Another Live Performance
Hush now don’t you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You’re lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life
So here it is another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your dream is over or has it just begun
There’s a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run through in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didn’t realize and you were scared
It’s a place where you will learn
To face your fears retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind
Commanding in another world
Suddenly you hear and see
This magic new dimension
I-will be watching over you
I-I’m gonna help you see it though
I-will protect you in the night
I-I’m smiling next to you in silent lucidity
Hug me if you open your mind for me
You won’t rely on open eyes to see
The walls you build within come tumbling down
And a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You’re safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of Illusion can you realize
Your dream’s alive you can be the guide but
(I) will be watching over you
(I) I’m gonna help you see it though
(I) will protect you in the night
(I) I’m smiling next to you
The highly acclaimed album Promised Land produced hits like One More Time & Someone Else.
This album’s songs have better refined melody compared to Queensryche’s other albums.
This must have been taken in late 1980s.
