verse 1. 
Well we sit in empty rooms and dream our lives away 
While the spirits come and go without a sound 
And just like you and me they?re tryin? to find a way, find a way, find a wa---y home 

There?s a full moon in the sky but that don?t worry me 
I don?t ever hang my soul out on the line 
When witchin? hour comes I always fly away, fly away, fly awa---y home 

Chorus. 
There?s a light in the city that comes down from above 
Leavin? me wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove 
Down blow your tomorrows, don?t throw away your love 
You gotta be as wise as a serpent, harmless as a dove,           mmmmmm 

verse 2. 
Now you once asked me why we can?t communicate 
But it doesn?t always pay to tell the truth 
If I told you right now you?d only run away, run away, run awa---y home 

So we sit in empty rooms and dream our lives away 
While the spirits come and go without a sound 
Yeah just like you and me they?re tryin? to find a way, find a way, find a wa---y home 
Chorus 2.  (Same as first Chorus) (Continue riff and fade)
