Through her Eyes (Dream Theater)

Music: by dream theater
Lyrics: by john petrucci

She never really had a chance
On that fateful moonlit night
Sacrificed without a fight
A victim of her circumstance

Now that I’ve become aware
And I’ve exposed this tragedy
A sadness grows inside of me
It all seems so unfair

I’m learning all about my life
By looking through her eyes

Just beyond the churchyard gates
Where the grass is overgrown
I saw the writing on her stone
I felt like I would suffocate

Inloving memory of our child
So innocent, eyes open wide
I felt so empty as I cried
Like part of me had died

I’m learning all about my life
By looking through her eyes

And as her image
Wandered through my head
I wept just like a baby
As I lay awake in bed

And I know what it’s like
To lose someone you love
And this felt just the same

She wasn’t given any choice
Desperation stole her voice
I’ve been given so much more in life
I’ve got a son, I’ve got a wife

I had to suffer one last time
To grieve for her and say goodbye
Relive the anguish of my past
To find out who I was at last

The door has opened wide
I’m turning with the tide
Looking through her eyes

  1. Esa canción es un himno… también lo tengo en un Blog ! Me parece extraordinario aunque la version en vivo me parece mas “punche” que la de estudio…
    Me volvi tan fanático de esa cancion que extraje de la parte final del DVD “Scenes from New York” Metropolis Part 2, todo el backing track de Through Her Eyes y ahora lo uso como pista para improvisar mis riffs…( .. ah.. y lo mismo con Through My Words.. su letra es como un lema para mi..

    En uno de sus CD tiene la cancion “Peruvian Skies”…buenaza.
