There's a man I've read about
And they say he lives forever
When the world was filled with sin
He came and brought the world together

Then he left us on our own
Now it's time again
For him to come back home

'Cause this world is full of hate
He's got to come before it's too late
'Cause we can't make it on our own
And it's time again for him
To come back home

[CHORUS]
Come back home
Make the streams
Flow to the valleys
And take away the clouds
That hide the sun
Come back home
Teach each man to love his neighbor
And give us one more chance
To right the wrong we've done
If only for the children
Come back home

You gave us trees
We cut them down
Your sky of blue
We've make it hazy

Your lakes and streams
They're dark and cold
And it's time again
For you to come back home

[Repeat CHORUS]

'Cause our time is running out
And the world is slowly dying
The things we've done
Have all gone wrong
And it's time again for you
To come back home

[Repeat CHORUS]

Mmm mmm mmm...

Yes, it's time again
For you to come back home
