With every changing of a face
I’m someone else.
Some lies get buried or replaced,
Lost in myself.

And I’m afraid I might forget
The times I’ve done the things I hate.

Don’t lecture me on making the right call,
I’ve heard it all before.
Tell me how would you handle locking the Time War?
But please don’t think that I am cold or remorseless,
My hearts both ache.
And those I left behind
Still haunt me throughout space and time.

Susan, my blood,
Rose, my love,
Amy and Rory, my friends…
I never meant to lose you
But these fixed points never bend.

Oh, Sarah Jane,
And Martha the pain
I’ve caused you
Is shameful but still,
I can’t hide my contrition
For the danger I instill.

But these fragile humans
Save me from myself.

Don’t talk to me about “moral high ground.”
I’ll keep them safe and sound,
It’s not selfish to need somebody around.
But please don’t think that I am cold or remorseless,
My hearts both ache.
And those I left behind
Still haunt me throughout space and time.

Like fire and ice and rage,
Like the night, and the storm
In the heart of the sun,
Ancient and forever...
Burning at the center of time;
And I can see the turn of the universe...
And it’s wonderful.
Simply wonderful…

For a long time I thought I was the survivor,
But maybe I’m the winner…
That’s who I am.
Just a madman with a box.
The Time Lord Victorious lives on,
So long as I’m alone.

I try to wash my hands of the bloodshed,
But demons run.
When a good man goes to war you’ll find me.
But please don’t think that I am cold or remorseless,
My hearts both ache.
And those I left behind
Still haunt me throughout space and time.

We’re all stories in the end,
Just make it a good one, my friend.
