And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you
that I'm tired of castles in the air
I've got a dream I want the world to share
And castle walls just lead me to despair (fine)
Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky,
a dream come true, I'll live there till I die
I'm asking you to say my last good-bye
The love we knew ain't worth another try.
Save me from all the trouble and the pain
I know I'm weak, but I can't face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I can't remain
Perhaps she'll understand if you tell it to her plain.
But how can words express the feel of sunlight in the morning,
in the hills, away from city strife?
I need a country woman for my wife
I'm city born, but I love the country life.
For I will not be part of the cocktail generation,
partners waltz, devoid of all romance
The music plays and everyone must dance
I'm bowing out, I need a second chance.
da capo al fine
