A Light In The Black

  • Can't forget his face
    What a lonely place
    Has he really let us flow
    All the time that's lost
    What's the final cost?
    Will I really get away?
    All my life it seems
    Just a crazy dream
    Reaching for somebody's star
    Can't believe it all
    Did he really fall?
    What to do now I don't know

    Something's calling me back
    It's a light in the black
    Am I ready to go?
    I'm coming home

    Breathed the air before
    Heard the thunder roar
    Never knew it was for me
    Always looking down
    Lost but never found
    Eyes to look but not to see
    All my life it seems
    Just a crazy dream
    Reaching for somebody's star
    Like an open door
    That you've passed before
    But you never had the key

    Something's calling me back
    There's a light in the black
    Am I ready to go?
    I'm coming home
    I'm coming home
    Yeah
    I'm going back to my home

    I'm going home, home, home
    Going home, home, home
    I'm coming back

    Can't forget his face
    What a lonely place
    Has he really let us flow
    All the time that's lost
    What's the final cost?
    Will I really get away?
    All my life it seems, just a crazy dream
    Reaching for somebody's star
    Can't believe it all
    Did he really fall?
    What to do now I don't know

    Something's calling me back
    Like a light in the black
    Yes, I'm ready to go
    I'm coming home
    Home, yeah!
    I'm on my way back home
    Look to the sky
    There in the sky
    I see a star
