Is it my home here,

Is it the place called everywhere,

Is it the world where there used to be

Colourless smiles and good music,

Is it the place where we used to dance

When around bonfires there was no fence,

When the elders were telling their tales

For the Future to exhale;


Is it my home here,

Is it the place called everywhere,

Is it the village where the soil was green,

The house where a man was a king

As up and high as the sun,

As brave and proud as strong,

When his voice could break any curse,

When the nature praised his course;

Is it home here

Is it home here


Is it my home here,

Is it the place called everywhere,

Is it the land where Mum was born,

Where she could farm despite fever and sunburn

In those times of proud dresses

Flowing from queens to princesses,

When crowns were made of pure stones,

When any single chair was a throne;


Is it my home here

Is it the place called everywhere,

Is it the realm of family,

The world I used to call Harmony,

The ground where flowers would play

Happy and healthy each day…

Is it my home here,

Is it the hand men used to share.
