The ticktock 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 with thee
Now I hear my mother from the deep Sing me a lullaby of eternal sleep With thou replant the plaster call This and silence we seek to reborn
Oh, setting Sun, Thy red rays maketh me cry. 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 blame my soul With an age of peace"
