A SONG: SECOND LOVE - BY PAIN OF SALVATION

“Second Love” is a ballad from the album Remedy Lane by the Swedish band Pain of Salvation and is one of the best on the disc. People say that Daniel Gildenlow (leader of the band) wrote this song when he was only eleven years old, which is something incredible because this song sounds far too advanced for someone that age. It depicts a lonely night under the stars – the narrator longing for the girl that he loves. In fact, it is an excellent piece of work. Here is the lyrics: 

Day after day
Nothing's changed you're far away
But I need you to know that I can't sleep anymore
By the nights

Night after night
The stars are shining so bright
Though our pain is larger than the universe tonight

I want you to know I can't sleep anymore
By the nights
By the nights
Day after day I want you to say
That you're mine
You are mine

Year after year
Tear after tear
I feel like my heart will break in two
You came like a wind I couldn't defend
You cut my heart so deeply
The scars won't mend

I'll never believe in love anymore
After this
After this
Can never change or rearrange
What we lost
What we lost

Time after time
I am wasting my time
Living in a past where I was strong
But now I am gone
I leave no shadow when I'm alone
I'll stay forever in my dreams where you are near

Want you to know I can't sleep anymore
By the nights
By the nights
Day after day I want you to say
That you're mine
You're mine

And now three videos of the song: the first with subtitles and the others from live shows in Rio and São Paulo at the beginning of June, 2011.
