    Lyrics

    Dana, my darling, I'm writing to you
    'Cause your father passed away, it was a beautiful day
    And I don't want to bother you anymore,
    I used to hope you'd come back
    But not anymore Dana.
    My eyes might have betrayed me, but I have seen
    Your picture on the cover of a filthy magazine
    And I think my heart just cannot handle that
    Dana, my darling, would be so bad.

    Dana, my darling, I'm writing to you.
    'Cause Your mother passed away it was a really rainy day
    And I didn't mean to bother you anymore
    Your mother wished: Come visit your fathers grave, Dana
    Your father disowned you because you have sinned
    But he did forgive you in condition he was in
    And I hope you won't do those things anymore
    Dana my darling I'm waiting for

    Little Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
    How I wish that my Dana was here
    Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
    To travel away, far away

    No, you cannot surprise me anymore
    I have seen it all before
    But it seems I cannot let you go
    Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana

    I don't think that I told you,
    I'd wait for you forever
    Now I know someone else's holding you,
    So, for the first time in my life - I must lie
    Lie's a sin, mess that I am in,
    Love is not the thing I feel now
    I promise you: I won't write again
    'til the sun sets behind your grave

    Dana, oh, Dana I'm writing to you,
    I heard you passed away it was a beautiful day
    I'm old and I feel time will come for me,
    My diary's pages are full of thee

    Little Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
    How I wish that my Dana was here
    Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
    To travel away, far away

    Little Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
    How I wish that my Dana was here
    Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
    To travel away, far away

    Little Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
    How I wish that my Dana was here
    Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
    To travel away, far away

      Omfg.. Two years ago I listened to this song for the whole summer. This was the first song with sonata I heard, and now they're my absolute favourite band.

      This song still makes me cry sometimes, and it's the greatest song I've ever heard. I'm such a sucker for these kinds of songs.

      Sonata made me believe in eternal love ^^

      Från en stolt halvfinne ^^
