lyrics

I wander in to a dark empty hall
A shuddering light projects on the wall
I’m transfixed by the sight of it all…Evangeline

Her close-up shot is a gathering storm
Bright eyes strike from her thunderous form
But rain won’t come and so we are torn…Evangeline

Remember I tried to believe

Evangeline – I thought you could save me
Up there from you’re silver screen
Don’t I know you’re just a dream
Bright light – Flickering through black night
Star shine wasn’t what it seemed
Don’t I know you’re just a dream, Evangeline?

Easy to please and not very wise
An unknown love is my sacrifice
Burning desires is just paying the price…(for) Evangeline

Falling for her is just falling apart
The end can’t be like it felt at the start
Tonight I wish I could win the heart…(of) Evangeline

Remember when I still believed?

Evangeline – I thought you could save me
Up there from you’re silver screen
Don’t I know you’re just a dream
Bright light – Flickering through black night
Star shine wasn’t what it seemed
Don’t I know you’re just a dream, Evangeline?

When you are asleep tonight and dreaming
Will you dream a dream to set me free? Evangeline

Evangeline – I thought you could save me
Up there from you’re silver screen
Don’t I know you’re just a dream
Bright light – Flickering through black night
Star shine wasn’t what it seemed
Don’t I know you’re just a dream, Evangeline?

Evangeline – I thought you could save me
Up there from you’re silver screen
Don’t I know you’re just a dream
Bright light – Flickering through black night
Star shine wasn’t what it seemed
Don’t I know you’re just a dream, Evangeline?
