"The Edge of Forever" as written by and Allen/pinnella Boop Russell....
Pictures of what used to be,
Lie in pieces on the floor
Finds himself in an empty room,
Her voice calls out to him
He opens the door, but there's no one there
No one there...

Draped in a silken glow of moonlight
Through the mist I see, a lucid cathedral appears to me.
Pray for a glimpse of touch of sunlight
Chain our shadow down, night settles in, my love,
You never make a sound.

Love is flowing from my fingertips
Never in control of this domain.
All around me, my essence lay
Watch the vultures circle through the pouring rain.

Close your eyes - and try to remember
Discordant lullabies of days gone by.
Close your eyes - on the edge of forever
A chance to dream, fast asleep your nightmare ends.

As the walls converge around me.
Castles crumbling down, everything is not
As it seems to be.

Once more, I fells I must return
No more will my soul burn. Dawn breaks the ground,
My love,
And with it you fade away...

Close your eyes - and try to remember
Discordant lullabies of days gone by.
Close your eyes - on the edge of forever
A chance to dream, fast asleep your nightmare ends.

Close your eyes - and try to remember
Discordant lullabies of days gone by.
Close your eyes - on the edge of forever
A chance to dream, fast asleep your nightmare ends.

My love never dies...

    General CommentI think this is about a breakup, personally, but knowing this band it's probably some old story I've never read =P

    I love this song, though. Great song on a great album by a great band.

    General Commentsounds to me like its about someone who lost a love one and is depressed, but when he falls asleep he can be with her again, hence: "fast asleep your nightmare ends"
