    Lyrics

    a billion words ago
    the sailors disappeared
    a story for the children
    to rock them back to sleep

    a million burning books
    like torches in our hands
    a fabric of ideals
    to decorate our homes

    a thousand generations
    the soil on which we walk
    a mountain of mistakes
    for us to climb for pleasure

    a hundred clocks are ticking
    the line becomes a circle
    spin the wheel of fortune
    or learn to navigate

    2x
    a choir full of longing
    will call our ships to port
    the countless lonely voices
    like whispers in the dark

    a second of reflection can
    take you to the moon
    the slightest hesitation can
    bring you down in flames

    a single spark of passion
    can change a man forever
    a moment in a lifetime
    is all it takes to break him

    a fraction of a heartbeat
    made us what we are
    a brother and a sister
    for better or for worse

    a billion words ago
    they sang a song of leaving
    an echo from the chorus
    will call them back again

    2x
    a choir full of longing
    will call our ships to port
    the countless lonely voices
    like whispers in the dark

    3x
    tonight we light the fires
    we call our ships to port
    tonight we walk on water
    and tomorrow we'll be gone

    tonight
    tonight
