England is a magnificent country when the sun shines. It holds you with a magnetic pull...and won't let you go.
So take my breath And take my desire Take my every moment Instil within deep roots That penetrate secure Permanent in assured tenure Though free to travel or roam Forever tie me to England's earth So take my breath To rolling hills of verdancy Forever quell my desires With endless views And let my moments float In cloud wisped and pillowed Painted in sky of cobalt blue Oh England, what hold you possess I surrender.... I surrender
