When I left so far from you

There was emptiness filling my heart

Ever since that day I've been feeling this way

I shouldn't have left from the start

Well I miss you so

And I want you to know

My love for you will never go

And so I'm going back

Where I really should be

Now I hear you call

you're crying out to me



Take me home where living is loving

Carry me to my land

Angels come to see the beauties

That are all part

Of my land


So now I travel down this road

Leading me to my family and friends

I am a simple boy

With a heart of joy

It feels like I'd never left

I think of when I was but a lad

Just being proud of my home

You will always

Be in my thoughts forever

I want to see

Everyone that I've missed




So here's to my land...

You've given me

More than I could say

I'll always be here

Until my dying day
