In the courtyard, birds singing
Through the window, bells ringing
Oh so tall and wide, these confining walls
I look upon the world below

Sorrow seals our lips tightly
Horror stalks our sleep nightly
But my heart escapes from this attic room
I'm running freely though the town

I remember, remember you
I remember, still close to you
No need to fear the distance here

Peace is shattered by oppression
Tainted oil meets rejection
Yes and just in case I should soon return
My secret letters I will leave

I remember, remember you
I remember, still close to you
No need to fear the distance here

Boarding the train I take in one last look
I'll keep these memories with me forever

I remember, remember you
I remember, still close to you
No need to fear the distance here

I remember, remember you
I remember, still close to you
No need to fear the distance here

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. It's so beautiful.
    A relationship that's falling apart slowly, and they both know it. "Sorry seals our lips tightly"...

    "I'll keep these memories with me forever"- It's painful but he doesn't want to forget it...

    And the way he describes the town, the poetic scene he paints with his words...it's very loving, perhaps it was the town where they met, which is why he's leaving.

    Man...that's why I left town...

    "No need to fear the distance here"...

    I love how he says he'll leave his secret letters just in case he comes back. It's kind of like saying he's keeping a door open in his heart for his love. Or maybe he wants his love to find his secret letters-his true feelings.

    So beautiful. Makes me miss someone.
