Ayreon - Day Seventeen: Accident? Lyrics




[Reason] You're driving home, It's one PM
You cannot function, you're a broken man
Your past is catching up with you
Only her tenderness can help you through

you see her smile, at another man

[Wife] Did you see me smile at another man?
It was only us, please understand...

[Reason]
You see him hold her, in his arms

[Wife] Did you see him hold me in his arms?
We needed warmth, we meant no harm...

[Agony] Love left you, without me you're all alone!

[Reason] Tears of sorrow fill your eyes
Your cold and wretched life flashes by
Is that your father standing there?
You turn the wheel, you no longer care...

You saw her smile at another man

[Wife] Did you see me smile at another man?
It was only us, please understand...

[Reason] You saw him hold her, in his arms

[Wife] Did you see him hold me in his arms?
We needed warmth, we meant no harm...

[Agony] Love left you, without me you're all alone!
Love wrecked you!

[Passion] You saw her smile at another man
Now you finally understand
He held her in his arms
You've nothing left, it's gone too far...

[Agony] Your memory begins to clear
Now you see what brought you here
You try to open up your eyes
But the doubts leave you paralyzed

[Wife] I smiled at another man
Please understand...
He held me in his arms
We meant no harm...

[Agony] Love left you, without me you're all alone!
Love wrecked you, I am the oldest friend you known!

  5. Tobaaarr

    Super underrated. Maybe my favorite one of the album. So mellow and mysterious. The breakdown at the end "... We meant no harm", gives me chills everytime.

  6. juvelwilburn96 Wilburn

    sounds like a dark goth David Bowie

    HappehPills

    I'm so glad someone else thought the same, haha! XD

    In fact he (Eric Clayton) did Bowie's part in Ayreon's cover of Space Oddity.
