  • The light of day is fading
    To bid the darkness in
    When empty smiles can never hide the hollowness within
    My thoughts race by like the scene outside
    Through the windows of the train
    I could cover my eyes but never hide
    From the promises I made

    If I was a better man
    Or a poor man or a king
    Would I have the strength to start again
    Walk the path that called to me
    Somewhere out there waiting
    Is a place where I'll know peace
    Calling out and beckoning
    Be I a poor man or a king

    The station long departed
    My fate entrusted to the rails
    No certain destination
    Except the life I'll hope to make
    But were the choice presented
    Couldn't relinquish or bequeath
    The walls I built around the truth
    I closely guard within

    If I was a better man
    Or a poor man or a king
    Would I have the strength to start again
    Walk the path that called to me
    Somewhere out there waiting
    Is a place where I'll know peace
    Calling out and beckoning
    Be I a poor man or a king

    Give me your hand
    Take your place here next to me
    Let us walk this road together
    No matter where it leads
    Put aside your burdens
    Put away your fears
    Or I'll carry them as I'd carry you
    Until the very end

    Somewhere out there waiting
    Is a place where we'd know peace
    That calls to us
    That beckons us
    The place where we'd be free

    Put aside your burdens
    Put away your fears
    I'd carry them as I'd carry you
    'Till the very end

    Put aside your burdens
    Put away your fears
    I'd carry them as I'd carry you
    Until the very end

    Somewhere out there waiting
    Is a place where we'd know peace
    Calling out and beckoning
    A place where we'd be free
