In case you’re interested, here’s the voiceover text –
Walking the roads of our youthThrough the land of our childhood, our home, and our truthBe near me, guide me, always stay beside meSo I can be freeFreeLet’s roam this place, familiar and vastOur playground of green frames our pastWe were wanderersNever lostAlways homeWhen every place was fencelessAnd time was endlessOur ways were always the sameCalm my demons and walk with me, my brotherUntil our roads lead us away from each otherAnd if your heart’s full of sorrow, keep walkingDon’t restAnd promise me from heart to chest to never let your memories dieNeverI will always be alive and by your sideIn your mindI’m free.
