歌詞:

Dear Mother, when I fell asleep last night
I dreamed we were sitting 'neath a shade tree
Your smile was so real and so bright
I heard you say, "Don't worry about me."

The Autumn Festival was held today
Reminding me of all my precious loved ones
And how we spent this joyous holiday
Eating moon cakes at our family home in Dunhuang

Chorus
But you are still in China, and I am overseas
When will the labor camp let you come home
If I could only hear some news it would put my mind at ease
Six months of silence fills my heart with pain
Oh how I long to see you once again.

If you renounced your faith they'd set you free
But Mother you would take a righteous stance
And say that you'll believe eternally
In Truth, Compassion and Forbearance

Dear Mother you were always there for me
How I wish that I could be there for you
But our hearts are united 'cross the sea
Which gives us both the strength to make it through

Repeat Chorus
But you are still in China, and I am overseas
When will the labor camp let you come home
If I could only hear some news it would put my mind at ease
Six months of silence fills my heart with pain
Oh how I long to see you once again.
