One Last Time

Lyrics by: James LaBrie
Music by: Dream Theater
Notes: This is the second part of Scene Seven (the first part being the instrumental "The Dance of Eternity". In this song, Nicholas feels that even though everything in the story seems to click into place, there's something still missing, hoping to figure it out he travels to the house and discovers the truth, (not revealed until scene nine) and realizes that he was Victoria in his past life.


[Nicholas:]
It doesn`t make any sense
This tragic ending
In spite of the evidence
There`s something still missing

Heard some of the rumours told
A taste of one`s wealth
Did Victoria wound his soul?
Did she bid him farewell?

[Victoria:]
One last time
We`ll lay down today
One last time
Until we fade away
One last time
We`ll lay down today
One last time
We slowly fade away

[Nicholas:]
Here I am inside his home
It holds the many clues
To my suspicions
And as I`m standing here right now
I`m finally shown what I have always known

Coincidence I can`t belive
As my childhood dreams alowly come true

Are these her memories
Awakened through my eyes
This house has brought back to life

An open door
I walk on through
Into his bedroom

Feeling as cold as outside
The walls disappear
To some woman who`s screaming
A man pleads forgiveness
His words I cannot hear
