Lyrics

Where I Belong

Written By: Jessica Benini

Capo 2: Key of D
Verse 1
C Am G C
Oh Victoria it’s just you and me
I’ve been here this long it’s hard to believe
And I can’t quite figure out what I want to do
I guess I’ll just stay here just me and just you

I walk down your streets and sometimes call out your name
I go downtown to stores and look through the window pane
But I can’t afford to buy anything
Cus I’m not a millionaire I just work all day and sing

Chorus
I want to sing you a sweet love song
Vancouver Island your where I belong
I think I’ll leave those crab and prawn traps alone
Don’t want to lose my boat or get shot going home

Verse 2
Sometimes I wonder what draws me near to you
You’re really beautiful and there’s lots of green too
The ocean mist tastes so good upon my lips
And sometimes I wish the tourists would leave better tips

But I can’t complain cus I live by the sea
Where the music is loud and live and the people are free
And I am grateful for all that you have done
I live on your island and get to play in the sun

Chorus
I want to sing you a sweet love song
Vancouver Island you’re where I belong
Forests are lush and the ocean blue
I think I might become a squatter too

Verse 3
When I left Tuff city it was a rainy day
But I moved here to be with you and I made it past May
And living in Tofino I wrote a song called June
But now that I am down island this is my favorite tune

Chorus
I want to sing you a sweet love song
Vancouver Island your where I belong
I think I’ll head an hour up North
Cowichan Bay on July 24th

I want to sing you a sweet love song
Vancouver Island your where I belong
I want to play my music with soul
So here I come Islands Folk Festival!
