What's left when the green fields are covered with snow
when river and stream no longer flow
do white birds return to warm seas
what's left when the linnet and sparrow are gone
when black is the night and grey is the dawn
do white birds return to warm seas
tell me my friend oh tell me please
where are the white birds and where are the seas

What's left when the friendly shadows of noon
lay stilled in the black of a darkened moon
do white birds return to warm seas
what's left when last words on tombstone are hewn
when round the cold grave flowers are strewn
do white birds return to warm seas
tell me my friend oh tell me please
where are the white birds and where are the seas

And finally what's left when the curtain is drawn
sealed so tight against tomorrow's dawn
do white birds return to warm seas
and when life grows old and the candle burns dim
and the chapel's doors open by those within
do white birds return to warm seas
tell me my friend oh tell me please
where are the white birds and where are the seas
tell me my friend oh tell me please
where are the white birds and where are the seas
