"Coming Home"

2013 Festival Music Video

Lyrics

Verse 1:
Busy streets, Flashing lights
Sea of people passing by
Can’t believe how far I’ve come

The way things used to be
Those distant memories
Make it hard to call this place my home

PreChorus 1:
But I know someday soon
I’ll be back once again

Chorus 1:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

And I know
I’m coming home

Verse 2:
Looking down from above
On that sacred land I love
With open arms waiting there for me

See the smile upon her face
Feel the warmth of sweet embrace
That’s the pride that keeps me holding on

PreChorus:
And I knew someday soon
I’d be home once again

Chorus 2:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

And I know
I’m coming home

Bridge (Instrumental Break)

Chorus 3:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

Chorus 4:
That endless countryside
Under Okchamali skies
Cause that’s the place I  know that I belong

Oh to feel that summer wind
It takes me back again
To open fields where I used to run

And I know
I’m coming home

Outro:
So proud to call this place my home
