lyrics

I was born into a big family
Grew up in an old house
At the end of a road
When my parents heard me say a bad word
They would wash my mouth out with soap
Back then, we were always trying to get out
Nowadays I never have time to stay

Every place is someone else’s home
You can’t change your family
Or where you came from
When I get to feeling lost and alone
I remember every place is someone else’s home

If I could go back for just one day
See my family the way we used to be
I’d tell the little girl who I was then
You won’t believe who one day you’re going to be

Every place is someone else’s home
You can’t change your family
Or where you came from
When I get to feeling lost and alone
I remember every place is someone else’s home

The dusty sunlight is shining through the windowsill
On faded photographs in picture frames sitting still
Well, I would like to stay awhile
I would like to stay awhile
I would like to stay awhile
Stay awhile

Every place is someone else’s home
You can’t change your family
Or where you came from
When I get to feeling lost and alone
I remember every place is someone else’s home
I remember every place is someone else’s home
