There's no need to be afraid
Death is just a step we take
If you're feeling all alone
Just think of it as going home

(Home, home, home, going home, home, going home)

When the time to leave arrives
You will see it with your eyes
Like a tunnel filled with light
Warm inviting and so bright

(Bright, bright, bright, oh so warm and inviting, very, very bright)

When the angels come to take you
You will gladly go
Flying high above the world below

(Flying high above the world below, flying high above the world below)

When you reach the other side
Memories will fade and die
You will rest a while and then
Start the cycle once,
(Start the cycle once, start the cycle once, start the cycle once)
Start the cycle once again.
