When I'm called home
I will bring a book
That tells of strange and funny turns
And of the heart it took
To keep on living in a world
That never was my own
A world of haunted memories
Of other worlds unknown.
I'll tell them of the trouble here
When they call me home. When I'm called home
I will sing a song
And tell them of a beggar's life
Where everything goes wrong
Where everybody's hopes and dreams
Are shattering by the wind.
I'll tell them of a ghosty world
Of us and they and him.
I'll tell them how the shadows fall
When they call me home. When I'm called home
I will tell the stars
Of the battles that were lost
In a world of wars.
I will tell the rivers
Of the children lost at sea
Of ahow a soul ist bartered
And what it costs a spirit free.
Hallelujah tell a story, oh, When they call me home.
