Well I left my home in a Scotia town Moved out west where I'd be found Dreamin' well I'm dreamin' Well I never thought my life would change Always thought it'd be the same But leaving I'm still believing
That childhood dream I'll have someday Slowly starts to fade away I'm seeing So very close I could almost taste Seems those years have been a waste Decieving it's been decieving
Time has past but I still feel The ocean breeze it seems so real I'm hoping, just hoping Someday soon if it all works out Nova Scotia is where I'm bound Believing, I'm still believing I'll hear the waves against the shore Seagulls cries at the fishing warf I'm hearing The mackerel runs and the dory boats The simple ways I love the most I'm dreamin' just dreamin'
I see her when I close my eyes The Scotia land I once despised Longing, just longing It's been ten years or more it seems But I've still got my memories I'm holdin', just holding Through the years I've wondered why The grass seemed greener on the other side But I'm learning When I set my feet on that Scotia ground Then I know I've surely found The meaning, the meaning
Well it don't matter where I go 'Cause in my heart my Scotia home is waitin' Just waiting Good Lord knows I regret the day I packed it up and moved away But someday, maybe somday I'm dreaming just dreaming Believing I'm still believing Lord I'm hoping, I'm hoping Yeah believing, I'm still believing
