When You Return
Mireille Mathieu

When you return
To the land you love,
Then you know that it is worth
Every other place on earth.

When you return
To the ones you love
There is noone to compare
To your loved ones waiting there.

The plane's, and there you'll know.
Your heart has skipped a beat.
You get your souvenirs
And whole life to meet.
You're happy as a clown,
As tears begin like rain,
To be back home again.

When you return
To the land you knew
Even rain and sweat streaks
Shining like gold for you.
The towns in your passport
Were wonderful to see,
And they will live forever
Within your memory.
You've had a magic time,
The place you've waited for
To be back home once more.

When you return
To the land you love,
Then you know that it is worth
Every other place on earth.
As you see your friends and family,
You're so proud of everyone, you see.
That is something that you long
When you return.
