LYRICS

You’ve all been very kind, but I made up my mind
Now I’m about to leave you all behind
I’m feeling so alone, I’m turning down my tone
Before the rise of sun I will be gone

On my way, I’m never coming back
And I’ll pray I’m never gonna crack
World is calling out tonight, telling me I’ll be alright
Lights will guide you through the night

Still hiding in my shell and keeping to myself
I cannot count on anybody else
I’m burning deep inside, I’m giving up the fight
Before the break of dawn I will be gone

On my way, I’m never coming back
And I’ll pray I’m never gonna crack
World is calling out tonight, telling me I’ll be alright
Lights will guide you through the night

Ey yeah yeah… ey yeah yeah…
Ey yeah yeah yeah yeah…

On my way, I’m never coming back
And I’ll pray I’m never gonna crack
World is calling out tonight, telling me I’ll be alright
World is calling out tonight, telling me I’ll be alright
Lights will guide you through the night

On my way
