Out in the street somebody's crying
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebody's crying
Reached the point of no return
Oh – my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Refrain:
Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadnessOut on the sea of madness

Somewhere's I hear a voice that's calling
Out in the dark there burns a dreamYou've got to hope when you are falling
To find the world that you have seen
Oh – my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh – my heart is heavy as I turn back and leave

Refrain

It's madness...
The sun don't shine
On the sea of madness
There ain't no wind to fill your sails
Madness when all you see can only bringYou sadness
On towards the sea we go....

Out in the night somebody's crying
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebody's crying
Reached the point of no return
Oh – my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh – my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Refrain
