"I have returned to the northern skies"

I have returned to the northern skies,
Where the summer had not touched
The clouds that pass above.
Oh, and I have returned to the somber grace
Of the days too early to come, and too early to stay.

Oh I have left a million stars,
And an ocean light, and clearly blue.
I have left the warmth of the sun
And a million adventures not yet begun.

[Chorus]
For once, there was beauty here for me
Under the wide Northern skies
And once, there was magic here for me
Under the wide Northern skies

I saw trees as green and as dark as blue
I break in poetry the deeper roots
And now I know, this is lonely country
And it leads me only, back to the sea

[Chorus]

I have returned, to Northern skies
Where summer hasn't touched
The clouds that pass above
I have returned, to the somber grace
Days too early to come, too early to stay

[Chorus]

And once there was beauty here for me
Under the wide Northern skies
And once there was magic here for me
Under the wide Northern skies

Mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm

I have returned
Mmm, mmm
I have returned
Ohh, ohh
I have returned
Mmm, mmm
