When will we know love? When will we listen to heaven above? And how will we return? Someone said that we've been tempting fate But I believe this song just wouldn't come if it's too late.
[Chorus] When will we see a light upon the ocean. Shining like a star That leads us ever onward There's a new world waiting When will we see rebirth This island Earth
Maybe our moment is gone Maybe we've stood and watched A moment too long So why do I believe? Someone said That the truth's too much to take But tell me how we can face it If we only want to look the other way
To a new beginning Shine for all it's worth This Island Earth
Why, what will we say to the angry child, Try to explain away her fears while we're crying burning tears Maybe it's time to cry the tear that matters
Oh as we sail Through the stars We're alive on this island of ours
