  • No matter where I roam
    I will come back to my english rose
    For no bonds can ever tempt me from she
    I've sailed the seven seas,

    Flown the whole blue sky.
    But I've returned with haste to where my
    Love does lie.
    No matter where I go I will come back to my english rose

    For nothing can ever tempt me from she.
    I've searched the secret mists -
    I've climbed the highest peaks
    Caught the wild wind home to hear her soft voice speak

    To hear her soft voice speak
    No matter where I roam
    I will return to my English rose
    For no bonds can ever keep me from she.

    I've been to ancient worlds
    I've scoured the whole universe
    And caught the first train home
    To be at her side.

    No matter where I roam
    I will return to my English rose
    For no bonds can ever keep me from she Writer/s: PAUL JOHN WELLER
