And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you
That Im tired of castles in the air
Ive got a dream I want the world to share
And castle walls just lead me to despair

Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky
A dream come true, Ill live there till I die
Im asking you to say my last goodbye
Though loving you aint worth another try

Save me from all the trouble and the pain
I know Im weak, but I cant face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I cant remain
Perhaps shell understand if you tell it to her plain

But how can words express the feel of sunlight in the morning?
In the hills, away from city strife
I need a country woman for my wife
Im city born, but I love the country life

For I cannot be part of this cocktail generation
Partners waltz, devoid of all romance
The music plays and everyone must dance
Im bowing out and I need a second chance

Save me from all the trouble and the pain
I know Im weak, but I cant face that girl again
Tell her the reasons why I cant remain
Perhaps shell understand if you tell it to her plain

And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you
That Im tired of castles in the air
Ive got a dream I want the world to share
And castle walls just lead me to despair
Aint worth another try
