Enya – Evening Falls lyrics

When the evening falls and the daylight is fading,
From within me calls - could it be I am sleeping?
For a moment I stray, then it holds me completely.
Close to home - I cannot say.

Close to home feeling so far away.
As I walk there before me a shadow
From another world, where no other can follow.
Carry me to my own, to where I can cross over...
Close to home - I cannot say.
Close to home feeling so far away.

Forever searching; never right,
I am lost in oceans of night.
Forever hoping I can find memories.
Those memories I left behind.
Even though I leave will I go on believing
That this time is real - am I lost in this feeling?

Like a child passing through, never knowing the reason.
I am home - I know the way.
I am home - feeling oh, so far away.
