Forsaken

Lyrics by: John Petrucci
Music by: Dream Theater
Notes: The song tells the story of a man who is taken away by a beautiful woman, not knowing that she is a vampire and is feeding off of him.

For a while I thought I fell asleep
Lying motionless inside a dream

Then rising suddenly
I felt a chilling breath upon me
She softly whispered in my ear
(Forsaken)

Forsaken
I have come for you tonight
Awaken
Look into my eyes and take my hand
Give yourself up to me

I waited painfully
For night to fall again
Trying to silence the fear within me

Out of the night and mist
I felt a stinging kiss
And saw a crimson stain on her lips

I have to know your name
Where have I seen your face before?
My dear one, don't you be afraid?

Forsaken
I have come for you tonight
Awaken
Look in my eyes and take my hand
Give yourself to me

Take me far away
Close your eyes
And hold your breath
To the end of the earth

Forsaken
I have come for you tonight
Awaken
Look in my eyes and take my hand

Forsaken
Fly away with me tonight
Awaken
Renew my life
Now you are mine
Give yourself up to me
