Lyrics[edit | edit source]
[Nicholas:] She never really had a chance On that fateful moonlight night Sacrificed without a fight A victim of her circumstances Now that I`ve become aware And I`ve exposed this tragedy A sadness grows inside of me It all seems so unfair I`m learning all about my life By looking through her eyes Just beyond the churchyard gates Where the grass is overgrown I saw the writing on her stone I felt like I would suffocate In loving memory of our child So innocent, eyes open wide I felt so empty as I cried Like part of me had died I'm learning all about my life By looking through her eyes And as her image Wandered through my head I wept just like a baby As I lay awake in bed And I know what it`s like To lose someone you love And this felt just the same She wasn`t given any choice Desperation stole her voice I`ve been given so much more in life I`ve got a son, I`ve got a wife I had to suffer one last time To grieve for her and say goodbye Relieve the anguish of my past To find out who I was at last The door has opened wide I`m turning with the tide Looking through her eyes
