Home Is Where My Heart Is 


I like to walk down Hastings St and see familiar faces

From Heatley street to Abbott street and all my special places

The Downtown Eastside community is very special to me

For people lying elsewhere they don't get what I see

Volunteering when I can, I love to help my peers

Sometimes doing harm reduction or drying someones tears

Even though we've come so far we still have a ways to go

To show we're all good people not garbage that you throw!
