My Home

Waters that race
Rivers that foam
This is the place
I call my home
Towering cliffs
Timeless and strong
This is the land,
Where I belong
Just as a wave follows every wave
My endless weeping will last till the grave
Weeping on weeping
Will last, will last till the grave
Weeping on weeping will last till the grave
Just like the ceaseless wind in the trees
There’s no reprieve for my miseries
Just like the ceaseless wind in the trees
There’s no reprieve for my miseries
There’s no reprieve for my miseries
And like the mountain’s unchanging core
My endless pain will last evermore
My endless torment
Lasts for evermore
My endless pain will last evermore
Waters that race
Rivers that foam
This is the place
I call my home
Towering cliffs
Timeless and strong
This is the land,
Where I belong

Composer

Franz Peter Schubert was an late Classical and early Romantic composer. He produced a vast oeuvre during his short life, composing more the 600 vocal works (largely Lieder), and well as several symphonies, operas, and a large body of piano music. He was uncommonly gifted from a young age, but appreciation of his music was limited during his lifetime. His work became more popular in the decades after his death, and was praised by 19th century composers, including Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, and Liszt.
