lyrics

I had a dream about a lonely boy,
waiting in the shadows of a life
He walks alone, through the safety of the crowd,
sharpening the anger like a knife
He never cried, the day they closed the door
Somewhere inside, I know there must be more
Still mystified - is there a way to remember?

This man is dangerous you can see it in his eyes
Touch his tender heart feel his temper start to rise
Caught in the shadow of a man you'll never be
Running from a face without a name
Looking for someone to take the blame

Inside the house, a world within a world
The eyes that never saw the light of day
Sacrificed it all to be his Father's son
And watched the moonlight slowly fade away

He never heard the voice behind the door
A single word of the world that came before
The image blurred - is there a way to remember?

This man is dangerous I can see it in his eyes
Touch his tender heart feel his temper start to rise
Chasing the shadow of a man he'll never be
Running from a face without a name
Looking for someone to take the blame

To take the blame

He packs away the pain and walks the city streets,
waiting for his moment to arrive
Behind a wall, the devil sits alone
Praying that the lovers will survive

She never cried as love was torn apart
Swept aside by an unforgiving heart
The beauty died -
Is there a way to remember?

To find a face to fit the name

Don't let the moonlight fade away
Cos I need it here today
Don't let the moonlight fade away
It don't have to be that way
We don't know where we're going
But we need the moonlight, to show us the way
Born too late - such desperate times - we cling to love
Strain to catch the unseen voice - precious words
And it's dangerous to your heart
You gotta hear that voice
Hear that voice
Hear that voice inside - t might have something to say.....
