Home Is Where The Heart Is

Home is where the heart is
That's what I've heard folks say
No matter where you roam
No matter where you stay.

You may leave your home
When you are just a child
And travel this world over
Or go a thousand miles.

But home it never leaves you
For it is in your heart
It's where you first began
It's where you got your start.

The house may be torn down
Or sold to someone else
But if you close your eyes 
You'll remember how it felt.

Home is where the heart is 
And that feeling never dies
Woven deep inside your heart
Is where home really lies.
