Dreams and nightmares over with the hopes of future gone,
Strange and eerie silence at the breaking of the dawn.
Holding on so tightly to the lies I did not see,
The truth now laid before me of a dream that could not be.
Past is left behind me as I step into the light,
Future feels so open at the ending of the night.
And yet the darkness lingers with a loneliness so strong,
My heart and soul lay broken at the breaking of the dawn.
Don't know what path to follow down this crossroads in my life,
I thought I would crawl up and die the day I lost my wife
