Lyrics

On the wings of a boomerang
Is the heart and soul
Of a song he sang
Given to him, he gave to me
A symbol of a love set free
All I am, all I believe
All I give, all I receive
Truth he told, truth I hold
Love a journeying
A law across the earth
To guide my universe

Fly boomerang
Soar high in the sky
Travel far o’er yonder
Dive deep in ocean waters
Rapt in desire on a prayer of fire
Through the world spinning free
In a grander dream
Love comes back to me
On the wings of a boomerang

He left home at age 18
Longed to roam to live his dream
See the world, step out in faith
Far from his roots to find his place
The night before he made his way
His sister came to him to say
"Take this wooden boomerang
Fly free across the sea
And one day you’ll return
Enriched by all you’ve learned”

Fly boomerang
Soar high in the sky
Travel far o’er yonder
Dive deep in ocean waters
Rapt in desire on a prayer of fire
Through the world spinning free
In a grander dream
You’ll come back you’ll see
On the wings of a boomerang

I remember the moment
He touched my heart
The very first time we had to part
Standing at his front door
I was moved like never before
Way up high above the frame
Were wings on which
He’d carved my name
The wooden boomerang
He’d carried ‘round the world
He said, “please come back to me
I love you can’t you see”

Fly boomerang
Soar high in the sky
Travel far o’er yonder
Dive deep in ocean waters
Rapt in desire on a prayer of fire
Through the world spinning free
In a grander dream
Come back to me
