Yesterday I felt the wind blowing 'round my shoulder
Feel like I'm getting older
Still I can't forget your face

Separated by a million miles of ocean
My heart still feels emotion
Even in this lonely place

Old photographs and places I remember
Just like a dying ember
That's burned into my soul
Even though we walk the diamond-studded highways
It's the country lanes and byways
That makes us long for home

Lately I just find my mind has turned to dreamin'
Making plans and scheming
How I'm gonna get back home

But deep down inside I know it's really hopeless
This road I'm on is endless
We climb our mountains all alone

REFRAIN

That makes us long
For home

    This song reminds me so much of my childhood days. How i wish i could return those days when childhood dreams was within me. Full of laughter and enthusiasm. Living a carefree life with no things to worry if what should i wear, eat and problems were not born yet that time. Miss those days so much!!!

    This song is so memorable with me be with this i always remember my childhood sweetheart, after so many years that we haven't heard with each other suddenly we've met thru social networking and become close again. and this time we realized that we are both in love with each other. Thou we are apart miles and miles away still we cannot deny the fact that we are longing and hoping to be together someday. Gods will I love him so much.

    "someone's longing for home despite the achievements he has. It's about realizing that there may be spots that are more beautiful than the usual but still, there is no place like home.. "
