Last Ride of the Day

Album: Imaginaerum (2011)
  • We live in every moment but this one
    Why don't we recognize the faces loving us so

    What's God if not the spark that started life
    Smile of a stranger
    Sweet music, starry skies
    Wonder, mystery, wherever my road goes
    Early wake-ups in a moving home
    Scent of fresh-mown grass in the morning sun
    Open theme park gates waiting for

    Riding the day, every day into sunset
    Finding the way back home

    Once upon a night we'll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It's hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day
    Last ride of the day

    Wake up, dead Boy
    Enter adventureland
    Tricksters, magicians will show you all that's real
    Careless jugglers, snakecharmers by your trail
    Magic of a moment
    Abracadabra

    Riding the day, every day into sunset
    Finding the way back home

    Once upon a night we'll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It's hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day

    Once upon a night we'll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It's hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day

    Once upon a night we'll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It's hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
