In a spaceship over the mountains
Chasing rainbows in the setting sun
Leaving heart and home for the city of angels
I feel my life is undone

There are pathways winding below me
In pleasure I've gone where they go
In the quiet stillness I can hear symphonies
The loveliest music I know

How can I leave you again?
I must be clear out of my mind
Lost in a storm I've gone blind
Oh, how can I leave you there?

Oh, it's been a long time since I've listened
Still longer since I've walked with you
For the first time I know what I'm missing
Some answers are no longer true

So I question the course that I follow
I'm doubtful, deep in despair
My heart is filled with impossible notions
Can it be you no longer care?

Still, I ride on the wings of a high wind
Blowing steady and strong behind me
As the clouds surrender my fate is for certain
I'm a sailor who runs to the sea

But how can I leave you again?
I must be clear out of my mind
Lost in a storm I've gone blind
Oh, how can I leave you there?

How can I leave you again?
I must be clear out of my mind
Lost in a storm I've gone blind
Oh, how can I leave you there?
