As the night is falling
A lonely cry is ringing out the day
All alone and it's dawning
That happy times have left and gone astray
Today...
Afraid...

Far away
Is he calling?
A lonely heart all lost and gone away?
So he'll search till the morning
Will happiness return at break of day?
Today...
Afraid...

What did he do
Did he run away?
But where will he go
And how far will he stray?

Lost on the road
On a winter night
Giving up the ghost
And giving up the fight
It's true...

But I don't believe this tale's already through
So he'll keep on calling till his time is due
And he'll keep on walking coz this Tail is True
It's true
It's true...

But I don't believe this tale's already through
So he'll keep on calling till his time is due
And he'll keep on walking coz this Tail is True
It's true
It's true...

Can you hear him, Rockford?
