About the song Edit

AURORA wrote this song when she was 14 and like "Runaway", it express a yearning to return home.

"I don’t want to ruin the feeling you might get listening to it… If it makes you happy or sad I want it to stay like that. But it’s about a girl, experiencing all kinds of different things… but it ends with light. I can say that".-AURORA[1]

Lyrics Edit

With a tiny rope and a bag of stones
And all her broken wishing bones
She's going in, she's going home
Oh this little golden eye, fighting every day
Behind the light, behind the light

Walking faster down the street
Red eyes and no shoes on her feet
Going on this journey, determined to complete
This is farewell, this is good night
The last time she will see the daylight
See the daylight

And she's going on a journey
Always walking down the road
And the water is always calling
"My little child, please come home"

That's when she went away
Away from the light of day
Standing by the riverside
Patiently waiting for the tide
To come along, to come along
The water's going through her feet
And on her body, wind so cold and sweet
So cold and sweet

And she's going on a journey
Always walking down the road
And the water is always calling
"My little child, please come home"

And the stars were brightly shining
When she reached out they were gone
And the water started calling
"My little child, please come home"

Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out
Feel the water in her body, water's never going out

And she's going on a journey
Always walking down the road
And the water is always calling
"My little child, please come home"

And the stars were brightly shining
When she reached out they were gone
And the water started calling
"My little child, please come home"

When a shiny light hit her eye
And she turned around and climbed towards the sky
Towards the sky
