Where I’m from

The skies are mostly gray

And we crawl out like moles from underground

When it’s a sunny day

 

And I grew up near the sea

The sea lions and me

Every spring you can hear them sing

From miles and miles away

 

That’s why no matter where I roam
I will always call it home sweet home

 

Well the house I grew up in

Was filled to the brim

With 9 lives

Chaos thrives

Much to their chagrin

 

And those I grew up with

Keep me grounded to this day

Cuz they’re not afraid to say

When they feel me start to stray

That’s why no matter where I roam

I will always call it home sweet home

 

All the times I’ve left it behind

To find a life of another kind

But, every November

I start to remember

Till it’s in the forefront of my mind

 

*(Rain is its middle name

Living there you’ll think its lame

And though it’s rare to see it snowing there

That kind of beauty can’t compare)

 

Oh no matter where I roam

I will always find it home sweet home

And though I don’t often phone

I know this other life is just on loan

 

Cuz no matter where I roam

I will always call it home sweet home

Sweet home…sweet home…
