For me, this song tells of a young couple during WW1..is going off to fight soon and wants to tell his love that he wants her and adores her..has never made promises like this before..never will again..the song says, 'I swear in the days still left, we''ll walk in fields of gold'.....knows he will not be coming back...then after many years, she walks among the fields of gold...remembering him, her first, true love..sees the children running..are not their children, but a symbol to her of how she and her love used to be...free, young and full of the joys of innocent love and happiness...
