about

Saying goodbye on the last night of the visit to the old country.

lyrics

When the sky descends around us,
when the clouds brush past your face,
and a mist fills every hollow,
I am sad to leave this place.
I look round a scene of silence,
where the streets in twilight dwell,
and I know the time is near now,
when we have to say farewell.

I was welcomed as a stranger,
in this land my fathers knew.
Seems like all these hills and valleys
I have known my whole life through,
like a song creates inside you
a whole new mansion of the mind:
and hardly have I learnt to love you,
I must leave this land behind.

But the song I carry with me,
through wherever the long roads lead,
will be there if I should falter:
give to me the strength I need.

So at last our eyes mist over,
and we share the last embrace.
But one day I will return here,
with my distant, local face.
I will walk the streets and laneways,
to hear the tale the hillsides tell,
till my southern heart recalls me,
and once again I say farewell.
