Bless The Child - Nightwish
"i was born amidst the purple waterfalls,
i was weak, yet not unblessed.
dead to the world.
alive for the journey.
one night i dreamt a white rose withering,
a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
i dreamt all my future,
relived my past
and witnessed the beauty of the beast"
where have all the feelings gone?
why has all the laughter ceased?
why am i loved when i'm gone?
gone back in time ot this blessed child.
come bless this child one more time.
How can i ever feel again?
given the chance would i return?
i've never felt so alone in my life
as i drank from a cup which was counting my time
there's a poison drop in this cup of man,
to drink it is to folloew the left hand path
"where have all the feelings gone?
why is the deadliest sin - to love as i loved you?
now unblessed, homesick in time,
soon to be freed from care, from human pain.
my tale is of the most bitter truth:
time pays us but with earth & dust,
and a drak, silent grave.
remember, my child:
without innocence the cross is only iron,
hope is only an illusion
&ocean soul's nothing but a name...
the child bless thee & keep thee forever"
