When the light begins to fade
And shadows fall across the sea,
One bright star in the evening sky.
Your love's light leads me on my way.

There's a dream that will not sleep,
A burning hope that will not die.
So I must go now with the wind,
And leave you waiting on the tide.

Time to fly, time to touch the sky.
One voice alone, a haunting cry.
One song, one star burning bright,
May it carry me through darkest night.

Rain comes over the gray hills,
And on the air, a soft goodbye.
Hear the song that I sing to you
When the time has come to fly.

When I leave and take the wind
And find the land that faith will bring,
The brightest star in the evening sky
Is your love waiting far for me
