Don't you want to be there, don't you want to go?
Where the light is breaking and the cold clear winds blow
Don't you want to be there in the golden glow?

Don't you want to be there, don't you want to fly?
With your arms out, let a shout take you across the sky
Don't you want to be there when the time's gone by?

Times, there was love all around you
Times, you were strong and alone
Times, you believed love had found you
And you fell through time like a stone

And those you have wronged, you know
You need to let them know some way
Those who have wronged, you know
You'll have to let them go someday

Don't you want to be there?
Don't you want to cry when you see how far
Got to go to be where forgiveness rules
Instead of where you are?

Don't you want to be there, don't you want to know?
Where the grace and simple truth of childhood go
Don't you want to be there when the trumpets blow?

Blow for those born into hunger
Blow for those lost 'neath the train
Blow for those choking in anger
Blow for those driven insane

And those you have wronged, you know
You need to let them know some way
Those who have wronged, you know
You'll have to let them go someday

Don't you want to be there?
Don't you want to see where the angels appear?
Don't you want to be where there's strength and love
In the place of fear?
