lyrics

It only takes two people talking
To break the silence they create
Laughter ringing in the ruins
The fountain flows again

You know you look just like a stranger
It's been so long- you've been away
But you're the one that I remember
From endless summer days

How many times have I called your name
And how many times have I cried in vain?

Come back, come back, come back
come back to the fountain
When you've seen every ocean and mountain
Come back, come back, come back
come back to the fountain
When you've seen every ocean and mountain
Come back my rambling boy


So if you want to tell the story
Of two people in a room
Someplace you won't be returning- tell it to the moon.

But if you want to know the answer
To the question: Was I true?
Taste the water from the fountain
That flows so pure and cool

How many times have I called your name
And how many times have I cried in vain?

Come back, come back, come back
come back to the fountain
When you've seen every ocean and mountain
Come back, come back, come back
come back to the fountain
When you've seen every ocean and mountain
Come back my rambling boy
