** "Through Her Eyes" can be seen as a {{downplayed}} version of this to "Through My Words". The piano part in the verses and chorus of the former make up the entirety of the latter. Lyrically, the former is much more of a TearJerker than the latter.

** "One Last Time" subverts this. The piano part at the end sounds creepy in a way, but the last chord is a happy sounding chord that sets up the next song, "The Spirit Carries On"
* LonelyPianoPiece: "Through My Words"
