And Home We Make

Shut the door behind you


Leave tonight


Because you can 


because you have to


-


That familiar narrow path that leads to your house


never leads you home


Because people follow you 


and people know you around


-


Drive to a place so far away


drive your mind and learn to play


Head to where you have never been


Go & meet strangers you feel you have seen


-


Cover the fog, shape it with art


Believe today is going to tear you apart


You need to go through whatever it is


You need to break it to find one piece



One minute only


to start a new life


A thousand reasons


will trap you behind


-


They'll lock you in buildings 


they'll challenge your dreams


but they'll never find out


where your real home is


-


For home is a person


and home is your heart


and home we make


part by part.


-


Shut all that has been


There is no door


Home is your shadow


That's what it's for.
