​Far From My Home

This song is by The Burns Sisters and appears on the album In This World (1997).

Living in the city on these dirty streets
Sometimes it's so hard to believe
The price I would pay when I walked away
For a life I thought was free
Well, I chased my dreams across the ocean blue,
Across mountains, rivers and seas
When I close my eyes
I can't stop thinking about she way it used to be

I'm far from my home,
Far from the friends I've known
But every song I sing is leading me back,
Back to the time,
Leading me back to my home

Down on Leroy Street, where we used to live
In a house so big and so strong,
We'd spend our days in endless play,
Sheltered from the storm
We were so many children and so many friends
There was always someone knocking at the door
And, if you came with troubles, my mother would say,
There's always room for more

I'm far from my home,
Far from the friends I've known
But I have you here, deep in my memory
Inside my heart
You are a part of me

And when the world outside comes crashing down
When I can't keep from crying
I know I'll find my way in dreams of yesterday
I still can call you my own

I'm far from my home,
Far from the friends I've known
But every song I sing is leading me back,
Back to the time, leading me back
I'm far from my home,
When the cold wind chills to the bone
I have you here, deep in my memory
Inside my heart
You are a part of me
