lyrics

Take me home, Ansteorra
I have been too long alone
Take me back, Ansteorra
I was young once, I had to roam

Would you know me when I come
As a child of your own
By the shine of sable starlight in my eyes?
For I've dreamed of nothing else
In the long and wandering years
But to sleep again beneath your Ansteorran skies.

I have come, full of yearnings,
To the place where I was born
How you shine, Ansteorra,
As though I'd left but yestermorn.

Would you know me when I come
As a child of your own
By the shine of sable starlight in my eyes?
For I've dreamed of nothing else
In the long and wandering years
But to sleep again beneath your Ansteorran skies.

Once I lay til the evening
Watched the warm daylight go
From your fair wildflowers
Ah, but that was long ago

I will go and seek my love
Is he waiting for me still
With the shine of sable starlight in his eyes
By the golden fields that memory
Has tended to, and filled
With the summer of an endless Ansteorran sky?

And now my song has brought me to you
Borne upon the southern wind
From my home, Ansteorra
Let me never stray again.

And would you know me when I come
As a child of your own
By the shine of sable starlight in my eyes?
For I've dreamed of nothing else
In the long and wandering years
But to sleep again beneath your Ansteorran skies

Would you know me when I come
As a child of your own
By the shine of sable starlight in my eyes?
I will hope for nothing else
When my days at last are through
But to sleep again beneath your Ansteorran skies

Where the heroes take their rest
Where the lions go to lie
Let me sleep someday beneath your Ansteorran skies.
