The Forever moments

The tick-tock of time
Allows me to see
An authent to an echo
New butterfly to a cocoon
The swan to ugly duckling
The lake to an ocean

The deep times awake
As I can calm myself to yesterday
The flower has fallen its petals
Out of the petals a cradle I will

My cradle rocks with the waves of time
The time of beauty will never be the same
Falling again has no man's knowing
Please take me, take me within

Now I hear my mother from the deep
Sing me lullaby of eternal sleep
With thou replant the plaster call
This and silence we seek to reborn

 

Nightwish

Oh, setting sun
Thy red rays, maketh me dry
They remind me of the one
Whose slumber wakes me in the sky

The bridal bed, awaits us both
After the landscape of death I have crossed
Before my sorrows, I must die
Nightwish I send, through the starlit sky

The voice of nightly winds has awakened me
Amidst all the grief they embrace me with relief
Beneath my dreams, and wishes
I long for thy caresses

The bridal bed, awaits us both
After the landscape of death I have crossed
Before my sorrows, I must die
Nightwish I send, through the starlit sky

Passed away in silence
The flute from the realm unseen
Empties its heart
Making love to me
With its enchanting melody
Light of orion
Shadow of Andromeda
Call of the dancing universe
The labyrinth I must enter
Before thou can bathe your soul
With an age of peace

 

Etiäinen

(instrumentale)

 

Over The Hills And Far Away

They came for him one winter's night
Arrested, he was bound
They said there'd been a robbery
His pistol had been found

They marched him to the station house
He waited for the dawn
And as they led him to the dock
He knew that he'd been wronged

You stand accused of robbery
He heard the bailiff say
He knew without an alibi
Tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom

Over the hills and far away
For ten long years he'll count the days
Over the mountains and the seas
A prisoner's life for him there'll be

He knew that it would cost him dear
But yet he dare not say
Where he had been that fateful night
A secret it must stay

He had to fight back tears of rage
His heart beat like a drum
For with the wife of his best friend
He spent his final night of freedom

Over the hills and far away
He swears he will return one day
Far from the mountains and the seas
Back in her arms is where he'll be

Over the hills and far away
Over the hills and
Over the hills and
Over the hills and far away

Each night within his prison cell
He looks out through the bars
He reads the letters that she wrote
One day he'll know the taste of freedom

Over the hills and far away
She prays he will return one day
As sure as the rivers reach the seas
Back in his arms is where she'll be

 

10th Man Down

Today I killed, he was just a boy
Eight before him, I knew them all
In the fields a dying oath:
I´d kill them all to save my own

Cut me free, Bleed with me, Oh no
One by one, We will fall, down down
Pull the plug, End the pain
Run´n fight for life
Hold on tight, this ain´t my fight

Deliver me from this war
It´s not for me it´s because of you
Devil´s instant my eternity
Obey to kill to save yourself

Cut me free, Bleed with me, Oh no
One by one, We will fall, down down
Pull the plug, End the pain
Run´n fight for life
Hold on tight, this ain´t my fight

"I envy the 9 lives that gave me hell
My path made up by their torn bodies
Man to man, soldier to soldier
Dust to dust
Call me a coward
But I can´t take it anymore"

They wait for me back home
They live with eyes turned away
They were the first ones to see
They are the last ones to bleed

"The ultimate high as all beautiful dies
A ruler´s tool, priest´s excuse, tyrant´s delight...
I alone, the great white hunter
I´ll march till the dawn brings me rest
10th patriot at the gallow´s pole!"

Cut me free, Bleed with me, Oh no
One by one, We will fall, down down
Pull the plug, End the pain
Run´n fight for life
Hold on tight, this ain´t my fight

 

Away

The days were brighter
Gardens more blooming
The nights had more hope
In their silence
The wild was calling
Wishes were whispering
The time was there
But without a meaning

Away, away in time
Every dream´s a journey away
Away to a home away from care
Everywhere´s just a journey away

The days departed
Gardens deserted
This frail world
My only rest ?

The wild calls no more
Wishes so hollow
The Barefoot Boy
weeping in an empty night

Away, away in time
Every dream´s a journey away
Away to a home away from care
Everywhere´s just a journey away

Cherish the moment
Tower the skies
Don´t let the dreamer
fade to grey like grass

No falling for life
A gain for every loss
Time gathered me
But kept me flying

Away, away in time
Every dream´s a journey away
Away, away in time
Every dream´s a journey away
Away, Away to a home away from care
Everywhere´s just a journey away...

"For this gift of dream I must pay the price
With the loss of life´s pleasures"

 

Astral Romance 2001

A nocturnal concerto
Candlelight whispers me where to go
Hymn of gathering stars as my guide
As I wander on this path of the night

Embroidery of the stars
Undress my feelings for this earth
Send me your salva to heal my scars
And let this nakedness me my birth

Macrocosm poured its powers on me
And the hopes of this world I now must leave
The nightwish I sent you centuries ago
Has been heard by those
Who dwelled in a woe

The distance of our bridal bed
Await for me to be dead
Dust of the galaxies take my hand
Lead me to my beloved's land

"The constant longing for your touch
This bitter ocean of hatred and pain
This loneliness I need to be who I am"

"The oceans are alone as I
Somebody take away this gift of mine
No charisma for the beast!
But still I love you forevermore"

"Come to me
Deliver me from you
And from all the days of the Earth"

No last words to say
Only memories remain
A farewell then, my path goes forever on

 

While Your Lips Are Still Red

Sweet little words made for silence
Not talk
Young heart for love
Not heartache
Dark hair for catching the wind
Not to veil the sight of a cold world

Kiss while your lips are still red
While he`s still silent
Rest while bosom is still untouched, unveiled
Hold another hand while the hand`s still without a tool
Drown into eyes while they`re still blind
Love while the night still hides the withering dawn

First day of love never comes back
A passionate hour`s never a wasted one
The violin, the poet`s hand,
Every thawing heart plays your theme with care

Kiss while your lips are still red
While he`s still silent
Rest while bosom is still untouched, unveiled
Hold another hand while the hand`s still without a tool
Drown into eyes while they`re still blind
Love while the night still hides the withering dawn
