Take me along to a place I remember
Where all of my friends - now they're gone forever
How they love the sweet life

I'm destined to run with the holy
I must wait
Dying inside ever slowly
I'll be on my way

I saw the flame of the candle burning down so low
I danced with my friends 'til they had to go
My spirit stayed -give me no relief
My spirit stayed -gave me no release
How they loved the sweet life

I'm destined to run with the holy
I must wait
Dying inside ever slowly
I'll be on my way

Sitting alone in a darkened room
Trail of smoke and warn out mind
Mister depression overstayed his welcome
Something inside took me away

Take me along to a place I remember
All of my friends -thought I knew them better
How they loved the sweet life
