  • The farther I get from home
    the more I see what a Canadian is
    or at least what he isn't.
    I'm changing my lakes, my family & friends
    living under Spanish skies next to Spanish seas.
    I'll always be the kid from Belleville
    (just the way it's got to be)
    but in the middle of all my past lives
    somewhere on a highway in southern Ontario
    I knew I'd always be a visitor, and that
    the only home I'll ever have
    will never be the place I want to live.
