Who'll face the tide and take their chances
Will fasten the lights to broken branches?
Adrift on the ocean in wild winter storms
I have to imagine things to keep myself warm

The night closing in, but not to worry
Told everyone I know that I was sorry
But I heard them all singing for comfort and peace
And in my confusion here I still believe

You are the one to make me cry
You were the one to take me home
Of all the people in my life
My thoughts keep returning to you
But consciousness is fading fast

Surrounded by sights that go on living
Make circles in time, the spider web spinning
But I have no illusions of where I am now
I'll let this wave take me and draw me down

You are the one to make me cry
You were the one to take me home
Of all the stories in my life
Only good things return to you
If I could only say the words
If you could hear me cry for help
But I'd lift my head up to the sky
But the planes that were circling now have gone
