Found that man reported missing
He wandered in his home
It don't seem too bad if you consider
Just what he's been through

Seems he met up with a gang of thieves
(Aah, aah, aah)
Who mistook him for a man of means
(Aah, aah, aah)
They locked him up, then found he had no money
(Aah, aah, aah)
So they let him go again
Now he's back at home and happy
Just to see the kids

I wish, that I could really tell you
All the things that happened to me
Or all that I have seen
A world full of people, their hearts full of joy

Cities of light with no fear of war
And thousands of creatures with happier lives
And dreams of a future
With meaning and no need to hide

Oh, keep it dark

It seems strange to have to lie
About a world so bright
And tell instead a made up story
From the world of night

I wish that I could really tell you
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen
A world full of people, their hearts full of joy

Cities of light with no fear of war
And thousands of creatures with happier lives
And dreams of a future
With meaning and no need to lie
No need to hate
No need to hide

Oh, keep it dark

Songwriters
RUTHERFORD, MICHAEL/COLLINS, PHIL/BANKS, TONY
