Living in the shadow of darkness
And wondering why.
Knowing that there but for fortune
Go you and i.
Temptation has turned you
And twisted the knife.
The world that we bought into
Is no longer mine.

Love lost, you pay the cost of a lonely way -
This time you chose to go too far.

How does it feel to be on top of the world?
Looking around, you see the ground below.
How does it feel to be on top of the world?
Living a life that only you can know.

Say goodbye to the old days,
They're over and gone.
Facing up to the realization
That we've got to move on.
This love and attraction
Has taken it's toll.
Your lies and illusions
Left me out in the cold.

Love lost, you pay the cost of a lonely way -
This time you chose to go too far.

How does it feel...
