Stairway to the Skies (Within Temptation)

Seven seconds to the rise Can't believe I'm still alive And heaven was waiting for me I thought this would be the end But I know you'll understand All that is keeping me here I dream of a stairway to the skies My angel is coming down from heaven to take me I reach out but then you fade away Whenever you call for me Know that I'm only one step behind I sense this time I may have changed But one this still remains I'm torn and the hate still lingers I slowly start to realize We won't reunite I still have to march on through I dream of a stairway to the skies My angel is coming down from heaven to take me I reach out but then you fade away Whenever you call for me Know that I'm only one step behind Is it a curse or a fortune? Have I been blinded by regret? Redemption awaits My soul is at stake Will I find a stairway to the skies In the end? I dream of a stairway to the skies My angel is coming down from heaven to take me I reach out but then you fade away Whenever you call for me Know that I'm only one step behind Know that I'm only one step behind
