The dark of the sky ' the light of the moon
The solitary figure will be home real soon
He has braved the storms of time ' his life is on the line
He's been prayin' to his saviour
Please take me away from here
The man on the ship - has a lot to fear
He hasn't seen home - in almost a year
When darkness falls ' he goes by the stars
Getting directions from Jupiter and Mars
It was he who created this strife
He is fighting for his life
He is longing to see ' His wife and his family
CHORUS then SOLO
Well will things be the same '
When he gets home again
Will his children still remember '
The man who went away
The year that has gone past '
All the places he has been
He'll remember to the last '
The worlds that he has seen
Oh oh oh
Fade to end
