lyrics

I’m living in the city where my grandfather was born/Where he walked, the first years of his life/I wander and I hear the language that he spoke/And it takes me back to when I was a child/I had to come so far, to feel so close/How far do you have to go before you find your way back home?/ I’ve visited the house where my grandmother grew up/From photographs I recognise a chair, a chest of drawers/I look out the window and I see the view she saw/And it takes me back to when I was a child/I had to come so far, to feel so close/How far do you have to go before you find your way back home?/I know I’ll never see them again/I’ll never be a child again, go back to that time again/I’ll never set foot in their amazing cities/Their terrible cities, industrial cities/I had to come so far, to feel so close (I’m living in the city where my grandfather was born)/How far do you have to go before you find your way back home?
