VERSE; ďIf Iíve no will to go from home; or have no urge the seas to roam; Or
Turn my back on a distant star and never burn to wander far; Itís
Not because of fear. Itís because my goal is clear
CHORUS ; ďThereís a far land, Iím told ,where Iíll find a field of gold, but
Here Iíll stay with you.
And they say thereís an isle deep with clover where your heart wears a smile all day through.
But I know well theyíre wrong and I know where I belong, and here Iíll stay with you.
For that land is a sandy illusion Ė Itís the theme of a dream gone astray,
And the world others woo I can find loving you, and so Here Iíll Stay!Ē
