Mark Knopfler – In The Sky lyrics

Are you home from the sea, my soul balladeer
You've been away roaming far away from here
weathered a storm, your heart unafraid
crossed every ocean in the boat that you made.

Been blowing your horn, scaring the spooks.
No crotchets or quavers in your books.
Gone sailing all night, straight in the vein
like a bird on his own flight in his domain in the sky.

Running in on the tide with the first of the stars
the moon on the water and the sound of guitars
Glide into the homing as the night falls
to tie up in the haven by the old harbour wall.

And the hard-bitten stranger as deaf as a post
who stands at the fire where a poet's dreams roast.
He can't know the story, he can't feel the pain
and all of the glory falls around him like rain in the sky.

You're a light in the dark, a beacon of hope
and strong as a sea boat, strong as a rope.
And the vagabond wind, whispers over the bay
and the songs and the laughter, are carried away in the sky.

    To me it means that life and death hav no causes. Meaning of the lyrics from the end to start I ask - are you home for what I went through in my life. Get the message from top finishing with the last line. Mark's lyrics of this song seems to relate to his songs - why worry - if this is goodbye. In the later song mark is silent about a (plan) with one who died. Then followed by - in the sky.
