my heart with you (I left my heart with you)
And when I spread my wings (Spread my wings) and flew away (Flew away)
I left my heart with you

Home is where the heart is
When I spread my wings and flew away

Whether my eyes are gazing (Gazing, gazing)
At the lovely sights of Paris
Or the beauty of the seven hills of Rome (Gazing, gazing)
(Gazing, gazing)

Honey, I find my true emotion
Like the eb-tide of the ocean
Reaching back to embrace the shores of home

Home is where the heart is
Not the sight of my eyes kept you

And when I spread my wings (Spread my wings) and flew away (Flew away)
I left my heart with you (I left my heart with you)
And when I spread my wings (Spread my wings) and flew away (Flew away)
I left my heart with you

Yeaheaheah, your love was a bridge
Oh, that I've burnt after I crossed it
No, no, no, no, heyeyey, I never knew
What I had until I lost it

Ooohooo (Ooohooo)
Ooohooo (Ooohooo)
OoohoooOoohooo

Whether my arms holding (Holding, holding)
Someone new remembers
Or I'm kissing someone new in Buffalo (Kissing, kissing)
(Kissing, kissing)

Honey, I find my feeling's driven
Like a piece I didn't fit in
True, I feel a weight, now I'm used to grow

Home is where the heart is
Not the thrill of someone new

Ohoho, when I spread my wings (Spread my wings) and flew away (Flew away)
I left my heart with you (I left my heart with you)
And when I spread my wings (Spread my wings) and flew away (Flew away)
I left my heart with you

Home is where the heart is (Yeaheah)
When I spread my wings and flew away
Spread my wings and flew away

Home is where the heart is (Not the towns that I've been through)
When I spread my wings and flew away
Spread my wings and flew away
I left my heart with you (Oh, I gotta go home)

Home is where the heart is (Not the sights my eyes can see)
When I spread my wings and flew away (Yeah)
Spread my wings and flew away
I left my heart with you

Home is where the heart is
