Each time on my leaving home
I run back to my mother's arms,
one last hold and then it's over.


Watching me, you know I cry,
you wave a kiss to say goodbye,
Feel the sky fall down upon me!


All I am,
a child with promises
All I have
are miles full of promises of home.


If only I could stay with you,
my train moves on, you're gone from view,
Now I must wait until it's over.

Days will pass, your words to me,
it seems so long; eternity,
but I must wait and then it's over.
