Lyrics

When they lay you in the cold, hard earth, 
will you know what your time is worth? 
Will you hear the angels call,? 
or find nothing, nothing at all.? 
Reincarnated like a bird on a wire,? 
to sing your song in a one man's choir. 
You live your life like a rolling stone,? 
only happy when you feel alone,? 
only happy when you feel alone.? 
 
"I got a hole in me,"? 
said the Captain to the sea.? 
He said, "oh I envy the sky, for she is free. 
She'll be the death of me, jealousy. 
All my life I've been homesick for a place I don't recall.? 
I feel like I was born to fly, though I'm built to fall.? 
All my life I've been searching for a place I've never seen, but here I don't belong, or there--somewhere in between." 
 
Broke my body for a dollar bill,? 
there's a hole win the cup that I'm trying to fill.? 
A woman's touch can heal your pain, ease your mind, and kill you all the same.? 
All I want is what I've earned, all I have is what I've learned.? 
There's nobody that can hold my soul.? 
I'm only happy when I feel alone,? 
only happy when I feel alone.? 
 
"I got a hole in me,"? 
said the Captain to the sea.? 
He said, "oh I envy the sky, for she is free. 
She'll be the death of me, jealousy. 
All my life I've been homesick for a place I don't recall.? 
I feel like I was born to fly, though I'm built to fall.? 
All my life I've been searching for a place I've never seen, but here I don't belong, or there--somewhere in between." 
 
One night on the ocean,? 
the sea was on the rise.? 
The waves began to whisper,? 
"Captain close your eyes,? 
Captain close your eyes, we're here to take you home. 
We will welcome you as one of our own. 
We are all lost souls, happiest alone.? 
We welcome you,? 
Welcome home."
