"Eve" as written by and Kreviazuk....
Eve is gone again
Back to her palace, back to her island
Eve can smile again
And run round the hedges in the Garden of Eden

Run the way you did before the nightmares
Run just like before the overkill
Run the way you did it's over darling

Oh, could I be so gentle
Oh, so soft and tender
Oh and could I forgive
And could I die in my mother's arms like her

Eve's a child again
Sing her a lullaby
Read to her every night

Eve's in heaven
Plenty of friends are there
No one the enemy

Run the way you did
Before the nightmares
Run just like before the
Overkill
Run the way you did it's
Over darling

Oh, could I be so gentle
Oh, so soft and tender
Oh and could I forgive
And could I die in my mother's
Arms like her

Like her

Run the way you did
Before the nightmares
Like her

Run just like before the
Overkill
Like her

Run the way you did it's
Over darling
Like her

Run the way you did
Before the nightmares
Like her
Run just like before the
Overkill
Like her

Run the way you did it's
Over darling

Could I die in my mother's
Arms like her

    General CommentYou're right, it's amazing, but I'm clueless about what it means.

    General CommentI suppose it's about a childn who's dying of cancer or a sickness or maybe even killed herself because she's depressed because she was raped. (A child 'again' because she thought she had to grow up now all of this has happened.) She forgives the sickness or the rapist but kills herself and is finally free to go back to her 'Eden' where she can be a child again.

    She died in her mothers arms.

    The 'like her' parts means she wants to know why that can't happen to her and she's going through the same thing.

    General CommentI have a strong feeling that this song might refer to Eve van Grafhorst, an Australian child AIDS sufferer whose story was widely known throughout the world (Eve and her family were discriminated against because of her disease).

    General CommentPlonkeh is correct. It is about Eve who, at the time, was one of the youngest victims of AIDS.
