lyrics

We walked across the fields
with burning skin and determined will
We reached the peak of Solan Hill
where view is bright and the air is chilled

We built a camp under a moonlit sky
where summer had left the river dry
And we saw the cloud burst into tears
as they hadn’t cried for many years

We saw the sun rise over polished hills
we saw the mist let go of its mighty grip
Every departure is a quiet wish
Please don’t let this one - slip away

If you pass through this valley again
leave me a message in the dry river sand
If you come during the August rain
stay ‘till the monsoon beauty lands

Can you remember how it feels
when the polished hill reveals
in the sudden change of season
to leave for greater reason

We saw the sun rise over polished hills
we saw the mist let go of its mighty grip
Every departure is a quiet wish
Please don’t let this one - slip away
