Dream Theater – Fatal Tragedy lyrics

Music by dream theater
Lyrics by john myung

Alone at night
I feel so strange
I need to find
All the answers to my dreams

When I sleep at night
I hear the cries
What does this mean?

I shut the door and traveled to another home
I met an older man, he seemed to be alone
I felt that I could trust him
He talked to me that night;

"lad did you know a girl was murdered here? "
"this fatal tragedy was talked about for years"
Victoria's gone forever
Only memories remain
She passed away
She was so young

Without love
Without truth
There can be no turning back

Without faith
Without hope
There can be no peace of mind

As the night went on
I started to find my way
I learned about a tragedy
A mystery still today

I tried to get more answers
But he said, "you're on your own."
Then he turned away and left me
As I stand there all alone
He said, "you'll know the truth
As you future days unfold"

Without love
Without truth
There can be no turning back

Without faith
Without hope
There can be no peace of mind


"now it is time to see how you died. remember that death is not the endbut only a transition."
