Lyrics 

In the last rays of the setting sun
And the past days, yeah
That's where our memories run
And all of those times
Still race through my mind
I'm shattered inside to find

When the night comes down
I'm here all alone
When the night comes down
There's nowhere to go

Call me and I'll wait 'till the Summer
You never understood
And I will wait forever 
For a love that's only good
As the light starts to dim
The fear closes in
And the nightmare's begin

When the night comes down
I'm here all alone
When the night comes down
There's nowhere to go

Oh no! You won't be there tomorrow
Oh no! You say it isn't true
I can't take this pain and sorrow
Oh! Can't you see my heart is broken in two?

I'm shattered inside to find...

When the night comes down
I'm here all alone
When the night comes down
There's nowhere to go

NOTES : This along with "Turbo Lover" are my favorite Priest songs. I took some time to look
for tabs of it on the Web but was not able to find anything but JPEG images of a Japonese
Tab book. Since the quality of printing was poor I decided to write it down as TXT. 
I hope that it can be useful to anyone.
If you find something's missing feel free to add.
