Once there were green fields kissed by the sun,
once there were valleys where rivers used to run ,
once there were blue skies with white clouds high above.
Once they were part of an everlasting love.
We were the lovers who strolled thru 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 dreams 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 left for me,
nothing in this wide world left for me to see.
But I'll keep on waiting ti1 you return,
I'll keep on waiting unti1 the day you learn
you can't be happy while your heart's on the roam,
you can't be happy unti1 you bring it home,
home to the green fields and me once again,
home to the green fields and me once again.
