Seasons changing now - summer's come
And I'll be on my own
Just bear another day

I have wondered - if I can turn back hands of time
I'll try, just try another way

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
But I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
Then cast me into shades of gray

Life's an endless stage - wisdom comes with age,
Can't you see what mindless games we play

(So the end)
So the end is near - captured by the spirit in the wind
You keep calling out to me

I'll find my way
I'll wee it through

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
But I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
Then cast me into shades of gray

[Solo]

When the curtain falls - I'll hold my head up high
And curse you all
Such vicious games we play

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
But I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
Then cast me into shades of gray

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
But I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
Then cast me into shades of gray
