When the swallows
Come back to Capistrano
That's the day you promised
You'd come back to you

When you whisper
Farewell in Capistrano
Twas the day the
Swallows flew out to sea

All the mission bells will ring
The chapel choir will sing
The happiness you'll bring
Will live in my memory

When the swallows
Come back to Capistrano
That's the day I pray that
You'll come back to you

When the swallows
Come back to Capistrano
That's the day I pray that
You'll come back to me

    When you left, it was the same time that the swallows flew away. It was symbolic of your leaving. Now i long for the day the swallows return, hoping that you will also return home, and to me.
