"Early Mourning" as written by Shawn Milke, Patrick Thompson and Dennis Lee....
Last night I forgot
How the sound of your voice whispered sweet goodbyes
Your eyes, left to die
I'm alone to understand why
Why not one more night?
One last kiss goodbye?
Me sweet love, tonight
I hope the stars still spell out your name where you are
Kiss my closing eyes
Help me sleep, without you I'm so lost
And tonight, I cry, tell me why
I can't live without your warm embrace
Why not one more night?
One last kiss goodbye?
My sweet love, tonight
I hope the stars still spell out your name where you are
I close my eyes and you are everything I see... Goodbye...
Goodbye to you my love
I won't forget you
I'll see you soon
Goodbye my love
Goodbye to you my love
I won't forget you
Bye bye, love

    Song MeaningYou may believe this to be just another love song, but it's not. Many Alesana fans will realize that the songs from "On the Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax" are based off of GREEK MYTHS/LEGENDS. Now while many will think of this as a lovesick song about breakups, I offer a different meaning. The Greek Myth that I believe "Early Mourning" to be based off of is the "Tale of Orpheus and Eurydice". Don't know it? Google can help with that.

    Song MeaningI think this is a song about loving somebody that has died (Disease, accident, suicide)

    "Kiss my closing eyes
    Help me sleep without you I'm so lost
    Tonight I cry
    Tell me why
    I can't live without your warm embrace"
    He's singing about about how he can't live with out his love,
    he misses his love so much that he can't stand the pain coming from it.

    I'll see you soon means that he has hope about seeing his love in another life/Afterlife.

    I know that its based on Orpheus and Eurydice, but its up to the listener to find out its interpretation.

    General CommentThis is a good song... but

    "Im alone too, i dont understand why' should be
    "and im alone to understand why."

    its "and tonight i cry" intead of just "tonight i cry"

    and "i will forget you soon" should be "i wont forget you"

    Those are the correct ways from the CD booklet.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about his lifelong love dying unexpectedly and tragically.

    but he thinks, 'why shouldn't I feel pain? Why does it matter? We all die in the end, and she's still alive somewhere else..'
    [in heaven]
    and he hopes she's never forgotten.
    then in some sort of way he dies, or he feels like he's dead.
    But he'll see her soon.

    amazing song.
    Makes me feel better when I feel like crap. haha

    General Commentamazing all i can say :) so scary how a song could be so breath taking Alesana is one of the most underated bands... :) oh well they shouldn't be underated with songs as amazing as this...

    General CommentI think this song is about a second chance. The words in the chorus "Why not one more night, one last kiss goodbye my sweet love tonight."

    And also, it could be about going through a break-up, where the chorus fits too. But then the last line "I hope the stars still spell out your name where you are." I think that he still wants to see her
