Somehow I have to get back
to the place where my journey started.
Find the course I charted
when I first departed.
Somehow I have to hang on
to the vision that first inspired me,
to the hope that fired me
when the world admired me!
I'll find a way back to the higher ground!
And see the view I saw before.
I'll search the world until the answer's found!
Turn my despair around forevermore!
Somehow I have to rebuild
all the dreams that the wind have scattered.
From what fate has shattered -
I'll retrieve what mattered!
Somehow I've got to go on
till the evil has been defeated,
till my work's compleated -
I will not be cheated!
God! You must help me carry on!
When it seems all hope has gone,
I have got to carry on!
