These days are closing in.
The end has become apparent.
We're only here for so long.
Will anyone remember my name
When time has washed away
The dust...of my ashes?
When my head rests in a velvet lined casket?
What's out there?
What is my eternal fate?
It only just recently hit me
That this life...is just a state.
Mortality fading,
Like the innocence of love,
I'm scared to death
Of what's to become

Of my immortal soul
Of this eternal flame, will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?

All those things you couldn't say, you should have said.
All those "I love you"s lost,
Weighed more like lead on your chest.
All those things you couldn't say, you should have said.
All those "I love you"s lost,
Weighed more like lead on your chest.

Of my immortal soul
Of this eternal flame, will you remember?
Will your heart sing with pain?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?

If I could take back all those misspent days,
Every second of anger,
I would wash my sins away.

Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?
Who calls out my name?
Who can tell me what happens,
When my eyes close for the last time?
Does it all simply end, in a blanket of darkness?
What of my soul, what of my soul?
