The visions dancing in my mind
The early dawn, the shades of time
Twilight crawling through my windowpane

Am I awake or do I dream
The strangest pictures I have seen
Night is day and twilight's gone away

With your head held high
And your scarlet lies
You came down to me
From the open skies

It's either real or it's a dream
There's nothing that is in between

Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I'll give you time to
Steal my mind away from me

Across the night I saw your face
You disappeared without a trace
You brought me here
But can you take me back

Inside the image of your light
That now is day and once was night
You lead me here and then you go away

It's either real or it's a dream
There's nothing that is in between

Twilight, I'll give you time to
Steal my mind away from me

Your brought me here
But can you take me back again

With your head held high
And your scarlet lies
You came down to me
From the open skies

It's either real or it's a dream
There's nothing that is in between

Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I'll give you time to
Steal my mind

Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, I only meant to stay awhile
Twilight, twilight, twilight, twilight
