|Once there were greenfields kissed by the sun;
|Once there were valleys where rivers used to run;
|Once there was blue sky with white clouds high above;
|Once they were part of an everlasting love.
|We were the lovers who strolled through greenfields.
|Greenfields 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 dreams depart.
|Where are the greenfields 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 waitin' 'til 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 greenfields and me once again.
