All the pictures on the wall
The bed upstairs, still unmade
The people just left
Forgetting this and that

The music still playing in one room
And towels on the floor
Just the bees and birds
Of the trees, and the air

Like a light hand on your back
We can all feel it
Welcoming you
The day before we went to war

The sea so still and calm
Just the gentle hum
Broken by the sudden rush
Flying low and fast

Like a light hand on your back
We can all feel it
Welcoming you
The day before we went to war

Like a light hand on your back
We can all feel it
Welcoming you
The day before we went to war
All the pictures on the wall
The bed upstairs, still unmade
The people just left
Forgetting this and that

The music still playing in one room
And towels on the floor
Just the bees and birds
Of the trees, and the air

Like a light hand on your back
We can all feel it
Welcoming you
The day before we went to war

The sea so still and calm
Just the gentle hum
Broken by the sudden rush
Flying low and fast

Like a light hand on your back
We can all feel it
Welcoming you
The day before we went to war

Like a light hand on your back
We can all feel it
Welcoming you
The day before we went to war
