"The Night That Once Was Mine" as written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown....
I've climbed this hill too many times
Now passion seems like it's a crime
My memories leaves dead on the line
Tomorrow's finished all that fine, fine wine

I've run this road so many years
Remembering how I lived each curve
And now my screen's filled up with tears
I can't see through the pain I learned

No future now without the fear
I'll get too near to love that burns
The night was once, the night was twice
The night was mine

I dealt in dreams until they faded
Into ghosts in headlong flight
Felt every mile that I paid

For reaching out towards the light
The dancers thought it was a raid
And disappeared into the night
That once was mine

I've sailed the storm so many ways
Desires vanish in the haze
There's only ashes from the blaze
The future's losing all the long love days

I've flown these skies both dark and light
But now my heart's blocked up with snow
Most moments felt so very right
But I can't break the ice that grows

No morning now without the chance
Of petals falling from the rose
The night was once, the night was twice
The night was mine

I traded steel until it fractured
Into fields of crumbling rust
All the precautions that I packed

Were colors I could never trust
The swimmer's getting out of sight
She's disappeared into the night
That once was mine

I traded steel until it fractured
Into fields of crumbling rust
All the precautions that I packed

Were colors I could never trust
The swimmer's getting out of sight
She's disappeared into the night
That once was mine
