Music & Lyrics: "Sole Survivor" by Asia (Asia, 1982)



Asia



~~*~~



When I ride the hounds of hell
Twist my foot, I nearly fell
I was lucky I was alive
One look back, I could have died

I was the sole survivor
Sole survivor
Sole survivor
Solitary fire

When I saw it I was amazed
One-time glory right in my gaze
I saw the sorrow, I saw the joy
Right in the darkness none could destroy

I am the sole survivor
Sole survivor
Sole survivor
Solitary fire

And from the wreckage I will arise
Cast the ashes back in their eyes
See the fire, I will defend
Just keep on burnin' right to the end!
