​Letter To Dana

This song is by Sonata Arctica and appears on the album Ecliptica (1999).

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... I've 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

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 can't surprise me anymore, Oh
I've seen it all before
But it seems I cannot let you go
Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana!

And I think that I told you: I'd wait for you forever
Now I know someone else is holding you,
So for the first time in my life
I must lie

Lie is sin, mess that I'm in
Love is not the thing I feel now
I promise you: I won't write again
Till 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

Now 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
