When I was young, I lived in the country
Clouds were my friends, I cannot answer why
And now that I've grown, I live in the city
And heaven is so far, I cannot reach the sky

I once met a man, who lived in the city
The stone was his home, he said his heart was mine
He led me far away, when he told me I was pretty
How strange to go so far, and never touch the sky

Gardens grow most times in the country
Grow a wondrous high
Gardens grow sometimes in the city
Grow, but soon they die

Now I look up at the buildings of the city
Their fingers are so much longer than mine
I wish I had the hands of the city
For heaven is so far, I cannot reach the sky

Gardens grow most times in the country
Grow a wondrous high
Gardens grow sometimes in the city
Grow, but soon they die

When I was young, I lived in the country
Clouds were my friends, I cannot answer why
And now that I've grown, I live in the city
And heaven is so far, I cannot reach the sky
And heaven is so far, I'll never touch the sky
