I never was alive
'Til I lost the light
'Til the fall of night
'Til my last defense was gone

I had lost my voice
In the static noise
I was naked and wandering
There was no one around

In the dead of the night
Love came to my side
I opened wide my chest Her words became my light
I don't remember much more
Wondering why do I forget my dreams?

Our town had a street
Where sometimes you'd meet
A man with two faces
One of them good

On the other side
There was no more light
We were younger then
We believed in a cure

There is nothing more
That I could endure
Had you not been there
Caught in my wounded stare
I called my brother up on the telephone
He knows something that no one else knows

He said, "In the dead of the night
Love comes to your side
She lifts you when you've fallen down
She gives you back your eyes
So just say yes again no matter where you've been
The resolution closer than it seems"

I pray we not forget our dreams
