Alone at night 
I feel so strange 
I need to find 
All the answers to my dreams 

When I sleep at night 
I hear the cries 
What does this mean?

I met an older man, he seemed to be alone 
I felt that I could trust him 
He talked to me that night; 

"Lad did you know a girl was murdered here?" 
"This fatal tragedy was talked about for years" 
Victoria's gone forever 
Only memories remain 
She passed away 
She was so young 

Without love 
Without truth 
There can be no turning back 

Without faith 
Without hope 
There can be no peace of mind 

As the night went on 
I started to find my way 
I learned about a tragedy 
A mystery still today 

I tried to get more answers 
But he said, "You're on your own." 
Then he turned away and left me 
As I stand there all alone 
He said, "You'll know the truth 
As you future days unfold" 

Without love 
Without truth 
There can be no turning back 

Without faith 
Without hope 
There can be no peace of mind 

"Now it is time to see how you died. 
Remember that death is not the end but only a transition."
