Sonata Arctica Don't Say A Word Lyrics

Last updated: 09/29/2013 06:30:39 PM

I am your poison candygram
The love that's meant to fade away
Vade retro, alter ego, move aside, I'm choking on this life
I think I tolerate your hate, as long as you're afraid
All I wanted was to be with you
(And suffer every day)

Under the moon I hold a wake for a promise torn
Mortally wounded, feelings sheltered me
Once again my shadow will enter your life
Time to walk with me the last mile

I read a book about a man, a love, a woman, how they died
How I was waved aside
(Listen how the headless doves cry)
I truly see a madman in the mirror when I'm weak
I spent a year in love before I realized it's me

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you're lying
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why
Could I let you wait out the night

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing"
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit and watch and learn
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word

It won't be long now, love, like mist I slowly fill the room
I place a black candle on your chest
The path of night is manifest
I never wanted us to end up in this catatonic phase
It was not me who ran away, you made me stray

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you lie
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why
Settling the score, we pass the twilight

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing"
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit and watch and learn
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word

Strawberry blonde, your stranglehold on my heart is bound to end
I suppose, life sometimes it doesn't go the way it was meant
Though you never were a believer
I assure you: I won't die before you
You read the book now,
The part “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust”

Short is the flight of this little starling
Love sounds familiar, but the emotion escapes me
I will carpe the diem while it's still here
And see how the fear of death becomes her

We had it all so sweet
Made for me, you, indeed
Big secret, small the lie
Don't cry for me, oh, argentite

No word you say tonight
Can make this be alright
I'll help you follow through
Remember this?
("Pacta sunt servanda")

The wounds are too deep,
I need to keep the scars
to prove there was a time
When I loved something more than life

Unlike the last time here,
I now have the means and a will sincere
Your knight is nowhere near
(Unfortunate for you, this makes me your God)

Closing your eyes, don't ever say you love me, whore
You never meant a word, I know you lied
When there is life, there is despair, indulge me now
And stay alive this night
I promise you the end before the first light arrives

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing"
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit and watch and learn
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word

Mother always said “My son, do the noble thing"
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit and watch and learn
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word

Oh wow | Reviewer: parallel | 9/17/11

Okay, I don't want to start any wars or anything, but this is far from my favourite Sonata song. The purpose of this review: I do really think that the section from "Strawberry blonde" to "your God" is the best sounding, most amazingly played and sung music available today. The only thing near to catching up with it is Nevermore's "Stare into the sky" verse on The Blue Marble and the New Soul, and it's still a fair way off.

And I have to say that this song was *awesome* live! (And the band are really nice. We hung around for hours out back and I nearly got killed by the drumset XD I was on crutches atthe bottom of a hill and it started rolling XD)



Not quite end of the story | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/5/11

While yes, you are correct in this previously being the end of the series, on the latest album, The Days Of Grays, another song was released in the series, which acts as the closing of the series describing Caleb's death. The song is Juliet, and it is a truly amazing song, in my opinion, the same as the rest of the series, which is also referred to as "The Caleb Saga"



End of the story | Reviewer: Dante | 12/12/10

For those that don't know, "Don't Say a Word" is the final chapter in a three song story about the same man, the other two being "Caleb" and "End of this Chapter". Bringing closure to the past, he gets his revenge for being manipulated.

I'm living that moment | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/11/09

"closing your eyes, don't ever say you love me whore, you never meant a word I know you lied" yeah I just learned what that meant, sonata once again sings about something that happens in real life. I will always love this band
S.A FOR EVER!!!



Epixc | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/17/09

The power, such powerful emotions in this song. It's just brilliant. And lyrics...omg is the only thing i can say. It's truly epic, and I can say this without a shadow of a doubt: It's their best song.



Heh | Reviewer: WarheaD | 9/19/08

I know the song was amazing, and you'll be all drooling when you'll hear that Sonata preformed with nightwish, and Sonata played "Don't say a word"
It was truly an epic concert :D And not too far from my home XD



This song LIVE | Reviewer: Sargeras | 1/21/08

*quote* "Imagine it being played live :D. I'm a Finn so its a privilege for me to get there. Sonata is best!"

This is one of my favorite Sonata´s songs... its just amazing a very powerful. I have the Disc and DvD Sonata released of a concert in Tokio, FOR THE SAKE OF REVENGE... they play this song there.. its just amazing. :D



Amazing | Reviewer: Ted Spartz | 1/17/08

This song is absolutly wonderful i cant believe how luckly i was when my friend left his cd in my car 1 day. I was bored so i threw it in and discovered this song. And this band. Every note word and movement is amazing. Along with nightwish this band is in my top 3 for this type of music. And in the top 5 for my favorite bands.



RE:Almost perfect! | Reviewer: Rosie | 1/14/08

It is argentite, according to SA's official site. Argentite is actually a word, it's a mineral.

Awesome song, one of my favourites from SA.
