Out of the mist of history
He'll come again
Sailing on ships across the sea
To a wounded Nation

Signs of a saviour
Like fire on the water
It's what we prayed for
One of our own

Just wait
Though wide he may roam
Always
A hero comes home
He goes where no one has gone
But always
A hero comes home

Deep in the heart of darkness sparks
A dream of light
Surrounded by hopelessness
He finds the will to fight

There's no surrender
Always remember
It doesn't end here
We're not alone

Just wait
Though wide he may roam
Always
A hero comes home
He goes where no one has gone
But always
A hero comes home

And he will come back on the crimson tide
Dead or alive
And even though we know the bridge has burned
He will return
He will return

Just wait
Though wide he may roam
Always
A hero comes home
He knows of places unknown
Always
A hero comes home

Someday they'll carve in stone
"The hero comes home"

He goes and comes back alone
But always
A hero comes home

Just wait
Though wide he may roam
Always
A hero comes home

    What a song. So powerful, so ispirational. It makes one wishes he had sword in an open field. It reminds a father to protect his family. It reminds us of the times of kings.

    always
    a hero comes home
    he goes where no one has gone
    but always
    a hero comes home

    She has such a beautiful voice! I love her so much, she and Josh Groban both sounded great in Chess the Musical and they're both my all time favorite singers!
