I was just a boy when I set out on my own
I’d never strayed far from the place that I’d come from
I was only a boy when I left my home
I wasn’t seeking riches, I only felt it in my bones, I had to go
To the road

And my mother, she kissed my face, and said “Baby don’t you lose your way”
And I prayed, I prayed, I prayed, that I’d find my way home someday

I met a pretty girl with pale blue eyes
She had a ribbon in her hair and she always wore a smile
I met a pretty girl with the ocean in her eyes
And a pink and yellow dress that was doin’ its best to hide her knees
From me

From the moment I saw her face in that barren and broken blue place
I prayed, I prayed, I prayed, that someday I could give her my name

At the end of all things where even memory dies
I gave up my body to stay by her side
At the end of all things in the infinite night
I could have stared down any demon, I was not afraid to die, with her hand
Holdin’ mine

And I prayed, I prayed, I prayed, that the darkness wouldn’t take us away
And she prayed, she prayed, she prayed
She prayed, she prayed, she prayed
With all of her heart she prayed
And the whole world prayed with her that day
And the darkness raged in impotent rage
And we prayed, we prayed, we prayed
And we found our way home that day
