A Hero Comes Home Lyrics

by Idina Menzel

Out of the midst of history
He'll come again
Sailing on ships across the sea
To a wounded nation

Signs of a savior
Like fire on the water
It's what we've prayed for
One of our own

Just wait, though wide he may roam
Always, a hero comes home
He goes where no one has gone
But always a hero comes home

Deep in the heart of darkness
Sparks a dream of light
Surrounded by hopelessness
He finds the will to fight
There's no surrender, always remember
It doesn't end here, we're not alone

Just wait, though wide he may roam
Always, a hero comes home
He goes where no one has gone
But always a hero comes home

And he will come back
On a crimson tide, dead or alive
And even though we know the bridge has burned
He will return, he will return

Just wait, though wide he may roam
Always, a hero comes home
He knows of places unknown
But always a hero comes home

Some day he may be carved in stone
The hero comes home
He goes and comes back alone
But always, a hero comes home

Just wait though wide he may roam
Always, a hero comes home
