LyricsEdit

[GABRIEL:]
When your time has come
And you're looking toward the light
All that really matters
Is what you leave behind

So let your heart be free
Keep your spirit burning bright
Set down the stones you carry
Take the weight off your mind

When you're facing the path that divides
Know that I will be there by your side
Find your strength in the sound of my voice
And you'll know
Which choice is right

In this fleeting life
We can sometimes lose our way
But night is always darkest
Just before the new day

When you're facing the path that divides
Know that I will be there by your side
Find your strength in the sound of my voice
And you'll know
Which choice is right

[FAYTHE:]
This very moment
Was always meant to be
I never noticed
But all at once I see

On the worst of days, when I felt most alone
With no one to share the secret that I hide
I grew numb to all the emptiness inside
But now I've found my home
