MINE

What are you doing here
This is my fantasy
I don't recall inviting you
And your presence really troubles me

My sleeping vision
Has no place for your reality
I want my peace and I don't
Need you here in front of me

And when I dream, I dream alone
I dream of love, I dream of home
I dream of war, I dream of peace
This broken universe down on its knees

What are you doing here
This is my mystery
You're not my future
You're a sad part of my history

What are you playing here
This is my melody
You were just a minor moment then
In my life's major symphony

And when I sing, I sing alone
I'll sing of heaven and of hell
I'll sing of love that knows no pain
Though there are things I know I'll never tell

What's this I'm reading here
In my obituary
I never knew you
And you never really knew me

Your selfish heart must have known
What it would do to me
You were the only dream
That was never ever true to me

And when I die, I'll die alone
One final journey and I'm home
From this twisted world of pain and lies
I'll find my way to paradise

And when I die, I'll die alone
One final journey and I'm home
From this twisted world of pain and lies
I'll find my way to paradise


THE LONGEST NIGHT

I've travelled this road so many times
Playing my songs
For some friends of mine
It wasn't always easy
But we knew how to fight
Through the longest night

The road can be hard and it's always long
But I bring you my soul in a simple song
And your voices soon tell me
That I belong in the longest night

Through the longest night
Destination out of sight
But it'll be alright
Through the longest night

Seems I've been on this highway
For a million years
Journeyed the joy, the pain and the tears
The wheels keep on rolling
And now I am here
For the longest night

Through the longest night
Destination out of sight
But it'll be alright
Through the longest night

Through the longest night
Destination out of sight
But it'll be alright
Through the longest night


EPILOGUE

Some of you came to see the show
Some of you came to rock the night
Some of you came to say hello
I'm only here to say

Goodbye
