When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

The songwriter inside of me is still alive, that happens when I just play around with a piano.

(At the age of 16, playing a Keyboard for Christmas)

In the still of the night, shadows dance around

Memories haunting, voices echo loud

I'm standing here alone, lost in the masquerade

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

.

When the lights go down, and the silence screams

I'm drowning in this darkness, chasing broken dreams

But I'll hold on tight, to the life I've made

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

.

Each passing moment feels like a thousand years

Searching for a way to dry these endless tears

But I'll face the demons, in this twisted charade

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

.

When the lights go down, and the silence screams

I'm drowning in this darkness, chasing broken dreams

But I'll hold on tight, to the life I've made

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

.

Through the wreckage of my heart, I'll find my way

Beneath the stars, I'll rise from this decay

With every breath, I'll break this barricade

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

.

(Hit the guitar)

.

When the lights go down, and the silence screams

I'm drowning in this darkness, chasing broken dreams

But I'll hold on tight, to the life I've made

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

.

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade

When the lights go down, before the tears will fade
