about

Originally a melody for bagpipes called “A Celtic Homecoming”, this song says that even when you can’t be with the person you love, you can keep your thoughts entwined till the world springs together again.

lyrics

The north wind brings music to me,
the south wind breathes air of the summertime,
the west wind brings news of the sea,
east are the mountains, the home of the storm.

My love's eyes are grey as the rain,
his hair shines as black as a raven's wing.
My love's voice speaks gently to me,
soft in the darkness, all velvet and warm.

How can I leave my true love behind?
How can I live when this world is a wilderness?
All of my life with you is entwined,
tear out my heart, let it fly home to you,
over the seas, borne by the west wind.

Sleep soft and dream about me,
the same stars will shine on the two of us.
And one day, I know we shall be
safe in the arms of each other at last.

Let's stay hopeful, keep ourselves brave:
the world turns, and we should still live in it,
embrace life, the time will soon come,
when our separation is all in the past.

How can I leave my true love behind?
How can I live if this world is a wilderness?
How do you know I'm the homecoming kind?
How can I keep as courageous as you?
Never lose hope...
watch for the east wind...
the home of the storm.

My love's eyes are full of the rain,
his hair shines as mad as the summertime,
the world springs together again,
the day full of well-wishers waving their hands.

I never will leave my true love behind.
How could I live unless he grows old with me?
All of my life with you is entwined,
here with the mountains,
the rain, and the sea.
All is entwined...
blown by the four winds...
the homecoming kind...
