Space Needle

I remember the long, cold winter
I remember being hot all the time
I remember the black space needle
Casting its black shadow
Down through time

I remember the loss of enchantment
In everyone I’d see
And seeing my own face
In each one of their faces
Looking back at me

Beautiful faces
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then
This is now

Through the long, hot summer
I remember feeling cold in the heat
I remember an icy feeling
Working through the streets

I remember the loss of enchantment
Everyone I’d see
Well, I’d see my own face
In each one of their faces
Looking back at me
My own face
In each one of their faces
Looking back at me

Beautiful faces
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then
This is now

One day comes
And then it goes
It’s all the same to me, now
Another day here is like another day closer to
Getting out of this town
One thing I said I would never do
Was come from a place of fear
Fear is nothing
Nothing to me now
I no longer care
Fear is nothing to me now
I no longer care

Beautiful faces
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then
This is now

We’ve got to get out of this place
If it’s the last thing…we ever do
A haunting song from the rock and roll past
Ooh…
They said that too
Now we are dying just like them
It’s a stranger deja vu
Ooh, the tar people are back again
Sad…very true
Well, they’re back again
It’s sad…it’s very true

Beautiful faces
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
That was then
This is now

Sometimes I feel like, how could this have happened
How could this happen to me
Sometimes the sun shines behind the black needle
But it is never sunny
Ooh, it always black
There is always a shadow
A shadow following me
My music is lost
I am very thin
I am always in need
My music is lost
I am very thin
I am always in need

Beautiful faces
Not so beautiful anymore
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
I was hopeful
That was then
This is now
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
I was hopeful
That was then
This is now
When it began I was standing at the crossroads
I was hopeful
That was then
And this is now

This is now…
This is now…
This is now…
This is now…
