“Always a Hero Comes Home” … Really?

Out of the mist of history
He’ll come again
Sailing on ships across the sea
To a wounded Nation

Signs of a savior
Like fire on the water
It’s what we prayed for
One of our own

Just wait
Though while he may roam
Always
A hero comes home
He goes where no one has gone
But always
A hero comes home

Deep in the heart of darkness sparks
A dream of lies
Surrounded by hopelessness
He finds the will to fight

Theres no surrender
Always remember
It doesn’t end here
We’re not alone

Just wait
Though while he may roam
Always
A hero comes home
He goes where no one has gone
But always
A hero comes home

And he will come back on the crimson tide
Dead or alive
And even though we know the bridge has burned
He will return
He will return

Just wait
Though while he may roam
Always
A hero comes home
He knows of places unknown
But always
A hero comes home

Someday they’ll carve in stone
“The hero comes home”

He goes and comes back alone
But always
A hero comes home

Just wait
Though while he may roam
Always
A hero comes home

Lyrics for the closing song of Beowulf (U.S.: Zemeckis, 2007, 115 mins)
