Wandering soul

winter comes around
and he knows he is homeward bound
his heartbeat is the only sound
    he’s known
he once lost his way
he knows now that was yesterday
he fell down on his knees to pray
    for home

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found

he’s found his way at last
with each turn a new dawn was cast
his friends now hold him steady, fast
    and true
with peace in his eyes
the fear now is a thin disguise
the friends near he sees only skies
    of blue

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found

he’s nearer every day
and he knows he is here to stay
he cares not why he went away
    so long
he found where he belongs
he knows he’s been here all along
he smiles now as he joins his friends
    in song

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found

we’ll sing to the morning
we’ll sing till the bells they sound
we’ll sing till the wandering soul is found
