Somehow I have to get back
To the place where my journey started,
Find the course I charted,
When I first departed !
Somehow I have to hang on
To the vision that first inspired me,
To the hope that fired me,
When the world admired me !
I'll find a way back to the higher ground,
And see the view I saw before !
I'll search the world
Until the answer's found-
Turn my despair around
Somehow I've got to rebuild
All the dreams that the winds have scattered,
From what fate has shattered-
I'll retrieve what mattered !
Somehow I've got to go on
Till the evil has been defeated-
Till my work's completed-
I will not be cheated !
God you must help me carry on !
When it seems all hope has gone,
I have got to carry on !
