"A beloved and very far voice can help you more than a silly physical presence."

(E)
Don't tell me why
I'm so near to commit a crime
When I stay alone here in front of you
(I'm here)

Illusion falls when you're not honest about the way I feel
I know I need only your voice


Saving all my words only for you
Forgive me
Saving all my words only for you
I don't know why

There's a limit to defy
With the vision of the future at my feet
(I'm here)

The night embrace me while
This picture simply blows me away
I feel I'll need only your voice
(E)
And I'm lonely here inside of me
Deep inside of me
Believe in the light in me

And I'm lonely here inside of me
Deep inside of me
Reveal the light in me

Saving all my words only for you
Forgive me

And I'm lonely here inside of me
Deep inside of me
Believe in the light in me

And I'm lonely here inside of me
Deep inside of me
I've never
Never felt myself this way before
I don't want to leave you with my tears
If you'll disappear

Believe in the light in me
Saving all my words only for you

Forgive me
Falling on my knees only for you
Forgive me

    General CommentThere are a couple different ways this can go, but it's obviously about being alone.

    It's far, far easier to be lonely by yourself than it is to be lonely among other people. Anyone who's ever wished more than anything not to be alone knows exactly how feels to be the odd person out in a group, or to be surrounded by a world filled with people who don't care about you because they care about someone else.

    Worst is being physically close to someone and still feeling alone, because you want someone to care for, and you know they aren't that person, or because you care for them and know they don't care for you.

    This song is about loving someone immensely and knowing you can never, ever let them know, because you know they don't feel the same way and you care more about them or more about their friendship than you do about your own feelings.

    There's some interesting duality in the lyrics, particulary as it isn't clear why the person wants to be forgiven. Forgive me for falling in love with you? Forgive me for doing something wrong? Forgive myself for feeling this way? Is the person looking back and seeing all this, and wishing they'd kept their feelings to themselves?

    It's probably not that specific, anyway. The song conveys a feeling, the lyrics most likely aren't all intended to represent anything in particular.

    General CommentThis song never made sense to me, until recently. I was especially confused by "Illusion falls when you're not honest about the way I feel." I thought there had been some grammatical error. But for me, this song is about two people. One or both of whom will not tell the other how he/she truly feels. There could be a fear that telling the other how he/she feels could ruin whatever relationship exists, especially since he/she depends on the other emotionally (saving all my words/falling on my knees only for you). This person is sorry for being so emotionally taxing, but he/she needs the other.

    So, much like Jefferson said. haha.

    "I'm so near to commit a crime." Maybe the crime is suicide? being a moral sin and all for some religion(s).

    Wait...what is this is about confessing? *horror* (me

    General CommentI cant believe no-ones commented on Lacuna Coil. They are a fantastic band but unfortunately it doesnt look like they'll ever get the recognition they deserve simply because they're gothic and because too many people concentrate on Christina Scabbia rather than the band. Oh well. I decided to add this comment for this song because it's my favourite on the album, but the comment; "great song" could be added to any of them. This is simply a wonderful song to kiss a loved one to.

    General CommentOnce again, expectations and limits are a natural course in life. Alot of the time we would love to achieve infinite success. When there is a limit to defy, why does the sky have to be the limit? Why can't we reach for the stars?

    General CommentOh man I love this song! This is definatly my all time fav. by my all time fav. band. But it kind of sucks because nobody knows who they are, yet they have so much talent and potential. This song is one of those that give you the chills and a rush of adrenaline.

    General CommentWow!!!!!!! What can i say about this great band? First of all "Secret" hooked me. And then i listened to "Wave of Anguish" and "A Current Obsession" so on and so on. All of their songs are awesome, very touching and moving. I will never look at Gothic metal the same. This band hooked me. If you do not have this album "UNLEASHED MEMORIES" i recommend you get it. This band deserves recognition for their unique talent. They are truly wonderful!! Cristina Scabbia has a beautiful angelic voice:)

    General CommentWhen we fail, we feel mad inside us, because we feel that the situation could have been to our favor, but for that this will be possible, we required of a sensation of support, emitted of some person in particular, and there is as pronounced at the beginning of the song when she sing "A beloved and very far voice can help you more than a silly physical presence."
