Dream Theater Through Her Eyes

from Metropolis, Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Intro: G   D/F#   Em   C/E


     G
She never really had a chance
D/F#
On that fateful moonlit night.
Em
Sacrificed without a fight,
   C/E
A victim of a circumstance.



G
Now that I've become aware
D/F#
and I've exposed this tragedy,
Em
a sadness grows inside of me.
   C/E
It all seems so unfair.



Em                         D
I’m learning all about my life
                       G    D/F#  Em  C/E
by looking through her eyes.



G
Just beyond the churchyard gates,
D/F#
where the grass is overgrown,
Em
I saw the writing on her stone.
   C/E
I felt like I would suffocate.



G
 In loving memory of our child,
D/F#
so innocent eyes open wide.
Em
I felt so empty as I cried,
      C/E
like part of me had died.



Em                         D
I'm learning all about my life
                       Am
by looking through her eyes.



                  C/G
And as her image wandered through my head
   G                          D
I wept just like a baby as I lay awake in bed.
Am                            C/G
And I know what it’s like to lose someone you love,
      Em                   D
And this felt just the same.



G
She wasn’t given any choice.
D/F#
Desperation stole her voice.
         Em
I’ve been given so much more in life.
      C/E
I’ve got a son. I’ve got a wife.



G
I had to suffer one last time
D/F#
To grieve for her and say goodbye.
Em
Relive the anguish of my past,
     C
and find out who I was at last.



Em                   D
The door has opened wide.
                      C
I'm turning with the tide,
 Am                 G
Looking through her eyes.
