lyrics

Memories of the days we were together
Come to mind more often nowadays
You were there, smiling, satisfied and in your best clothes
We were riding back to your hometown

Wheat farms, sunflowers, barley and rye
Shafts of sun shining through the clouds
Sparkles in your eyes, your hands are trembling while you speak
Telling me the stories of your youth

We were bound to make our last trip together
We were up to know each other even more
I learned then something that would last forever
Now I know what really matters in this world

Now that you’re gone
I sing you this song

Vultures flying round the wolf river canyon
All the way to the black lake there were pines
Poplar trees on the margin of the footpath, oaks on creeks
Churches that talk in tongues of ancient times

Still see you chatting with your friends and kin
Having fun till late on a shady yard
You were so happy then, so full of joy that you forgot
The illness that was going to be your end

We were bound to make our last trip together
We were up to know each other even more
I learned then something that would last forever
Now I know what really matters in this world

Now that you’re gone
I sing you this song
Thus you’ll be here
Forever more

We were bound to make our last trip together
We were up to know each other even more
I learned then something that would last forever
Now I know what really matters in this world

Now that you’re gone
I sing you this song
