Can't forget his face, what a lonely place
Has he really let us flow?
All the time that's lost, what's the final cost
Will I really get away?

All my life, it seems just a crazy dream
Reaching for somebody's star
Can't believe it all, did he really fall?
What to do now, I don't know

Something's calling me back
It's a light in the black
Am I ready to go?
I'm coming home

Breathed the air before, heard the thunder roar
Never knew it was for me
Always looking down, lost but never found
Eyes but look but not to see

All my life, it seems just a crazy dream
Reaching for somebody's star
Like an open door, that you've passed before
But you never had the key

Something's calling me back
There's a light in the black, am I ready to go?
I'm coming home, I'm coming home, yeah
I'm going back to my home

I'm going home, home, home
Going home, home, home
I'm coming back

Won't forget his face, what a lonely place
Did he really let us go?
All the time that's lost, what's the final cost
Will I really get away?

All my life, it seems just a crazy dream
Reaching for somebody's star
Can't believe it all, did he really fall?
What to do now, I don't know

Something's calling me back like a light in the black
Yes, I'm ready to go, I'm coming home, home, yeah
I'm on my way back home
Look to the sky, there in the sky, I see a star
