Lyrics – Gone At Dawn

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

I’ve seen this place sometime before

It looks distant now to view it from a different angle

My life keeps flashing before my eyes

A panoramic view of who I’ve been

*

Where did it go I saw

A part of me I used to know

Where did it go now it’s over just

As foggy as a dream, once more

It died in the night now it’s gone at dawn

Gone at dawn

*

I’m sure I caught a glimpse of colors lost to me

As I search my memory for who I used to be

And then I said that I’ll put my life on hold

Return, I’m changed, the new and the old meet

*

Where did it go I saw

A part of me I used to know

Where did it go now it’s over just

As foggy as a dream, once more

It died in the night now it’s gone

*

I caught a glimpse of who I used to be

Now it’s gone at dawn

I see that someone right in front of me

Now it’s gone at dawn

And I saw my childhood home in another world

And I’ve lost all that I used to be now I see

Well I’m sure I’ve seen this place one day sometime before

When I used to feel my feet were swept from under me

I felt it could go either way

I changed more than I ever thought possible

*
