"Brighton's Calling"

words and music by Jonathan Findley and Alisa Inman

 

My heart is longing for a place I know,

As the wheels of time keep turning.

A place where memories will forever yearn,

And thoughts will fondly go.

Where the Cardinals soar with honor,

And the red and white run true.

Do you hear it now? Brighton's calling now;

I'll come home to you.
