lyrics

The wind brings a familiar song
It plays with your hair
as you sing along
without making a sound

As you walk, the streets unfold
Winding up and down
as if time had stopped
many centuries ago

You’ve stepped inside a postcard

When the sun sets over the Abbey
angels are climbing out of the yellow stone
I’ve never felt so close to Heaven
But where will you go when you are so at home?

You smile so hard, you barely feel
your dreams paling, disappear
while the music lives on

It’s in the smoke on the water

When the sun sets over the Abbey
angels are climbing out of the yellow stone
I’ve never felt so close to Heaven
But where will you go when you are so at home?

As for me, the price too high
though I know I can’t get away
without leaving a piece of my soul behind

When the sun sets over the Abbey
angels are climbing out of the yellow stone
I’ve never felt so close to Heaven
But where will you go when you are so at home?
I could call this home
