Lyrics for “This is My Home”
From sea to sea a tapestry of colour, shapes and sounds
We’re a people bound together by the visions we have found.
From place to place, face to face we share this common bond;
It’s a feeling lying deep within where only dreams belong.
Et quand on partage un rêve on va beaucoup plus loin
Viens plus loins prends ma main tout un pays se rejoint.
On est chez nous au Canada
Chez nous partout au Canada oh Canada
A quiet street a city’s beat that’s where the feeling starts;
And homeward bound the sweetest sound is the music from the heart.
It’s here where you realize the heart and home are one
Canada, Canada – we’re your daughters we’re your sons!
This is my home oh Canada
This is my home oh Canada oh Canada
