When All Is Lost Lyrics

I believe nothing ever comes to light
Chasing shadows in the night
In a starless sky and I wonder why

Oh, I believe we will never find a way
That darkness lights the day
We never question why, still I wonder why

I close my eyes lost in a memory
Just like a candle in the wind
What could have been, with just one kiss goodbye

You spread your wings to fly, far away
Somehow, someday you will understand
I hope you'll understand someday

Silent pictures speak like ghosts in the machine
Haunting my reflection in the frame
Chasing down the hopeful child inside of me
Where did it all go wrong and who's to blame

We pass the time away
With empty lives, the laughter dies

Is this all we have to show?
Is this all they'll ever know?
Can they find their way?

What went wrong?
Where have all the heroes gone?
Trading futures for a song we gave away

Thinking only of myself, I forged ahead
No regrets, no apologies
Bitter tears reward the life that I have led
A world of lies brings me to my knees

I took the road
With every twist and every turn
The words of wisdom
Is the lesson never learned

Lose your fear and free your soul
Or the mysteries of life
You'll truly never know
You'll never know

Is this all we have to show?
Is this all they'll ever know?
Can they find their way?

What went wrong?
Where have all the heroes gone?
Trading futures for a song we gave away
Just gave it away

I close my eyes, lost in that memory
Like a candle in the wind
What could have been, with just one kiss goodbye

You spread your wings to fly far away
I hope you'll understand one day

We pass the time away
With empty lives the laughter dies
And the colors fade, fade away
Oh yeah, fade away

Oh, is this all we have to show?
Is this all they'll ever know?
Can they find their way?

What went wrong?
Where have all the heroes gone?
Trading futures for a song we gave away

What went wrong?
Where have all our heroes gone?
Trade our future for a song
We gave it all away
