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.
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?
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
