My time has come, the clouds are calling
December wind has come my way
And now I feel the will falling
All at once it's too late
Life fades away

The night is my wake
All thoughts slip away
And even though I must leave you
Remember I love you

I'll always be in your memory
And I will always be with you when I'm gone

Fade, life fades away
Oh yea, yea, yea, yea
Life fades away

I'm tired of tomorrow
Lost for today

At peace forever

Fade, life fades away
Oh yea, yea, yea, yea
Life fades away

So please forgive me
And try not to cry
I long to be at peace forever more
Forever more
Oh yea, yea, yea, yea
Yeah, yea, yea, yea, yea
Yeah, yea, yea, yea, yea
Life fades away
Life fades away
Life fades away
Away

One last thing to say
Life fades away
