Over The Hebrides

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Butterstone (1989).

I sleep on the jumbo he's taking me home
In Canada she's fading away
And over the Hebrides I'm feeling so alone
'Cause goodbye's been so hard to say

But I'm dreaming now
It's my conscience that's starting to fall
And I'm dreaming now
I just don't know why I'm travelling at all

Two children in Venice in the sun setting sky
I'm watching and I'm fixed to the screen
And underneath the bridge they'll kiss and never say goodbye
And crying now I know what they mean

But I'm dreaming now
It's my conscience that's starting to fall
And I'm dreaming now
I just don't know why I'm travelling at all

The landing in Prestwick is wet and so cool
And summer looks like it could be near
And the brim of the hat hides the face of the fool
And tears hide the fact that he's here

But I'm dreaming now
It's my conscience that's starting to fall
And I'm dreaming now
I just don't know why I'm travelling at all
