    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
    Thanks to Jackie and Thiago for the contribution to this song.

      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 ^^
