Dark blue sea,
calling me.
Songs of waves,
keep me safe.

Sky's so deep,
there's no end.
The moon still asleep,
the bed of stars for me.

How can I see through your eyes
my destiny?
I fall apart.
You bleed for me.

How can I see through your eyes
our worlds collide?
Open you heart,
to close our great divide.

Distant prayers,
carved in stone.
The silent words
they will still be heard.

How can I see through your eyes
my destiny?
I fall apart.
You bleed for me.

How can I see through your eyes
our worlds collide?
Open you heart,
to close our great divide.

How can I see through your eyes
my destiny?
I fall apart.
You bleed for me.

So i just float with the tide through the night
I pass you by.
Open my heart,
to close our great divide.

    General CommentThis reminds me of my friend. She suffers from depression, and we used to be very close, and now we are not because of the depression. I feel annoyed with it sometimes, and then guilty that I feel annoyed, but I just don't know if she cares anymore. It's impossible to see things through her eyes. This song really, really speaks to me.

    General CommentWell, I first heard this song when I was scouting youtube, and found a live version of Our Great Divide. All the comments were pretty much about how we all noticed Tarja was crying when she sang the song, which in turn made me cry. My current impression is that the song reminds her of Nightwish, which it does to me also.

    How can I see through your eyes, my destiny?
    I fall apart, you bleed for me.

    This feels like she's asking the band how could she have possibly seen the situation through their perspective. "I fall apart, you bleed for me" meaning she blows up and emotions run wild, while the band took the pain.

    Open you heart,
    to close our great divide.

    Stating for them to forgive her to close this deep crevasse separating them
    So, there's a little bit about my theory
