​Twilight

This song is by Edge of Sanity and appears on the album Purgatory Afterglow (1994).

Close your eyes and whisper "goodbye"
You will never see how I cry
I can recall what you said to me once:
"If I leave there will be a sign"
And the twilight will show me tonight

From dusk to dawn, that's when we arise
All souls forlorn, come down from the skies
We're called the mist by the human race
But we do exist in a million ways

Oh, I'm in the twilight world tonight
And I obey the moon
I'm in the twilight world tonight
The mist will dance and the elves will sing their croon

My eyes will not believe the sight
They dance in trance this magic night
The sound that did enchant my ears
I feel my eyes release the tears

I, I know the answer now
To die I am no longer afraid somehow

And now I know that there is another way for me to go
And now they show that there is life in the afterglow
I can feel the presence of the unknown side
The shivers infest my body, this cannot be denied

Oh, we're in the twilight world tonight
And we obey the moon
We're in the twilight world tonight
The mist will dance and the elves will sing their croon

No way this can't be a dream...

I pinched my skin to make sure I was awake
What I see might be too much for me to take
They dance in a circle just above the ground
And I can see you and it looks like you're still alive

Somehow you seem so relieved
A nightbird chasing the shadows flies right through your body
And then I know that you don't really exist
You're just a reflection in this midsummer dance

I feel my heart pounding faster than ever before
I must have stopped breathing, the image of you fades
And now I know why I had the strong feeling that I must find
This place you once described and to see your final dance
Will we ever meet again?

No!

Oh, they're in the twilight world tonight
And they obey the moon
They're in the twilight world tonight
The mist will dance and the elves will sing their croon

They fade away and so do I
You're gone, I'll always wonder why
You came and made me realize
That you exist there in the twilight sky

Is this a dream or plain reality?
It feels more like a trip to what I never thought I'd see
Suddenly fear took a hold of my mind
I had to move away unless I would go blind

Oh, you're in the twilight world tonight
And you obey the moon
You're in the twilight world tonight
The mist will dance and the elves will sing their croon

I, I know the answer now
To die I am no longer afraid somehow

So I fade away
