Lyrics[edit | edit source]
Nicholas: (Present) It doesn't make any sense This tragic ending In spite of the evidence There's something still missing Heard some of the rumors told A taste of one's wealth Did Victoria wound his soul? Did she bid him farewell? Victoria: (Past) One last time We'll lay down today One last time Until we fade away One last time We'll lay down today One last time We slowly fade away Away Nicholas: (Present) Here I am inside his home It holds the many clues To my suspicions And as I'm standing here right now I'm finally shown what I have always known Coincidence I can't believe As my childhood dreams slowly come true Are these her memories? Awakened through my eyes This house has brought back to life An open door I walk on through Into his bedroom Feeling as cold as outside The walls disappear To some woman who's screaming A man pleads forgiveness His words I cannot hear
