the green green grass of home !:))

Lyrics:

NORTHWARD BOUND (by Dani)

Home,
take me the long way home
under the Northern sky
that´s where I wanna be
breathin´the air so free

Home,
take me the long way home
where the winter is cold
home to the snowy ground
yes, I am Northward bound

I,
long for the Northern Light
shinin´bright
all over the sky in the Northern night

Home,
take me the long way home
to the only place
I wanna spend my days
in the hot summer haze

Home,
take me the long way home
under the Northern sky
that´s where I wanna live
that´s where I wanna die

I,
long for the Northern Light
shinin´bright
all over the sky in the Northern night

shinin´so bright, (repeat )

Hi Dani,

nice song and nice harmonies.
Have you really got a hot summer haze in Finland?
Enjoyed it a lot as always.

Hi Dani,

Love the feel and arrangement of your song - reminds of sitting on a train ride through the Rockies. Did you sing the lower part too?

Thanks for sharing,
Ray

Well, Trevor..

Thank you so much for your most kind words !:))
I could not really find a good replacement
for the rhytm we used on the record back in 1992
but I think I came pretty close after all !

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Guenter, my ol´friend !:))

Thank you for your most kind words.
Up here we can have summers that
are very hot but it can also be
the opposite ! It all depends on the Siberian
Highs and how they build up and how far
westwards they will push !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Sonny :))

I am very glad you liked the feel
of the tune ! It really is about
longing to return home after a
faraway trip abroad:))

Yes, I did sing all vocals on this
track:))

Hi Dani,

What a pretty song. I like it a lot. I could visualize the northern lights - home sounds like a wonderful place.

Hi, Josie !:))

Thank you my friend for
your most kind words !:))
Yes, home is not as bad
and cold as one might think,
summers up here can be
very warm indeed (depending
mostly on how far the Siberian highs
push westwards !:))
Midsummer over here is almost
magical with never ending daylight
and lighted up bonfires all along the coastline !:))

Cheers
Dani

that rolling train feeling,
but you can in fact imagine
a train pushing Northward here !:))

Hi, Patrick !:))


Thank you so much for
your kind words !:))
Our summer nights are
truly magical especially
at midsummer when we lit
bonfires all along the
coastline to go with the
never ending daylight !:))
