Lyrics

Artie:
Far
We've been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star

Sam with Kitty:
Free
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

Kitty with New Directions (New Directions):
On the boats and on the planes
They're coming to America (They're coming to America)

Kitty with Unique and New Directions:
Never looking back again
They're coming to America

Sam (Unique):
Home (Home)
Don't it seem so far away (Don't it seem so far away)
Oh, we're traveling light today (Oh-oh)
In the eye of the storm (In the eye of the storm)
In the eye of the storm

Artie (and Kitty with New Directions):
Home (New Directions: Home)
(To a new and a shiny place)
Make our bed and we'll say our grace
(Freedom's light burning warm)
Freedom's light burning warm

New Directions:
Freedom's light burning warm

Sam with New Directions (Unique):
Everywhere around the world (Everywhere)
They're coming to America (They're coming to America)
Every time that (and Unique: flag's unfurled)
They're coming to America (Ooh)

(Got a dream to take them there)
They're coming to America
(Got a dream they've come to share)
They're coming to America

They're coming to America
They're coming to America
They're coming to America
