You Don't Have To Stay In One Place

"You Don't Have To Stay In One Place" —Alex, 14

 

Every couple of years, I get good news
We're gonna go see something new
We've got a new house in a new city
I've got a new reason to feel giddy

 

I went to the hot springs in Brazil

Rode the world's biggest ferris wheel in Singapore

In Thailand I had spicy food

Now Canadian weather's what I'm looking forward to


We may move a lot

But it may prove a lot

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

 

Every couple of years, I leave family behind
The food and culture of each country is a different kind

First you're tired, then you're scared
Then things change and you find friends there

 

Born in Romania, lived in the U.S.A.

In Indonesia, went to the beach to ride the waves

In China, I stood on the Great Wall

And from the top of there I saw


We may move a lot

But it may prove a lot

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

 

We may move a lot

But it may prove a lot

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy

You don't have to stay in one place to feel happy
