                       There's  a  man    I used to  know
		       Sometimes he still visits with me
		       When it's late and the alcohol's glow


G (I believe Jon still stays on the G chord with little variations)
Is nearly gone... And it's time to awaken

                     And he looks and he laughs at the sight
                     And he asks what has happend to me
		     And I blame it all on the lights
G
But he smiles and says I'm mistaken

		     And there is no use in disguising
		     What the eye can so clearly see
		     That I've spent my whole life denying

 Give me one second  chance, give me one final      dance
 Give me one magic   line,   take a minute of my    time
 Give me one final   bow,    If the moment          allows
 While    he    stares at the scars, saying (to next riff)

                     In a child like illusion of life
		     He imagined the things yet to be
		     But they all disappeared on this night

G (look above...)
Carry on among the forsaken
