Where does this road lead
Where, where in the sunlit sky
Why should I keep running hard
What is the meaning deep
If I thought I heard your name upon the wind I could aspire
If I saw the final line I'd have some fuel to feed the fire
Now I only know here am I

High, high up above me
Where I have no wings to fly
To the earth I'm bound to gravity I am a slave enchained
But I can still chase the wind
If I thought I heard your name upon the wind I could aspire
If I saw the final line I'd have some fuel to feed the fire
Now I need to know who am I

Long search I for little answer
Far I wander yet I never move
Through the distance to the mountain tall I can hear a call but faintly
There's a sound throbbing in my head
I can feel something deep within
It won't leave me, it torments me
It compels me to move ever forward

If I thought I heard your name upon the wind I could aspire
If I saw the final line I'd have some fuel to feed the fire
I just need to know who am I
What am I, why am I

High on a mountain top I woke
Far to the east the morning broke
Far below I saw a land
All was darkness, all was shadow
And yet
Who led me here, who carried me
Away from there
I sensed a presence
A calming spirit watching me
And then I knew
That the darkened land was behind
Never need I return
What I had once thought of as home
Was just a place of gloom and wandering
Sing, sing to me, please sing

Whether I had run away from home
Or merely lost my way
It mattered not, no
For I knew I was close
All would be answered
And my heart would find its rest
For here I find myself at journey’s ending
Sweetly came that song
Growing now and strong
Higher than mountain peak
Everything I would seek
Was waiting there
Home at last, am I found
I am found, I’m found, I’m found, I’m found
If the sun could light a thousand dreams
To carry us away

Whispered on the wind
A call to transcend

Still I’m rooted and fixed as stone
To the ground
One last look back to where I’d been
Bitter sweet, I retreat
Call me weak for I am but Man
A fallen creature bound to earth
This is just a symptom of
Something deep, I can’t break its hold
Thus I weep as the world grows cold yet I hear
Drawing near, singing clear
And I can’t help but turn
You can call it anything that you desire
But I can’t ignore
I am going to make a run for it
Or with broken wings I’ll fly
Hoping he’ll see, hoping he’ll see
This damaged fragment of life
Is struggling homeward at last
I can see it
And it’s beautiful
So at last I return home!

He sang me a song to break
The hardest heart
For I had made mine a stone

If the sun could launch a thousand dreams and carry us away

If I thought I heard your name upon the wind I could aspire
If I saw the final line I'd have some fuel to feed the fire
When at last I heard your song I knew the meaning and broken-hearted
Like a child who lost in darkness finds his way when the sun
At last breaks free

When the morning comes
When at last the sun shines clear
I will hear you singing
That familiar song
That’s haunted me my whole life long
Tugging me relentlessly
Back to where it started
In the gardens of our youth
Where the white dove sings
Where all is wonder, all is cheer
Though I stumble, though I fall
When the morning comes
When at last the sun shines clear
I will hear you singing
I can hear you singing
For it all comes clear in the morning sun
When the morning comes
When at last the sun shines clear
I will hear you singing
When the morning comes
When at last the sun shines clear
I will hear you singing
Yes I will hear you sing
I can hear you
