  • (Are you ready? Have ya missed anybody here?)
    (One, two, one, two, three, four)

    I've been trying, trying so hard
    I've been crying, crying in the dark
    Don't forsake me, the time of mine is near
    Don't ever break me and the world that brought me here

    Sick and lonely, waiting for the dawn
    Sick and lonely, wondering what to do
    Can you hear me, when I say to you
    You give me your hand, I'll give mine to you

    Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
    Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

    When the king of twilight shows me
    I will take ten steps to see
    Forty leaves I pay for freedom
    For a chance to be free
    For a chance to be free

    Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
    Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

    When the king of twilight calls you
    Take a step and you will see
    We all need a quick solution
    For a chance to be free
    For a chance to be free
    Free

    Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah
    Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah, ah-ah-ah

    When the king of twilight shows me
    I will take ten steps to see
    Forty leaves I pay for freedom
    For a chance to be free
    For a chance to be

  • Alex from Fort Mill, ScYeah, im sorry but Nektars version is better. For people who like Pink Floyd, and space rock/psychedelic in general, Nektar is for you.
