Miri's on the rainy quayside
Miri takes my hand
We take a final moment
To breathe in our land
For we set sail tonight
With an unborn baby on a stormy sea
She cries to us silently
Let the wind carry me

I've worked hard and I speak the language now
Miri mops my brow
Weekends we take time out
To see where we are now
And our daughter goes to college
Greta knows so much more than we
She tells us so gently
Let the wind carry me
Let the wind, let the wind
Let the wind carry me

I doze and look across the garden now
Miri speaks for me
They take a final photo
We're of a world that used to be
Greta's children are on a swing
Strong and easy, laughing and free
They cry as they go so high
Let the wind carry me
Let the wind, let the wind
Let the wind carry me
