Sing with the best at the bar return to a cold bed

Refrain
All the stage is now gone up in flames what is left is ashes and the saddest of pain
for the shadows talk to me
My life is lived but my soul it is not free
I
It is the day before the rain and I felt you so close it was pain
always a word of contempt for me all the world is your slave
set me free

All the stage is now gone up in flames what is left is ashes and the saddest of pain
for the shadows talk to me
My life is lived but my soul it is not free
II
Hell has no fury like a woman scorned but in the end it is
the voice of pain that must be learned
Love that is taken but not returned is love that in hell
will someday burn

All the stage is now gone up in flames what is left is ashes and the saddest of pain
for the shadows talk to me
My life is lived but my soul it is not free
III
Roads of grace are always just kiss away and the words said
hurt but will fade
Random is the taste of love upon her blade

All the stage is now gone up in flames what is left is ashes and the saddest of pain
for the shadows talk to me
My life is lived but my soul it is not free
IV
Where is the equal in the wind going to be made felt her kiss
it burned upon my soul child of love is growing old
start the wind a blowing in the field of life promises made
now cut deep like a knife

All the stage is now gone up in flames what is left is ashes and the saddest of pain
for the shadows talk to me
My life is lived but my soul it is not free
V
Better or worse is for some to see values carved in a heart on a tree
before God I stand which is better live or die to prove you are a man
All my life my words were my bond but now I am crying for the star
I wished on has died questions of age play in memory
was I the one who captured the birth that is leaving me

All the stage is now gone up in flames what is left is ashes and the saddest of pain
for the shadows talk to me
My life is lived but it is not free to be the things I hoped it would be

felt the descending in this
mixed with the repetition
it held emotions well just letting them linger
in the end.....
enjoyed
