lyrics

From California, to the eastern shore
Oh Seattle, oh Baltimore
From the windy deserts, to the barren North
Bangkok, Toronto, Beirut, New York

Oh how I owe you, more than you know
Your strange affections, my compass home
In the halls and causeways, far from our homes
We've given life to dead cells and bones

So in your troubles, God send you care
Your hour of darkness, send vision there
For I did need you, since I left my home
Oh Pennsylvania, six years ago
