The Spirit Carries On (Scene Eight)

Lyricist:     Composer:
Nicholas:
Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say, "Life is too short,"
"The here and the now"
And "You're only given
one shot"
But could there be more,
Have I lived before,
Or could this be all that
we've got?

If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened
of dying
I used to think death
was the end
But that was before
I'm not scared anymore
I know that my soul will
transcend

I may never find all the
answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still
have to try

If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

Victoria:
"Move on, be brave
Don't weep at my grave
Because I am no longer here
But please never let
Your memory of me disappear"

Nicholas:
Safe in the light that
surrounds me
Free of the fear and
the pain
My questioning mind
Has helped me to find
The meaning in my life
again
Victoria's real
I finally feel
At peace with the girl
in my dreams
And now that I'm here
It's perfectly clear
I found out what all
of this means

If I die tomorrow
I'd be allright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on
