"Someone Special" as written by Marko Saaresto, Markus Kaarlonen and Olli / Tukiainen....
I wake up to the sound of rain upon my sill
Pick up the pieces of my yesterday old thrill
Can I deliver this used up shiver
To how I pronounce my life
And I leave it up to faith to go by its own will

Back row to the left, a little to the side
Slightly out of the place
Look beyond the light, where you'd least expect
There's someone special

A foggy morning greets me quietly today
I smell a fragrance in the wind blowing my way
And ever further I run to find her
I yearn to define my life
Placing my faith in chance to meet me in half way

Back row to the left, a little to the side
Slightly out of the place
Look beyond the light, where you'd least expect
There's someone special

And she's here to write her name
On my skin with kisses
In the rain, hold my head and ease my pain
In a world that's gone insane

Back row to the left, a little to the side
Slightly out of the place
Look beyond the light, where you'd least expect
There's someone special

    MemoryThe first time I heard this song, I was in a grocery store parking lot. It was the end of a first date I had with someone whom I came to believe was the love of my life.

    She started playing it for me and we started dancing right there, next to her car, in the middle of the parking lot.

    I never thought love at first sight was a real thing until that moment.

    That woman saved my soul. It is a true shame that we had to end.

    General CommentIf there's no end, there can be no beginning. :)

    But it's true, you don't know where, when, or what will make you find someone special. It might not be the right one, but people are special in one way or another.

    The first line is self-explanatory.
    In the second line, the narrator is rebuilding his/her feelings, love, towards the person he/she had
    loved before. Yesterday old could possibly mean a short time, so the narrator had lost all his/her feelings towards the person he/she loved in a short time, but is rebuilding them again.
    Or, the narrator had a great time with the person he/she loves yesterday, and can't wait for the next time.

    In the third & fourth line, the narrator wants to share his/her feelings with the person he/she loves, but is unsure. Used up could mean the narrator has felt like that before (going back to line two) or has kept them inside for too long, not being able to show them to the person the narrator loves. The person is how the narrator pronounces his/her life, the person makes the narrator's life complete.

    In the fifth line, we learn that the narrator could be religious, and leaves the power to decide if he/she could start a relationship with the person, to a spiritual entity: for example, God.

    The narrator could also trust, highly, in the possibility that he/she could start a relationship with the person he/she loves.

    "Back row to the left
    A little to the side
    Slightly out of place
    Look beyond the light
    Where you'd least expect
    There's someone special"

    The male/female narrator in the song thinks about the person and wants that person to notice the narrator. The narrator is shy, perhaps unsocial, and walks his/her own road, but wants to be noticed by that person.

    "A foggy morning greets me quietly today
    I smell a fragrance in the wind blowing my way
    And ever further I run to find her
    I yearn to define my life
    Placing my faith in chance to meet me in half way"

    First line is self-explanatory, the narrator is now outside, looking for the person he/she loves.
    In the second line, we learn that the person the narrator loves, is a female. The narrator smells her fragrance (pretty self-explanatory) or tries to convince to him/herself that she is nearby, when she's really not.

    In the third line, the narrator keeps on searching for her, perhaps even more actively, as he/she could be running, trying to get to the right place at the right time.

    In the fourth line, the narrator is desperately trying to find her, as she makes the narrator's life complete.

    In the fifth line, the narrator possibly puts his/her trust in a powerful spiritual entity (God) so that God could make the two meet atleast for once. The narrator possibly does the same every day, walks around, trying to search for her, to even see her walk by, but with no result.

    "And she's here to write her name
    On my skin with kisses in the rain
    Hold my head and ease my pain
    In a world that's gone insane"

    The narrator finally met her, in the rain, she kisses the narrator, holds him and eases his pain of not being able to find her before. The narrator doesn't care about the rest of the world ''that's gone insane'', only about her. The narrator could even be depressed.

    The lyrics in this song are very special to me. I love this song.. English isn't my first language, sorry.

    This song brings a tear to my eyes, more than that. It reminds of me. I am the narrator..
