lyrics

if I play for one
I play for all
from this truth, I cannot stray

fill this empty space
with what my soul creates
let this mind just fall away

I don't need to find one way to go
all I need is love, open sea and road
I don't need a place to call my own
when every place is home

sweeping landscape
surreal sunscape
urban faire and country rain

in the shadow
of our big dreams
we built a love that will sustain

we don't need to find one way to go
all we need is love, open sea and road
we don’t need a place to call our own
when every place is home
every place is home

picking up the pebbles, one by one
city by city, touched by love
distance calls us forward, out to land and sea
we'll roam this whole wide world, just you and me
every place is home

we don't need to find one way to go
all we need is love, open sea and road
every place is home
every place is home
every place is home
every place is home
