Verse 1

I walk through the old streets.

And my deadened heart beats

Testify to the fact

That nothing stays intact.

Chorus

The waves of time drag away

The most precious of my days

Into the dark abyss of the past.

The flames of change burn away

The words that made my heart sway.

And my turn's soon, but I'd be the last.

Verse 2

I skim past memories.

Unchained from my worries,

I watch from a distance

As my old self's tale ends.

Chorus

The waves of time drag away

The most precious of my days

Into the dark abyss of the past.

The flames of change burn away

The words that made my heart sway.

And my turn's soon, but I'd be the last.

Bridge

I've been wondering,

Out of my body, it seems,

I've been witnessing,

The ending of my sweet dreams.

And I feel nothing in this soul of clay.

Chorus

The waves of time drag away

The most precious of my days

Into the dark abyss of the past.

The flames of change burn away

The words that made my heart sway.

And my turn's soon, but I'd be the last.
