Tell you 'bout the future
Of a heart that heals with time...
Still I see in you
Someone I once know
Way back in the past
When my song had words
And the words were meant for you
Tell me when did our future end?
Now I see the truth staring out a window
At love gone astray
Running from herself
Trying to make believe
That it was just a dream
'Cause when love asks of you
More than you can give
You find a way to disappear
Don't you think it's strange
That love could make us strangers?
To be your friend
You ask too much of me
For now I need some time to be
Alone, yes alone
Isn't it strange to love alone
I know 'bout the future
Only time will tell
If you see in me
Someone you once know
A shadow in your life
Before your song had words
And your words will ring true
About love you left in the flames
Well when the smoke clears and I rise
You'll see pain deep in my eyes
But you won't see a tender heart afraid of breaking
The time for tears is yesterday
The time for my life is now
It's time to say
My heart will rise again
I will rise again
