Story

This is the first song I wrote when I moved from California to Minnesota to be with Ken (2006).  I was born and raised in Midwest (Minnesota and Michigan) and after being in California for 20 years was reminded that California doesn't have things like cardinals or fireflies... This song is a rediscovery of the things that made the midwest HOME for me.

Lyrics

I ‘M HOME

I know when I’m Home – when the cardinal sings

I know when I’m Home -  when the geese take wing

I know when I’m Home – when the river flows

I know when I’m Home – when the corn grows up in rows

     On the Prairie lands   -     In the White Pine Stands

 

I know when I’m Home – when the lightning fills the sky

I know when I’m Home – watching the fireflies

I know when I’m Home – when the trees are green

I know when I’m Home – when I’m free to dream

     Thunder Roars    -    The Eagle Soars

 

I know when I’m Home -  when the leaves turn gold

I know when I’m Home – when the air gets cold

 I know when I’m Home – when the snowflakes blow

I know when I’m Home -  when kindness flows

     Lakes are Fresh -    Just take a breath

 

I know when I’m Home – when I yearn for you no more

I know when I’m Home – when I’m standing at your door

      My Spirit Flies     -    As the Norh wind sighs

      I'm on stable ground     -    My heart is found

               I know when I’m Home –

               I know when I’m Home –
