The lyrics are expressing a doubt the woman has
When the evening falls
And the daylight is fading,
From within me calls
Could it be I am sleeping?
Shortly after falling asleep she feels that she has gone away
For a moment I stray,
Then it holds me completely
Close to home - I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away
From these lyrics we can understand that she is dreaming about that house, while she calls it "home".
The moment the woman finds the house, she recognizes the place
I am home - I know the way
I am home - feeling oh, so far away
