"I have returned
to the northern skies"

I have returned
to the northern skies,
Where the summer had not touched
The clouds that pass above.
Oh, and I have returned
to the somber grace
Of the days too early to come
and too early to stay.

And I have left a million stars,
And an ocean so lightly,
so clearly blue.
And I have left the warmth of the sun
And a million adventures not yet begun.
The great sense of passing through,
The great sense of passing through,
The great sense of passing through.
Oh, for once there
was beauty here for me
Under these white, northern skies.
I felt the green was blacker
And the blue was darker still.
My roots are lying deeper
than I ever think they will again.
Heartache and poverty under
these northern skies.
The great sense of passing through,
The great sense of passing through,
The great sense of passing through
