Sonata Arctica Draw Me Lyrics

Last updated: 07/14/2012 11:00:00 AM

Blessed with an eye to see things as they are, will you draw me?
Up there on the wall, looking down to us all, you never saw me...
I found a pen, and I outlined a life.
You've never cried, I think I saw a tear in your eye.

Your eyes tell the tale, I will not ask again.
Now I see what you've lost nothing is quite the same.
By the love of my heart, cut my drawing in half, for I think I'm like you... Should you draw me...

Waiting for my evenfall.

Farewell, my passion, you slowly turn pale.
I will long for you warmth, made me feel safe.
I will not draw again, 'till I know it's my time.
I have lived a long life, should I draw me...

Morning's here, I must have....failed

Someone save me...

Short Analysis | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/14/12

Love these lyrics, shows that true poetry is about the dimensional value of the words not using big words to try and sound smart, I don't have enough time to do the whole song and you don't have enough time to read me analyze the whole song but a quick thing that I think many people miss is in the first verse "Blessed with an eye to see things as they are." then it says "you never saw me" which means that the person is not who they think they are(a depressing reality), because if they were then they would have been seen by the one with the eye to see things as they are.

the source of inspiration | Reviewer: Damodred | 3/11/10

Tony once said this song was inspired by a fairytale from the middle ages, about a painter who drew pictures of people, and they died some days after...
This song is one of the best balads ever made, at least of my opinion :)
