The razor cuts my heart.
The coldness shuts my eyes.
And silence is all I hear,
As the winds of change arise.
I live my life while total darkness
Holds me deep within its throes.
I live my life the vision of a man
That no one really knows.
They see a painted picture,
Think they can peel the guise.
But they could never understand
What goes on behind these eyes.
For I see a world of many,
And I see a world of few.
But I couldn't love just anyone,
I had to love just you.
So as I walk the future,
Bidding the past adieu.
Most everyplace I see that face,
But just walk right on through.
For I know my destiny
Might lie on wings of chance.
Still, when I stare in the mirror,
I see no backwards glance.
For I have a tunnel vision
That draws me toward a light
I'm not sure what I'll find there,
But I know I've paid the price.
Still I may never reach it,
And effort alone may not suffice.
But if I do, maybe it's true,
I'll find my paradise.
A land where there's no sorrow.
A land where there's no pain.
A land where there's no emptiness.
A land where there's no rain.
A place that's not a giant stage,
Where I just act out my part.
But a place where it won't hurt to dream,
Or rest an aching heart.
'Tis true, Love lasts forever,
Only her memory slips away.
