Losing Faythe is the twenty-ninth track from Dream Theater's thirteenth studio album The Astonishing.

AnalysisEdit

Nafaryus and Arabelle arrive at Heaven's Cove just as Faythe starts to pass away, and they beg Gabriel to use his voice to bring back Faythe.

LyricsEdit

[NAFARYUS:]
My foolish pride
My selfish heart
Lost in the dark
Blinded by my arrogance

And now you beg for one last breath
And I'm the one to blame

There's a reason now I see
The reason you have chosen
To find the light inside of me
If only I believed

[ARABELLE:]
Here I am
Don't be afraid
I will never let you slip away

Look my way
You must be brave
Find the strength to live for one more day

I will keep from losing Faythe
I will ask for grace
And hope will find a way

[NARRATOR:]
Like a candle's dying flame
With forgiving eyes
She starts to drift away

[NAFARYUS:]
Gabriel, my son
I see the tide is turning
Can The Chosen One
Keep her fire burning?

I would trade my life
Just for one last moment

Use your gift, I beg
May life begin again
May life begin again
