"The Day You Died" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
A precious child with an innocent mind
Born to suffer, in this life or for another

So hopeless and relentless falls this remorseless day
The dark remains of a violent world

The day you died my tears ran dry
I feel you, I hear you echo in my soul
I failed you, I miss you so
The day you died echoes in my soul

This world's on fire, turned its back on us
A lost horizon left behind

So hopeless and relentless falls this remorseless day
The dark reality of a hostile world

The day you died my tears ran dry
I feel you, I hear you echo in my soul
I failed you, I miss you so
The day you died echoes in my soul

The day you died my tears ran dry
I feel you, I hear you echo in my soul
I failed you, I miss you so
The day you died echoes in my soul

    General CommentIts about the movie "grave of the fireflies" it even states in the lyrics in the album "inspired by the movie the grave of the fireflies"
    Which is a true story about 2 children orphaned during the second world war and there struggle to survive. The opening line of the movie is "the day I died"
