All right, let's do this

One, two, three

I want a cup that overflows with love
Although it's not enough to fill my heart
I want a barrel full of love
Although I know it's not enough to fill my heart

I want a river full of love
But then I know the holes will still remain
I need an ocean full of love
Although I know the holes will still remain

And this Swiss-cheese heart knows
Only kindness can fill its holes
And love can dry my tears
As pain disappears

I need a miracle and not someone's charity
One drop of love from him
And my heart's in ecstasy
The high that is sending me
Is most likely ending me
I need a miracle and not someone's charity

Fill up my heart with love
Oh, you'd be amazed at how little I need from him
to feel complete here and now
Stirring within me
are these feelings I can't ignore
I need a miracle and that's what I'm hoping for

I need a miracle and not someone's charity
One drop of love from him
And my heart's in ecstasy
The high that is sending me
Is most likely ending me
I need a miracle and not someone's charity now
Oh, baby

Anybody's love but his will never fill this space within me
Now doctor, give me what I need to free my heart from misery

    General CommentNot just anyone's though, someone specific in her life.

    I'm wondering how this song even relates to the game though. Heather mentions no love interest (unless she means her father but the song doesn't really convey a family kind of love >_>)

    General CommentI see this song and wonder how Akira could compose such a poetic and marvelous masterpiece. This has no relevence to the game of Silent Hill 3. I am thinking that this song was put onto the soundtrack because of the style of the song. It is a great way to end a CD!

    The woman in this song has a deep yearning for a certain man. I know this is an obvious statement but there is more. He almost deprives her of his love (possibly unintentional, she hasn't told him yet.) I am guessing that they flirt and he is a great friend of hers that she is JUST starting to think of as MORE THAN a friend. She has had past relationships with different people and they all meant nothing (especially compared to this feeling she has towards her "friend") and he is the only person she has ever loved. He is the only one that can fill her, make her. She finally knows love but will he love her?

    General Commentanother way to read it is that this man she's looking for is the one that could fill the holes the darkness put in her when she was remade and while she dones not know this she can feel it giveing the reasion for her deepressed look thew the game. so she hopes this man could take the darkness ways cause shes tryed her self but can't stop the pain. the high thats ending her could be the loss of her human half and it would see like it would take a miracle man to save her.

    General CommentAcording to "The Book of Lost Memories", this song is talking about sorrowfulness.

    It does sound like a woman is interested in a cirtain man who rejects her, like alyssaelaine said. That could be like Heather and Stanley in the game, exept Heather is a woman and Stanley is a man, so its reversed.

    It could also tie in with Heather (and/or Douglas, because this song plays in a scene with him talking about his son) losing a very important person to her. That would explain the sorrowfulness.

    I don't know. I'm just sort of rambling.

    General CommentMy opinion doesn't matter much, but I think she wants her father's love above all other love. Since...

    (SPOILER!)

    Harry died in the game, then Douglas must be the substitute. It's kind of like Heather is asking him to love and care for her until she's old enough to live on her on.

    General CommentWell Heather pretty much is old enough to live on her own seeing as she's able to cope with going out for half the day by herself.

    But I really think that the song is indirectly talking about Alessa wanting to feel loved by her mother Dahlia.

    Or it could also be about Claudia wanting to feel loved by Lenard as Vincent stated that she was abused by him.

    I moreso think it's the second theory as I think that McGlynn's voice sounds simmilair to Claudia's.
