Rescue me before my dreams have flown away
Rescue me, take me back with you again
The lonely hours I wait for dawn's caress
I can't forget the silence of the loneliness

Destiny, I wrote the book about the game
Destiny, now I've learned how to take the pain
Try as I may I can't explain the way I'm feeling now
Try as I may I can't explain

And now I'm walking right back to you
And all along I never really knew
That there was heartbreak ahead
And everyone but I could see
That's the story of me

Don't look back to think about the things we did
Don't look back to pretend that's how it might have been
I'm walking homeward through the shadows of the night again
So now the story can be told

And now I'm walking right back to you
And all along I never really knew
That there was sorrow to come
And I thought there'd be ecstasy
That's the story of me

And now I'm walking right back to you
And all along I never really knew
That it's so easy to see that's how it's meant to be
And that's the story of me, story of me
That's the story of me
