Marty Pilkington (Pilks) was my fellow musician, mentor, and friend. I met him while I was student teaching in Whakatane, New Zealand. This is his song. He passed away in 2008.

lyrics

Patchwork flatness I see from my plane
Lakes so massive they call them great
Up to the hills, where the settlements are
Over mountains, so near but so far
Snow-capped peaks, glaciers and lakes
Down to the river
and the City of Dreams
Down to the river
and the City of Dreams.

This is like coming home.
This is like coming home.

A flight of fantasy, a flight of hope
In summer's beautiful light
In the Northern Hemisphere, where you all live
I'm so happy when I'm here.

This is like coming home.
This is like coming home.

Patchwork flatness I see from my plane
Lakes so massive they call them great
Up to the hills where the settlements are
Over mountains, so near but so far
Snow-capped peaks, glaciers and lakes
We go down to the river
and the City of Dreams
down to the river
and the City of Dreams
down to the river
and the City of Dreams
we go down to the river and the City of Dreams.

This is like coming home.
This is like coming home.
