what will i see
when i’m stripped of today
will i still have reasons to pretendwho will be tall
who will be small
a beginning or another endwill the smiles turn to frowns
will all my ups become downs
will each ring of laughter
turn to a tear

please let me know
which way it will go
tomorrow my friend is at hand

who will be poor
who will be sore
confusion or all that we planned

will the warmth turn to cold
will the youth become old
will each welcome
turn me away

why must i wait
to learn my true fate
the darkness is closing me in

who will be here
who will be near
what do i lose when i win
