On a cold night in a hotel in New Orleans 
came the final blow
And somehow somewhere we lost sight 
in our search for that pot of gold

And all that happened I don't understand  Could somebody here, somebody please explain to me
 Cause I'm feeling so damn deceived 

And I can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately  Theatre of my soul play on child 

 Ashes to ashes, light the good Lord lays us down
Dust to dust, oh, no
The time has come to lay to rest the years 
All the years it took this heart to trust 

 Maybe too much too soon, I couldn't get my head on straight 
All that worry, just wasted time
and now it's much too late to save it

Long forgotten midnight dancer  plays her final role
The curtain falls and I'm still standing
 Theatre of my soul you left in vain
 Could someone please explain, and I said

I know that nothing's the same
 Riding blind on the winds of change 
But in my head that scene just keeps on playing 

Long forgotten midnight dancer  plays her final role, oh, yes she does
Can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately 
The curtain falls and I'm still standing
In the theatre of my soul
Can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately 
When time it just keeps on passing, 
I got to let it go, let it roll, let it roll, let it roll
Can't run, can't hide, can't get nothing right lately 
I keep searching for those long lost answers 
In the theatre of my soul
 Theatre of my soul
