"Theatre of the Soul" as written by Bobby Dall, Bret Michaels, Rikki Rocket and Richard Dale Kotzen....
On a cold night in a hotel in New Orleans
came the final blow
And somehow somewhere we lost sight
in our search for that pot of gold

And all that happened I don't understand
Could somebody here, somebody please explain to me
Cause I'm feeling so damn deceived

And I can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately
Theatre of my soul play on child

Ashes to ashes, light the good Lord lays us down
Dust to dust, oh, no
The time has come to lay to rest the years
All the years it took this heart to trust

Maybe too much too soon, I couldn't get my head on straight
All that worry, just wasted time
and now it's much too late to save it

Long forgotten midnight dancer
plays her final role
The curtain falls and I'm still standing
Theatre of my soul you left in vain
Could someone please explain, and I said

I know that nothing's the same
Riding blind on the winds of change
But in my head that scene just keeps on playing

Long forgotten midnight dancer
plays her final role, oh, yes she does
Can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately
The curtain falls and I'm still standing
In the theatre of my soul
Can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately
When time it just keeps on passing,
I got to let it go, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll
Can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately
I keep searching for those long lost answers
In the theatre of my soul
Theatre of my soul
