Lyrics

As I walked out one evening
To breathe the air and sooth my mind
I thought of friends and the home I had
And all those things I left behind oh...

A silent star shone on me
My eyes saw the far horizon
As if to pierce this veil of time
And escape this earthly prison oh...

Will there come a time when the memories fade
And pass on with the long, long years?
When the ties no longer bind
Lord save me from this darkest fear
Don't let me come home a stranger
I couldn't stand to be a stranger

In this place so far from home
They know my name but they don't know me
They hear my voice; they see my face
But they can't lay no claim on me oh...

Will there come a time when the memories fade
And pass on with the long, long years?
When the ties no longer bind
Lord save me from this darkest fear
Don't let me come home a stranger
I couldn't stand to be a stranger

As I walk this universe
I free my mind of time and space
I wander through the galaxy
But never do I find my place oh...

Will there come a time when the memories fade
And pass on with the long, long years?
When the ties no longer bind
Lord save me from this darkest fear
Don't let me come home a stranger
I couldn't stand to be a stranger
