Gloria Manthos / Darden Smith

It might not seem like much to you
But I’ve got a bed and a roof over my head
I’ve got my books and I’ve got this window
Where I see the sky all blue and grey and red
When I’m tired I sleep
When I’m hungry I eat
And I smoke another cigarette
I’ll make a plan one day
But I’m not there yet

The place where I belong
Might be here, but again it might be wrong
I’ll stay until I’m gone
To find the place where I belong

The ties I thought would bring me peace
Were more like daggers so I just turned away
I’m so tired of all this running
But now that I’m here I see that I need to stay
Far from the whiskey
And men and the junkies
And sin and the war machine
Just go somewhere
I can dream

The place where I belong
It might be here, but again I might be wrong
I’ll stay until I’m gone
To find the place where I belong

I want mountains and trees and the air that I breathe
And to be clean and pure and cold
I want to be safe and I want to be loved
For the beauty in my soul

In the place where I belong
I’m free, I’m whole and I’m strong
I stay until I’m gone
In the place where I belong
In the place where I belong
