It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

And then that word grew louder and louder
Til it was a battle cry

I'll come back
When you call me

No need to say goodbye

Just because everything's changing
Doesn't mean it's never
Been this way before

All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are
As you head off to the war

Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light


You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say good bye

You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say good bye

Now we're back to the beginning
It's just a feeling and no one knows yet
But just because they can't feel it too
Doesn't mean that you have to forget

Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
Til they're before your eyes

You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

    I hated it when Susan needed to leave Prince Caspian.. This song playing at the background scene made me feel even sadder. :(

    It's ETERNAL, a rare piece. Beautiful.. If you're to ask me how to define music, I'll answer you this song.:-) ahhh there's so much to say, but it's all here, in its melody. I love music, and with this, it makes me love music more.

    This song really means a lot to me. There was a time I was on the verge of seperating from my husband. although I loved him so much circumstances made us hate each other. But this song made me thing over it again and again and me and my husband got along again and resumed our love and marriage.

    this song has to one of the most beautiful i have ever heard. It was written for the movie. For me, it means goodbyes are never final, for somehow, someway, you will see the person again, maybe not the way you hoped, but through their memory, you will never forget them.

    My only problem with the way the song was playing during the movie, I expected the "Now we're back to the beginning" part to come when they'd arrived back at the train station because since time hadn't passed while they were gone, they are back where they started in the beginning.
