I don't know where the years have gone
Memories can only last so long
Like faded photographs, forgotten songs
And the things I never knew
When the skin is thin, the heart shows through
Please believe me what I tell you is true
Wheres the light, turn then on again
One more night to believe and then
Another note for my requiem
A memory to carry on
The storys over when the crowds are gone
All my friends have been crucified
They made life a long suicide true
Guess we never figured out the rules
But Im still alive and my fingers feel
Im gonna play on till the final reels through
And read the credits from a different view
Wheres the lights, turn them on again
One more night to believe and then
Another note for my requiem
A memory to carry on
The storys over when the crowds are gone
When the crowds are gone
And Im all alone
Playing a final song
Now that the lights are gone
Turn them on again
One more time for me my friend
Turn them on again
I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time till time wasted me
Never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
Cause the person I am are the parts that I play
So I play and I plan
And hope and I scheme
To the lure of a night
Filled with unfinished dreams
And Im holding on tight
To a world gone astray
As they charge me for years
I can no longer pay
And the lights
Turn them off my friend
And the ghosts
Well just let them in
Cause in the dark
Its easier to see
