At Last my journey leads to a new life,

Building Momentum to a brighter tomorrow, A

Change in Me, hope where there once was sorrow,

Dangerous to Dream of freedom from hardship and strife.

Endless Night clears, dawn breaking through the cloud,

For Good triumphs, evil vanished without a trace. A

Golden Age began when I first saw your face,

High Flying, Adored, a god amongst the crowd.

In a Crowd of Thousands, emerald eyes looked my way

Just Dance under the radar away from prying eyes,

Kill Your Kind of awkwardness which people so despise.

Loneliness of Evening steals in, doubtful voices play

Music of the Night, their sad mournful refrain.

Not While I'm Around will their echoes win - I'll never be affected!

One Day More passes, years an endless blur since you resurrected a

Poor Sister wasted, wayward, no desire to start again, a

Quartet of years ago, I was nothing but a bitter

Reflection, perversion of what a woman should be.

Sympathy, Tenderness in your voice whispered to me,

"This is Not Over Yet!" and I'm no quitter!

Undying Love born that night from faith and kindness so rare

Vivez! Long live the passion no longer content to

Wait for It, that glorious gateway into

Xanadu, out perfect paradise where

You'll Never Walk Alone, and neither will I, for

Zazz, that wanderlust for life, unites us forever more.
