Falling into Infinity

Artist: Dream Theater

Album: Falling into Infinity

Song: Take away my pain

I was sitting on the edge of his bed

Staring at the headlines on the paper

He said, “Look at poor Gene Kelly

I guess he won’t be singing in the rain.”

You can take away my heroes

Can you take away my pain?

Take away my pain

Leave the cold outside

Please don’t let it rain

Don’t stumble on my pride

Take away my pain

I’m not frightened any more

Just stay with me tonight

I’m tired of this fight

Soon I’ll be knocking at your door

She was standing by the edge of his bed

Staring at the message on their faces

He said, “What else can you do babe?

I guess I won’t be coming home again.

“They just took away all my promises

Make them take away my pain”

Take away my pain

Leave the cold outside

Please don’t let it rain

Don’t stumble on my pride

Take away my pain

I’m not frightened any more

Just stay with me tonight

I’m tired of this fight

Soon I’ll be knocking at your door

His final scene

The actor bows

And all those years

Are gone somehow

The crowd applauds

The curtain fails

I was standing by the edge of the water

I noticed my reflection in the waves

Then I saw you looking back at me

And I knew that for a moment

You were calling out my name

You took away my hero

Will you take away my pain?

Take away my pain

Let the cold inside

It’s time to let it rain

There’s nothing left to hide

Take away my pain

I’m not frightened any more

I’m learning to survive

Without you in my life

Till you come knocking at my door…
