Judgement Day


I’m dreaming of you beneath the moonlight,
While you’re making love
With someone new tonight.
And it sets my whole soul ablaze,
With the  twist of the knife
And the turn of a phrase.
And all will be well on the Judgement Day.
All will be well on the Judgement Day.

When I lay with you I truly had belief.
And when you walked away,
You walked away as a thief.
‘Cause when I give my heart away,
I give it away for always and always.
And all will be well on the Judgement Day.
All will be well on the Judgement Day.

If it was simply forgiveness,
I maybe could find some sleep.
But I just can’t forget
What’s been running so dark and deep.
And if there was an easier way.
And we both could believe
These sad words that I pray,
All will be well on the Judgement Day.
All will be well on the Judgement Day.

I like to dream of forever,
Like I dreamed of forever with you.
From what I’ve seen of this world,
Forever is all that is true.
And when I am old and gray,
When time brings my body and dreams to decay,
I pray I’ll be by your side
On the Judgement Day.
All will be well on the Judgement Day.
