lyrics

Outside today
Drifting with the dust
Haunted by what was

I cried all day
Cause all my hope was gone
My strength to carry on

Crawling home in dying light
To drag myself inside
I’m somehow still alive

I close my eyes
And the dream begins again
Soon I’m flying
Straight into the storm
To be reborn
Lightning flash
And it penetrates my soul
And I shatter
In a thousand righteous lives
For one more night

I won’t surrender
Before the end of time
I still remember
Back when the world was mine

And in my dream
By the power of the night
I am godly
Like a stream of sacred light
And I burst in flight

I won’t surrender
Before the end of time
I still remember
Back when the world was mine

So sweetly
Deep inside my sleeping mind
That’s my way to stay alive

At the edge of time
I’m becoming one again
Now I’m fading
By the lonely light of dawn
When the world is gone

But before I burn
In reality’s return
Just one more wish
May I never wake again
And this dream not end

I won’t surrender
Before the end of time
Cause I still remember
Back when the world was mine
When the world was mine
