When the Crowds are Gone Lyrics

When the Crowds are Gone by Savatage  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



When the Crowds are Gone I don¹t 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
Where¹s the light, turn then on again
One more night to believe and then
Another note for my requiem
A memory to carry on
The story¹s 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 I¹m still alive and my fingers feel
I¹m gonna play on till the final reel¹s through
And read the credits from a different view
Where¹s the lights, turn them on again
One more night to believe and then
Another note for my requiem
A memory to carry on
The story¹s over when the crowds are gone
When the crowds are gone
And I¹m 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 I¹m 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
It¹s easier to see
