Lyrics:

 

 

Sometimes a film,

Sometimes a photograph...

Sometimes a rose,

Sometimes a looking glass...

 

Enchanter of souls

Your dreams still unfold...

 

Sometimes a child,

Sometimes a tragedy...

Sometimes a truth,

Sometimes a fantasy...

 

Enchanter of souls

Your dreams still unfold...

 

Sign your name with a star...

 

It's all a game,

Only a pantomine...

A deadly parade,

Sadly to end divine...

 

Enchanter of souls

Your dreams still unfold

 

Sign your name with a star...
