Faultline – Greenfields lyrics

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 through 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 here for me
Nothing in this wide world left for me to see.

But I'll keep on waiting 'til you return
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy with your heart on the roam
You can't be happy until you bring it home

Home to the green fields and me once again.
