Once there were green fields kissed by the sun.
Once there were valleys where rivers used to run.
Once there was blue sky with white clouds high above
Once there were parts of an over lasting love
We were the lovers who strolled through green fields.
Green fields are gone now parched by the sun
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart
Gone with the lovers who let their dream depart
Where are the green fields that we used to roam
I'll never know what made you run away
How can I keep searching when dark clouds hide the day
I only know there's nothing here for me
Nothing in this wide world left for me to see
But I'll keep on waiting till you return
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy while your heart's on the roam
You can't be happy until you bring it home
Home to the green fields and me one again.
