  • I have journeyed endless nights
    Seen many harbors where I took rest a while
    On this boat court near and far
    To be what you must you must give up what you are

    Only on a wind of hope my heart sailed
    Craving mystic oceans to arrive
    Those who do not leave and choose to stay
    Barley survive

    Be a dust or be a star
    To be what you must just reach out for what you are
    And though you travel many worlds
    There's but one way and that's the one you chose Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
