I paint the pictures of the oceans I'll never see
I'll hold a candle through the darkness so I believe
There is a future, fine and narrow, fly me home
I paint the pictures of emotions I'll never own

Send me on my way, I drifted out of here
Into outer space, I found a place out there
Find me on the moon, you'll never be alone
Here among the stars is home away from home

You tell the story of the forces that build your fire
You wait for silence, find the sources or you'll expire
There is the sorrow of an island, I can't go
You, stuck in your cage, sent to be now, fill with distrust

Send me on my way, I drift in out of here
Into outer space I found a place out there
Find me on the moon you'll never be alone
Here among the stars is home away from home

There's a moment of surrender, there's a chance to make it better
Find the earth now and remember, there's no moment that's forever
There's a moment of surrender, there's a chance to make it better
Find the earth now and remember, there's no moment that's forever

I paint the pictures of the oceans I'll never see
I hold a candle through the darkness so I believe

    General CommentI love this song. So emotional. Yes I noticed it for the first time in the ads for the upcoming show, Riverdale.
