Nightquest - Nightwish

Born to the false world the wanderer
Storyteller the pied piper
On a quest for immortality
Gathering a troop to find the fantasy

Lead by a maid queen of the night
Voice of angel such a divine sight
An amazon to fight and cure
This reality with her feline lure

Patriotic to the promised land
Of never-waking dream

Nightquest a quest not for the past
But for tomorrow to make it last
Simply the best way to walk this life
Hand in hand with a dreamer's mind
Enter the realm don't stay awake
The dreams remain they only break
Forget the task enjoy the ride
And follow us into the night

A merry minstrel with his fingers fast
Playing his lute charming every lass
Joins the troop with a glitter in his eye
"Shall I find fame - or shall I die?"

Warrior with power along the path
A hammerheart his gallantry to last
Rhythm of sirens enemies take heed
For in this war laws are in silent sleep

Patriotic to the promised land
Of never-waking dream

Nightquest a quest not for the past
But for tomorrow to make it last
Simply the best way to walk this life
Hand in hand with a dreamer's mind
Enter the realm don't stay awake
The dreams remain they only break
Forget the task enjoy the ride
And follow us into the night

Come to the Elfland the eldest said
In my guidance you shall not be afraid
I am the mastermind the wizard to show the way...

Nightquest a quest not for the past
But for tomorrow to make it last
Simply the best way to walk this life
Hand in hand with a dreamer's mind
Enter the realm don't stay awake
The dreams remain they only break
Forget the task enjoy the ride
And follow us into the night

First ones to walk this path of night
Lady in black lady in white
Followed by legions of night-time wanderers

Guardians of the halls of heart
When we from my homeland depart
To challenge the gods of emptiness
May the quest begin!
