Farewell To The Highlands
Farewell to the Highlands that are so far away ,
Farewell to the North that has taken my heart away,
The birth-place of California is were I want to stay ,
Wherever I wander were my lover has been,
That gave me a world-wind,
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.
This is were I want to put my trust ,
You ask me to take your hand in love and I said I need to trust ,
That was almost the end of us .
My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not hear to stay
You ask me what I want out of our love
I said I need more of us with so much love
To build in this highland a place we can call home ,
You want me to go to a place I don't know .
I am from Cali and you are from Rome .
Farewell to the mountains high covered with snow;
With no hope of going back home .
Farewell to the street lights that had shine so bright
That keeps me up through out the nights,
Green valleys is were I will give my life ,
To a man that ask me to be his wife ,
I bring with me my heart of faith for this love to stay
That is true and kind as mine .
