Home (lyrics to my song)

Verse 1:

Oh the birds are singin’, a-singin’, a-singin’

The winds are lightly blowin’, a-blowin’, a-blowin’

And the rooster is a-crowin’, a-crowin’, a-crowin’

All day

And the leaves are fallin’, a-fallin’, a-fallin’

And adventure’s callin’, a-callin’, a-callin’

I am living the dream

Every day

Bridge:

And I pray every night that things stay this way

How the peepers peep and the fireflies play

I hope that nature will stay with me

And every night I sing this melody…

Chorus: (x2)

It’s not just the house that shelters me,

It’s the beautiful sun and the wild fir trees

Home is in the wind, and it whispers this to me:

We will stay

We will stay

We will stay

Verse 2:

And the northern lights are dancin’, a-dancin’, a-dancin;

And bonfire smoke is prancin’, a-prancin’,a-prancin’;

What a great way to fall asleep;

Every day.

And nature will stay within, within, oh-within;

So I will never be missin’, a-missin’,a-missin;

The sweet wilderness;

Anyway.

Bridge:

And I pray every night that things stay this way

How the peepers peep and the fireflies play

I hope that nature stays with me

And every night I sing this melody…

Chorus: (x2)

It’s not just the house that shelters me,

It’s the beautiful sun and the wild fir trees

Home is in the wind, and it whispers this to me:

We will stay

We will stay

We will stay
