CRISES: DESCENT INTO PARADISE

YOU TURN AWAY,

I CLOSE MY EYES,

THEREíS NOTHING MORE TO DO

YOU SAY GOODBYE

WITH ONE LAST BREATH

I LAY MY HEAD ON YOU

HEARING JUST ONE LAST HEARTBEAT EBB

A KISS BEFORE YOU GO

I WATCH YOU SLIP AWAY

YOU LEAVE ME ALL ALONE

WATCHING YOU GO FOREVER NOW FROM ME

YOUR LIFE HAS SAILED THE TIDES OF TIME

TOO SOON YOU DEPART FROM ME

HEARING YOUR LAST WORDS IN MY MIND

IíVE TRIED SO HARD ALL MY LIFE

WATCHING ONE OF MY DREAMS END

SECOND CHANCES COMING SOOTHE MY HEART

FUTURE IN THE MAKING SUCCESS I PRETEND

THESE CHILDISH DREAMS OF MINE

NEVER OPENING MY EYES,

AWAKEN NOW MY MIND

I STEP INSIDE TO ALL THE LIGHTS OF WHICH I BREATHE

THEIR INNOCENCE I STEAL THROUGH SMILES OF PAIN

FORGOTTEN LINES AND AD-LIBBED PARTS

ALL BRILLIANTLY PORTRAYED,

THE PLAY IS OVER,

HIDING STEPS IíVE SWAYED

WITH CURTAIN CALLS THE PEOPLE ROAR

THE THUNDER FILLS THE HALL

THE STANDING PEOPLE SCREAM AND CHEER THEIR LOVE

ALL WANT MORE,

ALL WANT MORE,

NO ONE SAW ME FALL

I TRIED SO HARD ALL MY LIFE

WATCHING ONE OF MY DREAMS END

SECOND CHANCES COMING FOOL MY HEART

FUTURE IN THE MAKING,

SUCCESS I PRETEND

THESE CHILDISH DREAMS OF MINE

NEVER OPENING HER EYES

SLOWLY LOSING NOW MY MIND

TIME STANDS STILL

AND I WONDER HOW THERE CAN BE TOMORROW

TEARS AWAIT,

HOLDING ON TO MY DEEPEST SORROW

OH PLEASE, AWAKEN ME FROM SLEEP

MY NIGHTMAREíS MUCH TOO DEEP,

SHAKE ME NOW, SO I CAN KNOW REALITY

I OPEN MY EYES AND YOUíRE NOT HERE

AND MEMORIES COME FLOODING BACK TO ME

THE SMILE ON YOUR LIPS,

THE LOOK IN YOUR GAZE,

YOUíRE ALL I COULD BELIEVE

IN MY DARK SOLITUDE,

I FIGHT MY OWN DESTRUCTION EVERY DAY

NO MEANS TO AN END,

FORGETTING MY OWN NAME.

SOMETIMES I WONDER WHEN THIS FADING OF MY LIFE BEGAN,

THE YEARS WITHOUT YOUR LOVE I RAN FROM WHO IíVE BECOME

MY LIFE BECAME SO DESERT DRY,

SO MANY YEARS OF NEVER KNOWING WHY

WHERE DID ALL MY PASSION GO FOR LIVING OUT MY DREAMS?

YOU WENT INTO ANOTHER WORLD,

DO NOT DESPAIR, FOR I WILL JOIN YOU SOON SINKING DOWN,

INTO THE WARM DARK OCEAN ITíS REALLY NOT SO BAD,

AS I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE I STRUGGLE TO RISE,

AND THEN I LET GO SO SILENT SERENE,

THE WATER CLOSING IN OVER ME TONIGHTíS THE CHANCE,

TO SAVE MY WORLD NOTHINGíS THE SAME,

DONíT TRY TO FIGHT IT

YOU SAY TO WAIT,

GIVE ME MORE TIME

BUT YOUíRE TOO LATE,

TO SAVE MY LIFE.

TIME STANDS STILL,

AND I WONDER WHY I SHOULD FACE TOMORROW

TEARS FIND ME,

AND I KNOW IíLL NEVER GO ON ALONE WITHOUT YOU.

TEARS AWAIT,

AND I KNOW SOMEDAY IíLL SEE YOU ONCE AGAIN,

TIME STOOD STILL,

WHEN YOU CLOSED YOUR EYES

WATCHING YOU GO FOREVER NOW FROM ME

YOUR HAPPINESS COMES TO MY MIND

SEEING YOUR SMILE MEANT MORE TO ME

THAN ALL THE WORLD I COULD FIND.

IíVE TRIED SO HARD ALL MY LIFE

STAYING WITH HER UNTIL THE END

SECOND CHANCES COMING SOOTHE MY HEART

NOW I SEE HER WAITING FOR ME THERE,

BY THE BEND

WEíLL STARE INTO OUR EYES,

NEVER LEAVING ME AGAIN,

TOGETHER THROUGHOUT TIME

A KISS BEFORE YOU GO

ONE LAST TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

AND WHEN YOU SLIPPED AWAY

THEN MY WILL TO LIVE DECENDED DOWN

THEREíS SO MUCH WE COULD HAVE SHARED

WHEN YOU CLOSED YOUR EYES

YOU LEFT ME ALL ALONE

WHY DID YOU GO?

WHY DID YOU GO?

WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME ALONE ?
