There's rain and fog,
a cool breeze that keeps constantly blowin',
Six months of winter every year;
But I love this rock and
all of the good things we got,
There's peace and beauty everywhere.

It's the way that we are that keeps
more and more folks comin' back,
There's just somethin' about this island they say,
that's a fact.

I was born in this place, I grew up, moved away,
I came back, 'cause there's no place like home;
It's the air that we breathe,
it's the wind from the sea,
It's a fact, 'cause there's no place like home.

I won't forget that feeling of headin' out west,
Leavin' friends and family behind;
Small coves, harbours and bays
are never too far away,
When home is always on your mind.

Through five hundred years of history
we have been blessed,
What the Atlantic has given
and taken we never forget.

I was born in this place, I grew up, moved away,
I came back, 'cause there's no place like home;
It's the air that we breathe,
it's the wind from the sea,
It's a fact, 'cause there's no place like home.

Surrounded by water, this island stands on its own,
There's nowhere else like it,
I'm proud to call it my home.

I was born in this place, I grew up, moved away,
I came back, 'cause there's no place like home;
It's the air that we breathe,
it's the wind from the sea,
It's a fact, 'cause there's no place like home.

I was born in this place, I grew up, moved away,
I came back, 'cause there's no place like home;
It's the air that we breathe,
it's the wind from the sea,
It's a fact, 'cause there's no place like home.

There's rain and fog, ooh but I love this rock!

I wrote this song with my good friend Des Gambin. We wrote it as a tribute to the island we call home.
