Regina Spektor – The Call lyrics

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.

    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.

    The reason I love this song so much is that it fits so many situations, and therefore it really is written specifically for each person that listens to it. This song perfectly describes two people in love who have to be apart for a while - just as perfectly as it describes soldiers going and coming back from war. It tells of 18 year-olds leaving for university and everyone who has to start a new life. It is about religion and never giving up on your beliefs. It is about four children who have to leave the magical world they love so much.
    It is a song about beginnings and ending, about change, friendship, hope and love, about belief, goodbyes, hellos, tragedy, joy.
    It is a song about life. And it is beautiful.

    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.

    Theodorrah anis. I hated it when susan needed to leave prince caspian. To make it worse the song was played at the background, although I think that the song realy match the movie. When I watch the movie the first thing in my mind was the to find the song and download it no matter what, because it really touch my heart. I, v always wanted to watch the movie, every time it came on, I have to watch it even though I, v watch it like a hundreds of times it, s tills touch my heart very singal time I watch it. What I really like about the movie was that the they have cross over to nania and found some of their old cloths, and then fight the battel win and come back. I wich that susan and her brother would come and see prince caspian again that would be so good because we'll know what will happen to prince caspian and when susan.
