[Music by Eckert/Sielck ú Words by Eckert/Sielck]

[The war is over and the warrior returns to where he belongs...]

[Jan:]
I saw the shadow decline
In another world, another time
Reflecting battles full of fear
So far away from home
Death has been near

[Piet:]
I fought for liberty and faith
For survival of our race
The toll of blood it has been high
The dead will never see again
The sun up in the sky

[Both:]
I will return
Return to where I belong
Where I belong
I will be
Be with you after this war
After this war

[Jan:]
What I saw beyond the gate
Eternal darkness - our fate
In everlasting night
Deserted and destroyed
An empire without light

[Piet:]
The flame of hope kept me alive
The iron will survive
I did the things I had to do
And in my very soul
I've always been with you

[Both:]
I will return...

I had to leave it all behind
On my way to the other side
What to find ?

I had to go
Into the unknown
Through all my fear
You have been here
Here in my heart

[Solo Piet]

I will return...
Ohh, after the war
