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
Let it carry me through darkest night

Rain comes over the gray hills
And on the air a soft good-bye
Hear the song that I'll sing to you
When the time has come to fly

When I'll leave and take the wing
And find the land that fate will bring
The brightest star in the evening sky
Is your love waiting far for me
Is your love waiting far for me
