Song of the Week 24/05/2007 Dream Theater - Hollow Years

Oops update failure (also, something was wrong with blogger last week for some reason). Well, seeing as how I can't study atm for a couple of reasons (because I don't have enough study material) and I'm just consuming my time talking with someone special ;) I'll put up a small post. Sorry for the no update last week, it's just that there were probably too many songs for one to stand out, or, mexican culture is kicking in.

Well anyway, I never thought I would ever put a Dream Theater song that wasn't Octavarium or Finally Free, my two favorites. Well whatever, this song is up there with the melancholic ones I love to post as Songs of the Week, maybe it's part of my personality? It's for you to decide. It's a nice slow song, dealing with metaphorical issues with two apparently sad people who suddenly realize some things. The moment we lift the shadow of sad moments from which we hide, is the crashing down of hollow years, maybe we lost all of those years in which we carried the burden of heavy troubles hence the hollow years. Makes sense? If it does, you'll like the song, if it doesn't you can just read the lyrics ;) and interpret it any way you want. I don't care. Well actually I do, you can post about it, I'd love to hear it.

Dream Theater - Hollow Years Lyrics

He's just the kind of man
You hear about
Who leaves his family
For an easy out
They never saw the signs
He never said a word
He couldn't take another day

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you'll understand

Once the stone
You're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that's raining
Over your head disappears
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

She's not the kind of girl
You hear about
She'll never want another
She'll never be without
She'll give you all the signs
She'll tell you everything
Then turn around and walk away

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you'll understand

Once the stone
You're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that's raining
Over your head disappears
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you'll understand

Once the stone
You're crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that's raining
Over your head disappears
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

Once the stone
You're crawling under...
The noise that you'll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years
