or
Queensrÿche

All alone now
Except for the memories
Of what we had and what we knew
Every time I try to leave it behind me
I see something that reminds me of you
Every night the dreams return to haunt me
Your rosary wrapped around your throat
I lie awake and sweat, afraid to fall asleep
I see your face looking back at me

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I've always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

Is this all that's left
Of my life before me
Straight-jacket memories, sedative highs
No happy ending like they've always promised
There's got to be something left for me

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I've always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

How many times must I live this tragedy
How many more lies will they tell me
All I want is the same as everyone
Why am I here, and for how long

And I raise my head and stare
Into the eyes of a stranger
I've always known that the mirror never lies
People always turn away
From eyes of a stranger
Afraid to know what
Lies behind the stare

Don't blame me!
