I’m smiling because I’m in Glasgow, and right now that’s exactly where I’m meant to be.
This is my home, where I belong, as I have never belonged anywhere else. Where I discovered who I really am and became my full self.
I love this city. Really, honestly, truly love it.
My bus pulled in not long ago to this infamous old town
A foreigner when I arrived, but a mutual love has grown
The beggars and the buskers beat. I weave along Sauchiehall Street
A warm smile on a stranger’s face makes me welcome in this place
Oh, I belong to Glasgow And she belongs to me
I wasn’t born and bred here, but we were meant to be
Sandstone mixes up with green amid steel and smoky hues
I squint the sun out of my eyes, watch the river run right through
A melting pot, a meeting point. Giving hope to those with none
Sharing a home with everyone
A foreign native I’ve become
