The Ending to “The Count of Tuscany”

Could this be the end?
Is this the way I die?
Sitting here alone
No one by my side

I don’t understand
I don’t feel that I deserve this
What did I do wrong?
I just don’t understand

Give me one more chance
Let me please explain
It’s all been circumstance
I’ll tell you once again

You took me for a ride
Promising a vast adventure
Next thing that I know
I’m frightened for my life

Now wait a minute man
That’s not how it is
You must be confused
That isn’t who I am

Please don’t be afraid
I would never try to hurt you
This is how we live
Strange although it seems
Please try to forgive

The chapel and the saint
The soldiers and the wine
The fables and the tales
All handed down through time

Of course you’re free to go
Go and tell the world my story
Tell about my brother
Tell them about me
The Count of Tuscany…


[Music by Petrucci, Portnoy, Rudess and Myung, Lyrics by John Petrucci]
