"Don't ask me to surrender"
Her voice fell tired and spent
"My hopes and dreams, a silent heart
I carry here within"

her outstretched wings, left tattered
A sail aged with rust
"a breath in time, that's yours and mine...
it belongs to only us"

And I will write her name and cast it to the sky
silhouettes recede into a mother's tearful eyes
a host of angels clamor to her side
a light dissolves to kiss the wind
release the dragonfly

See the rose within the field of white
She's searching for the grail
but the rain descends to snatch the light
from distant dying suns
a faint resounding in the night
calls angels wings to beat
singing silent lip-sewn songs
but the distance is too deep ..

And I will write her name and cast it to the sky
silhouettes recede into a mother's tearful eyes
a host of angels clamor to her side
a night dissolved to kiss the wind
release the dragonfly

And I will write her name and cast it to the sky
as precious moments will slip away in time
angels fall from grace, and sometimes heroes die
but tonight, my love, ascend the gates,
release the dragonfly

"sometimes angels fall, but love will never die
tonight my soul is something more" -
calls the dragonfly.

    General CommentI'm not compleatly sure of this songs meaning, but I tink its a story on how dragonflys carry and help the dead soul to heaven. And Angles stand near the emotoinaly wounded on earth.

    General CommentI think that Dragonfly is a woman. I think she is probably dying, and he is trying to let her go. "Her voice fell tired and spent" "her outstretched wings, left tattered" indicate that she is worn down by life.
    "a breath in time, that's yours and mine...it belongs to only us" This could indicate a last breath?
    "And I will write her name and cast it to the sky, silhouettes recede into a mother's tearful eyes, a host of angels clamor to her side" These all indicate death, and that he is trying to "release the dragonfly", as in trying to accept her death, and let her go.
    "but tonight, my love, ascend the gates, release the dragonfly" These seems to be where he decides it is what is best for her, and at the end "sometimes angels fall, but love will never die tonight my soul is something more"-calls the dragonfly." This also indicates the woman is the dragonfly, as it is her calling the words, and also that she is letting go and moving on to become something more.
