  • In the heart of your most solemn barren night
    When your soul's turned inside out
    Have you questioned all the madness you invite
    What your life is all about

    Some of us choose to live gracefully
    Some can get caught in the maze
    And lose their way home
    This is the life we belong to
    Our gift divine

    Have you ever wished that you were someone else
    Traded places in your mind
    It's only a waste of your time

    Some of us choose to live gracefully
    Some can get caught in the maze
    And lose their way home
    This is the life we belong to
    Our gift divine

    Feed the illusion you dream about
    Cast out the monsters inside

    Life begins with an empty slate
    Fragile left in the hands of fate
    Driven by love and crushed by hate
    Until the day
    The gift is gone
    And shadows remain

    Some of us choose to live gracefully
    Some can get caught in the maze
    And lose their way home
    Memories will fade
    Time races on
    What will they say
    After you're gone
    This is the life we belong to
    Our gift divine
