Clouds are gathering round my head
It's a rainy day without an end
I'd change the world but it won't bend
Did I hear your voice in the wind?
Did I hear you calling?

Is it a lighthouse shining in the night?
No I believe it's a star twinkling up on high
It's clearing now my eyes are dry
And I can see you sailing out across the sky
Out across the sky

This is not a dream, you've taken flight, far above the world
You walk on clouds, you ride the light, far above my head

Out across the sky, out across the sky
I'm out across the sky, the ground is gone
And I'm dancing on the wind, I'm dancing on the wind

Ain't no packing bags when your voyage is to the son
Ain't no last good-byes when heaven calls you on
It's hard to believe this dreary night is gone
But I can feel it's meant for everyone

This is not a dream, you've taken flight, far above the world
You walk on clouds, you ride the light, far above my head

Out across the sky, out across the sky
I'm out across the sky

Out across the sky, far above the world
Out across the sky, far above my head
Out across the sky, tell the world good-bye
Out across the sky, out across the sky
Out across the sky
