A description of the experience
I can't give you all my dreams
Nor the life I live.
You and I know what friendship means,
That's all we got to give.
Who will take your dreams away
Takes your soul another day.
What can never be lost is gone,
They've stolen it away.
Please, don't stand too close to me,
Can you hear my heart?
Take my warmth and lean on me
When we're not apart.
Now our mission is complete
And our friends are here.
Evil things brought down by the Light,
Life goes on until the end.
An alternative version, equally good
Generique (Who Will Take My Dreams Away)
