about

‘I Belong to the World’ does what it says on the box…. The only barriers are those which are placed around us by others, or those that we construct around ourselves.

The song was conceived by Deborah Eckman in Vancouver, Canada, on a long bus journey, watching the world go by…..

lyrics

I belong to no-one, no place
I belong to the world
I want nothing, no trace
Of possession in my world
I belong to no-one, no place
I belong to the world
Let me breathe let me fly
Soar way up there where the birds touch the sky

‘Cos I belong to no-one, no place
I belong to the world
If you ask me where is home
Then I really don’t know
I belong to no-one, nowhere
And I really don’t care
I belong to no-one, nowhere
Only need blue skies and air
To breathe, to fly
Way up there where I’m higher than the life I’ve known
And no-one can own….. me

I belong to no-one, no place
I belong to the world
I want nothing, no trace
Of possession in my world
Treat me kind, treat me sweet
And I’ll do all I can to meet your needs
But don’t stifle me with your rules and schemes
Or you’ll smother my dreams
I need to breathe
Just let me breathe

‘Cos I belong to no-one, no place
I belong to the world
I want nothing, no trace
Of possession in my world
I belong to no-one, no place, I belong to the world
