In her eyes I see her sorrow
An undying tear
For hours there's no tomorrow
For hours no fear

In silence she spoke her feelings
In silence she cried
For years she has searched for healings
For years she has tried

In recent days fled her despair
Dispelled to a cloud
A wind blew, rustled in her hair
She turned, smiled, proud

From that day I saw everything
From that day I knew
As she'd overcome in singing
Forever anew

I was beyond the stars
I knew not of this feeling, surreal
Though days will pass, I will always cherish you
Though year won't last, you'll be here in me

In her eyes gleams a beast
It rose again, and she fell
Her tears paint rivers on an arid sky
And her pain fed the beast, the beast inside

    Song MeaningThis song is about a short relationship with the main character and a potential lover, about how she had lived a dismal life and had a very dreadful past. When she met the main character, she was greeted with happiness and retuned it for a short time, but her past overcame her and she was taken back down into depression. The main character was left alone and confused.
