I need a place to call home

by Rob

I live in this tent on the side of the road
I never thought I would be here
My room used to be in a house on a hill
With a cat and a dog and a fish

I’ m happy to rent because I cannot buy
I just need some money and clothes to apply
I used to have friends who put in a good word
But now all I have are some worms

I think that I’m sick
that I just might just die
I look for that house in the sky
Where there’s many rooms
For my cat dog and fish
And one just for me that’s my wish 

I need a place to call home
I need a place to call home
I need a home that’s a safe place to be
I need a home where I can be free
I need just one possibility
To start a new life
