TITLE. LYRICS

Concert version

New dawn fades

A change of speed, a change of style
A change of scene, with no regrets
A chance to watch, admire the distance
Still occupied, though you forget
Different colours, different shades
Over each mistakes were made
I took the blame
Directionless, so plain to see
A loaded gun won't set you free
So you say

We'll share a drink and step outside
An angry voice and one who cried
Oh, I'll give you everything and more
The
strain's too much, can't take much more
Oh, I've walked on water, dance through fire
Can't seem to take it anymore
It was me, waiting for me
Hoping for something more
Me, seeing me this time
Hoping for something else
