Can't forget his face
What a lonely place
Has he really let us go
All the time that's lost
What's the final cost
Will I really get away
All my life it seems
Just a crazy dream
Reaching for somebody's star
Can't be believed it all
Did he really fall
What to do now I don't know

Something's calling me back
There's a light in the black
Am I ready to go
I'm coming home

Breathed the air before
Heard the thunder roar
Never knew it was for me
Always looking down
Lost and never found
Eyes that looked but not to see
All my life it seems
Just a crazy dream
Reaching for somebody's star
Like an open door
That you've passed before
But you've never had the key

Something's calling me back
Like a light in the black
Am I ready to go
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
I'm going back to my home

I'm going home, home, home
I'm going home, home, home
I'm coming back
Won't forget his face
What a lonely place
Did he really let us go
All the time that's lost
What's the final cost
Will I really get away
All my life it seems
Just a crazy dream
Reaching for somebody's star
Can't believe it all
Did he really fall
What to do now well I know

Something's calling me back
Like a light in the black
Yes I'm ready to go
I'm coming home, home

I'm on my way back home
I'm here to stay
Here I will stay
I'll stay, I'll stay

    It's obviously the follow-up to Stargazer. Dio is taking the part as a slave of the wizard. He seems lost after all the years building the wizard's star-tower. His life seems like some "crazy dream". Then after contemplating he suddely figures that the star the wizard was craving is intended for him, "Never knew it was for me". I think the "coming home" part of the song is about him returning to the wizard's tower, either to become a "new wizard" (tyrant), or to try to achieve what the wizard may or may not have succeeded. In stargazer the wizard "fell without rising", while in A light in the black he might have survived "cant believe it all // did he really fall"
