      About "Northern Skies"

      Lyrics for Dido - "Northern Skies"

      "I have returned to the northern skies"

      I have returned to the northern skies,
      Where the summer had not touched
      The clouds that pass above.
      Oh, and I have returned to the somber grace
      Of the days too early to come, and too early to stay.

      Oh I have left a million stars,
      And an ocean light, and clearly blue.
      I have left the warmth of the sun
      And a million adventures not yet begun.

      [Chorus]
      For once, there was beauty here for me
      Under the wide Northern skies
      And once, there was magic here for me
      Under the wide Northern skies

      I saw trees as green and as dark as blue
      I break in poetry the deeper roots
      And now I know, this is lonely country
      And it leads me only, back to the sea

      [Chorus]

      I have returned, to Northern skies
      Where summer hasn't touched
      The clouds that pass above
      I have returned, to the somber grace
      Days too early to come, too early to stay

      [Chorus]

      And once there was beauty here for me
      Under the wide Northern skies
      And once there was magic here for me
      Under the wide Northern skies

      Mmm, mmm
      Mmm, mmm
      Mmm, mmm

      I have returned
      Mmm, mmm
      I have returned
      Ohh, ohh
      I have returned
      Mmm, mmm
