The place referred to in the title is a matter of speculation. [[Terra (Final Fantasy IX)|Terra]], being the [[Genome (Final Fantasy IX)|Genomes]]' birthplace, is likely to be "the place Zidane would return to someday," referring to one of the translations of the theme's title. This is supported by "Oeilvert", "Ipsen's Heritage" ([[Ipsen's Castle]]'s theme) and "The Four Medallions" (also played in Ipsen's Castle) being rearranged versions of "The Place I'll Return to Someday", as both places are connected to Terra. The eponymous theme of the world of Terra is also a variation of "The Place I'll Return to Someday".

Within the game itself, "a place to call home" is what Zidane describes [[Vivi Ornitier|Vivi]] is looking for during their visit to the [[Black Mage Village]]. In [[Pandemonium (Final Fantasy IX)|Pandemonium]], [[Garland (Final Fantasy IX)|Garland]] says to Zidane that "You are destined to live among the stars for all eternity. You have the power, the position, and the motive to do it," to which Zidane replies "I wouldn't want that kind of power... if I only had a place to call home... My brothers in [[Tantalus Theater Troupe|Tantalus]], Vivi, [[Freya Crescent|Freya]], [[Amarant Coral|Amarant]], [[Quina Quen|Quina]], [[Adelbert Steiner|Steiner]], [[Eiko Carol|Eiko]], and... [[Garnet Til Alexandros XVII|Dagger]]... My home is with them in [[Gaia (Final Fantasy IX)|Gaia]]!", suggesting that the place referred to within the title "A Place to Call Home" is in, fact, Gaia.
