Shadow Play Lyrics

Tarja – Shadow Play Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Looking at the mirror, asking questions with old, weary eyes
Once a girl who had no name dressed as an angel in disguise
From the corner of her bedroom, light illuminates
Crawling shadows, cut out silhouettes
With the darkness, a dancing marionette

[Verse 2]
Smiled away with such a beauty never seen before
Drowned by rain of thorns and petals falling at her curtain call
This mortal coil year after year recalled a sad charade
Like a shadow play we can't forget
In the darkness, a crying marionette

[Chorus]
Make me believe, I must go on
Life is a warning, don't want to risk it anymore
I want to leave this place so wrong
It left me terrified to lose all I am living for

[Verse 3]
Alone, imprisoned by the echoes of the empty hall
She made a deal with the enemy and let her fences fall
From the dust she built a door to frame new memories
Once a shadow, dancing with her fears
Lights the darkness, now the puppeteer

[Chorus]
Make me believe, I must go on
Life is a warning, don't want to risk it anymore
I want to leave this place so wrong
It left me terrified to lose all I am living for

[Bridge]
There's a world inside, we are holding the keys
One day at a time, not trying to please
Tell me of anything that is lasting forever
You are your thoughts
What are we waiting for?

[Chorus]
Make me believe, I must go on
Life is a warning, don't want to risk it anymore
I want to leave this place so wrong (This place so wrong)
It left me terrified to lose all I am living for (Living for)
I want to leave this place so wrong (This place so wrong)
It left me terrified to lose all I am living for (Living for)
Make me believe, I must go on
Life is a warning, don't want to risk it anymore
