lights go up, lights go down

it’s been your passion
it’s been your territory
gave all your heart
and spoke of fame and glory
but sometimes life
prepares a different story
you had to leave the past behind

lights go up, lights go down
but the world spins round and round

is this your mission
is it what you came here for?
now that you’re rich
remind yourself what you swore
that broken dream
day in day out, a cold war
you had to leave it all behind
