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

    This is the greatest song I have ever heard. At the end of this movie, Lucie turned her head back to look for Narnia for the last time, but it's not there any more. The song is so suitable for this movie, especially for this sense. When the time is came, we should know that "which has it's beginning will all go to it's end." Their destiny is done and nothing left. The friends are still there, their dreaming world are still there, but those are not belonged to them in this time.

    Well, personally I think this song speaks to many peopleout there who are having a though time forgeting someone. I know that when I heared this song it kind of let me let go of some of my past. I guess I just needed a good pep talk, and this song is definatly it. I guess life just haas times were you need someone or something to help you get through thoughs times. I just can't really explain the message this song gives out but to me, it says, life is just one big book in a way, but it's up to you to write the story.

    This song reminds me of my dad, he passed away this past May. The meaning for me is deeper in the sense that I feel that he is not completely gone and that he will always be here spiritually when I think of him or need him and that I will see him again. In the mean time, I will have his memories and the life lessons he taught me that will keep me going. R.I.P. Dad, I love you.

    This song is about a war and the girl is waiting for the guy to call her back and she say no need to say goodbye because they will met again
    now they back to the begining its just a feeling that no one knows yet but just because they can't feel it doesn't mean that guy have to forget
    and she said pick a star on the dark horizon and just follow it. This song is very nice and very amazing. But no one knows yet but doesn't mean we all must forget it.

    My Father just passed away two months ago. It is really hard for me to talk about it. But, I feel as though I connect with him through this song. Me and my Dad always shared the love of Narnia, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. I did not really want to see Prince Caspian because it reminded me of him to much. I was really glad that I saw it. This gives me hope that even though he is not here in person he is in spirit and can still help and guide me throughout my life.
