Evacuee by Enya

3:50 produced by Nicky Ryan lyrics by Roma Ryan


Each time on my leaving home I run back to my mother's arms, one last hold and then it's over. Watching me, you know I cry, you wave a kiss to say goodbye, Feel the sky fall down upon me! All I am, a child with promises All I have are miles full of promises of home. If only I could stay with you, my train moves on, you're gone from view, Now I must wait until it's over. Days will pass, your words to me, it seems so long; eternity, but I must wait until it's over.
In the last line, "and then" is sung instead of "until".
