We met that night, when the sea ran high
And I craved for more of that nearlove experience
Those who the music hath then joined together,
Are now but asunder?

Remember me, when I lit the fire
To Keep us warm
On a cold winter morning
Now I pass through the moment
Can I still recognize a beautiful melody?

I play a note, but hear no sound
Have I lost my love or the wings I found
When I was young?

?and eager to please anyone who had time?

Needed to sing the very notes I heard
Had to stay in the shadows and seek for the loneliness
Nevertheless, the price was higher than I realized
I was to live alone, ready to make the sacrifice
Was I in love with you?

My old heart, little harder again
Once the light goes out, everything ends
It is time?
Ready to cause a scene, ready to make the sacrifice
Ready to play the note, ready to end the final show
The only thing I know

The Pain is here
To stay I fear
In my eyes
I can change one note and make you cry
In this state of mind
Silence is a crime

How can life be so feigned and cold
I´ve answered the call of every melody, lovingly
Did I find the answers to all my questions

Or a Gravenimage of me?

If I found the hidden fountain
Drank the wisdom from it´s deep
Would I have the time to save me
Would I have them both to keep

    General CommentI gather something like this:

    The narrator/subject is an accomplished musician by trade, and also has a romantic interest. He runs into the conflict of being pulled in two directions, not enough time to keep his relationship steady while devoting the necessary passion for his work.

    Eventually, his opinion of music in particular starts to get a little warped. On one hand, it's the reason things aren't working out with his *other* great love. On the other, while relationships are unsteady and hard to control, he is the God and master of his craft. In that realm, at least, he can do anything he wants. He can "change one note and make you cry." Even still, he doesn't *love* it anymore, as both facets of his life are collapsing around him, so all he has left is that twisted sense of control.

    As a side note, the studio version has a single, completely flubbed low note right after "Or a Gravenimage of me?" before the actual melody picks up again. It really stands out, and I think it's there to illustrate what I just said, the lost passion but the warped attachment to the sense of control. "I can change one note and make you cry," indeed.

    I conclude with this:

    "If I found the hidden fountain,
    Drank the wisdom from its deep,
    Would I have the time to save me?
    Would I have them both to keep?"

    If I could somehow magically obtain [either infinite wisdom or infinite time, as in the fountain of youth,] would I be able to hold on to both music and the person, not be torn until I end up losing both?
