Dream Theater – Through Her Eyes


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

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

Im 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

Im 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 its like
To lose someone you love
And this felt just the same

She wasnt given any choice
Desperation stole her voice
Ive been given so much more in life
Ive got a son, Ive 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
Im turning with the tide
Looking through her eyes
