"Until My Last Breath" as written by Johnny Lee Andrews and Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen....
Cannot cry it loud enough
I'm giving up this ghost
How can I still justify
When you deny my voice
In this nothing I'm not allowed
I just follow alone
Words as weapons without a sound
Echoes dying unborn

Until my last breath
You'll never know
Until you feel the silence
When I am gone
Now it's vanishing
Everything
What we might have been
Only now your prays call my name
But you won't see again

Who can change this memory?

Inside it needs to burn
Worship by the enemy
The guilty take their turns
Watching as it's disappearing
Shadows all that remain
Wishes slowly crossing over
In this parade of pain

Until my last breath
You'll never know
Until you feel the silence
When I am gone
Now it's vanishing
Everything
What we might have been
Only now your prays call my name
But you won't see again

    My InterpretationHow about this:

    "Until my last breath you'll never know" - " Until I die you won't be able to know "

    "Until you feel the silence when I'm gone" - " Until you won't be able to hear my voice again and I'll be gone from this world "

    "Now its vanishing, everything, what we might have been" - "Now everything is disappearing all these things we could do together and how we would be if we were together in the future"

    "Only now your prays, call my name but you won't see again" - " Now you only call my name in your prays but it's too late you won't be able to see me again. "

    A bit depressing I know but that's my translation for this song.

    My InterpretationI like this moment


    "Until my last breath" - "Until my last hope" I try to reach person, I fall in love.

    "You'll never know Until you feel the silence" - "You'll never know it until you pass through this feeling" Until you feel getting alone

    "When I am gone Now it's vanishing" -I feel nothing to you

    "Everything What we might have been" - we could enjoy to be together

    "Only now you praise Call my name that you won't see again" -now you try to reach my love that you'll never get

    My Interpretation"Cannot cry it loud enough, I'm giving up this ghost" - There's no use in lamenting, I surrender, I'm just done with this.

    "How can I still justify when you deny my voice" - How could I even try to defend myself against what you're accusing me of if you just keep on denying anything I could say? I cannot justify my actions because you won't accept any justifications from me.

    "In this nothing I'm not allowed, I just follow alone" - It seems I'm not welcome here anymore, this place has become hostile towards me (that's why she calls it "nothing", because it just makes her feel empty and sad), so I'll just go.

    "Words as weapons without a sound, echoes dying unborn." - Your hostile words came unexpected (thrown as weapons without sound), and you don't allow a reply to your words (not even echo was made, it died without even being born)

    "Until my last breath, you'll never know until you feel the silence when I am gone." - You won't understand what you're loosing by pushing me away until I'm finally gone and you would have to face loneliness and all that will come with that.

    "Now it's vanishing everything what we might have been"- Now, anything we could have done together (build a life together, marry, etc.) won't happen. All the possibilities of that happening are just gone forevermore. No future for you and me.

    "Only now your prays call my name, but you won't see again" - Even if you beg, sorry, that ship has sailed. Not going back. Now you may be lamenting, but still, nope.

    "Who can change this memory? Inside it needs to burn"- Things happened, we can't change what we both did, it needs time to "burn" and turn into ashes so we can overcome it.

    "Worship by the enemy the guilty take their turns" - You may have been misguided to do what you did to me, but you'll regret listening to them (I guess...)

    "Watching as it's disappearing, shadows all that remain" - What we were it's gone, just memories stay (the traces of what we were.)

    "Wishes slowly crossing over in this parade of pain" - My yearnings, my desires just fade, they vanish as what we were.They get lost in this troubled situation.to die and never be fulfilled.
