Hiraeth (Feeling Like a Child)    (Neil Browning)

This feeling in my heart- so strange,
I'm feeling like a child; I'm going back, I'm going back,
Something in the air is calling, my senses sprawling,
  Sitting upstairs on the bus, faded signs surrounding us,
Feel the recognition grow, traffic lights I used to know...

Here I am, feeling like a child,
So alive and wild,
Gwlad fy mam, cartref i mi...

My heart begins to shine (shine),
I'm feeling like a child; I'm going back, I'm going back,
Now I know the time is right, hiraeth the guiding light,
Imaginary telegram, - remind me who I am;
  Greeting familiar streets, comforting as cotton sheets...

Here I am, feeling like a child,
Gwlad fy mam, cartref i mi...

A feeling set apart, estranged;
I'm feeling like a child; I'm going back, I'm going back,
Somehow doesn't feel the same, as I return again,
Corner shop is closing down, memory of a smaller town,
Distant mountains still sublime, shopping centre bides its time...

Here I am, feeling like a child,
So alive and wild,
Gwlad fy mam, cartref i mi...

A lightness in my head;
I'm feeling like a child; I'm going back, I'm going back,
  There's still the feeling here, reservations disappear,
  I'm breathing easy now, setting sun can show me how,
Chip shop neon danger signs, old steel works and silent mines...

Here I am, feeling like a child,
Gwlad fy mam, cartref i mi...
