Sooner or later, the big stuff comes around...

Well my serotonin levels, they were running low that day
And my self-medication, well, it was getting in the way
Oh, I tried to make excuses, yeah I tried to get away
But one day you are gonna have to pay


Because sooner or later, the big stuff comes around
Oh yeah, sooner or later, all the big stuff comes to town.

Well you can call it information, you can call it experience
Oh, but suddenly the way you're living, well it don't make any sense
Oh yeah the magic hour is over, now it's time to pay the rent
Oh everything you ever had you spent


And yeah, it's a long way down, when the big stuff comes to town

Well the things that used to bounce off you now hurt you deep inside
And you used to think you had the world by the balls, now it's taken you for a ride
There ain't no way to work it out, there ain't nowhere to hide
You could not escape this if you tired

(Chorus x2)

Reprise: Chorus x3

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@Kahiara Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the (… ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.
