From Wishes To Eternity - Live lyrics by Nightwish

1. The Kinslayer

For whom the gun tolls For whom the prey weeps Bow before a war Call it religion Some wounds never heal Some tears never will Dry for the unkind Cry for mankind Even the dead cry - Their only comfort Kill your friend, I don`t care Orchid kids, blinded stare Need to understand No need to forgive No truth no sense left to be followed "Facing this unbearable fear like meeting an old friend" "Time to die, poor mates, You made me what I am!" "In this world of a million religions everyone prays the same way" "Your praying is in vain It`ll all be over soon" "Father help me, save me a place by your side!" "There is no god Our creed is but for ourselves" "Not a hero unless you die Our species eat the wounded ones" "Drunk with the blood of your victims I do feel your pity-wanting pain, Lust for fame, a deadly game" "Run away with your impeccable kin!" "- Good wombs hath borne bad sons..." Cursing, God, why? Falling for every lie Survivors` guilt In us forevermore 15 candles Redeemers of this world Dwell in hypocrisy: "How were we supposed to know?" 4 pink ones 9 blue ones 2 black ones - In memory of the Redeemers 20.4.1999

2. She Is My Sin

Take heed, dear heart Once apart, she can touch nor me nor you Dressed as one A wolf will betray a lamb Lead astray the gazers The razors on your seducing skin In the meadow of sinful thoughts Every flower`s perfect To paradise with pleasure haunted by fear A sin for him Desire within, desire within A burning veil For the bride too dear for him A sin for him Desire within, desire within Fall in love with your deep dark sin I am the Fallen You are what my sins enclose Lust is not as creative As its discovery To paradise with pleasure haunted by fear A sin for him Desire within, desire within A burning veil For the bride too dear for him A sin for him Desire within, desire within Fall in love with your deep dark sin Bless me, undress me Pick your prey in a wicked way God I must confess... ...I do envy the sinners A sin for him Desire within A burning veil For the bride too dear for him A sin for him Desire within, desire within A burning veil For the bride too dear for him A sin for him Desire within, desire within Fall in love with your deep dark sin

3. Deep Silent Complete

In your creation heaven did decree That in your arms sweet death should dwell Deep Silent Complete Black velvet sea The sirens are calling for me Saved my soul thinking "This song's a lie" Sand on the shore is so dry Deep Silent Complete Black velvet sea Brave day sinking in endless night The age will say "This poet lies" Heaven never touched earthly face The age will say "This night was ours" Blessed with the Deep The Silent the Complete

4. The Pharaoh Sails To Orion

"Get away from me! Take heed to thyself and see my face no more! for in the day Thou see my face Thou shalt die!" - Exodus 10:28 A constellation of divine architecture built on Earth A holy harbour - Orion Nautical ascension to the firmament Ship-shaped barrows open my heart to the wisdom of this land Sailing with the Serpent Chimera of a fiendish sandman The Unicorn arrives with the westwind to dream His funeral "Thou art born for Horus dwells in Thee" Slumbering with the ebb and the flow of this foaming tomb "Thou art born for Seteh dwells in Thee" Reveal your face to me and guide me through the Stygian fields Enthral my soul to Sepedet's beams to serve Your will Sailing on the distant seas from darkness to deliverance Tales like the ocean written to the Draco's glance Ruling with the scythe of death you tear our philosophies apart An ancient starwalk to merge into the stars "Open thy veins for my venom Kiss the cobras with thy twisted tongue So shalt thou join the empyrean circus Where beggars mourn and seraphs dance In this twilight cathedral Shall I wed thee, O Bride of the Netherworld" Sailing on the distant seas from darkness to deliverance Tales like the ocean written to the Draco's glance Join my soul the Hunter in the sky

5. Come Cover Me

Come wet a widow's eye Cover the night with your love Dry the rain from my beaten face Drink the wine the red sweet taste of mine Come cover me with you For the thrill Till you will take me in Come comfort me in you Young love must Live twice only for us For me For you Time devours passion's beauty With me With you In war for the love of you (Tonight any dream will do) Not a world but your fine grace Seduction in sleepwalker's land November dressed in May on your face Holding us now the lovecropper's hand Come cover me with you For the thrill Till you will take me in Come comfort me in you Young love must Live twice only for us

6. Wanderlust

I want to see where the sirens sing Hear how the wolves howl Sail the dead calm waters of the Pacific Dance in the fields of coral Be blinded by the white Discover the deepest jungle I want to find The Secret Path A bird delivered into my heart, so It's not the end Not the kingdom come It is the journey that matters, the distant wanderer Call of the wild In me forever and ever and ever forever Wanderlust I want to love by the Blue Lagoon Kiss under the waning moon Straying, claiming my place in this mortal coil Riding the dolphins Asking the mountains Dreaming Alaska The Earth can have but Earth I want to find The Secret Path A bird delivered into my heart, so It's not the end Not the kingdom come It is the journey that matters, the distant wanderer Call of the wild In me forever and ever and ever forever Wanderlust Drown into my eyes and see the wanderer See the mirrors of a wolf behold the pathfinder

8. Swanheart

All those beautiful people I want to have them all All those porcelain models If only I could make them fall Be my heart a well of love Flowing free so far above A wintry eve Once upon a tale An Ugly Duckling Lost in a verse Of a sparrows carol Dreaming the stars Be my heart a well of love Flowing free so far above In my world Love is for poets Never the famous balcony scene Just a dying faith On the heaven's gate Crystal pond awaits the lorn Tonight another morn for the lonely one is born

9. Elvenpath

(In the sheltering shade of the forest Calling calming silence Accompanied only by the full moon The howling of a night wolf And the path under my bare feet... ...The Elvenpath) Hearing music from the deepest forest Songs as a seduction of sirens The elf-folk is calling me Tapio, Bear-king, Ruler of the forest Mielikki, Bluecloak, Healer of the ill and sad Open the gate and let me follow the uncarven path The way to the lands Where as a hero I stand The path where Beauty met the Beast Elvenpath It's the honesty of these worlds Ruled by magic and mighty swords That makes my soul long for the past Elvenpath The moonwitch took me to a ride on a broomstick Introduced me to her old friend home gnome Told me to keep the sauna warm for him At the grove I met the rest - the folk of my fantasies Bilbo, Sparhawk, goblins and pixies Snowman, Willow, trolls and the seven dwarves The path goes forever on Accompanied only by the full moon The howling of a night wolf And the path under my bare feet... ...The Elvenpath) Hearing music from the deepest forest Songs as a seduction of sirens The elf-folk is calling me Tapio, Bear-king, Ruler of the forest Mielikki, Bluecloak, Healer of the ill and sad Open the gate and let me follow the uncarven path The way to the lands Where as a hero I stand The path where Beauty met the Beast Elvenpath It's the honesty of these worlds Ruled by magic and mighty swords That makes my soul long for the past Elvenpath As I return to my room And as sleep takes me by my hand Madrigals from the woods Carry me to neverland In this spellbound night The world's an elvish sight In this spellbound night The world's an elvish sight

10. FantasMic part 3

Part 1 Wish upon a star Take a step enter the land Walk through the air Take my hand Wishmaster's will- Join him the quest for dream A make-believe Is all we ever need Wish upon a star No matter who you are The second star to the right Harbinger's gate Beyond the boundaries Blossom ballet In the great wide somewhere Wish upon a star Believe in will The realm of the king of fantasy The master of the tale-like lore The way to kingdom I adore Where the warrior's heart is pure Where the stories will come true Part 2 A cub of the king betrayed by usurper A girl in the rain swearing to her father's name Belle the last sight for the dying gruesome The beauties sleeping awaiting Deep in a dream For true love's first kiss Part 3 Bald Mountain Night Devilheart endures but light A mad aerial dance Chernabog's succubi Black Cauldron born Gurgi's heart forlorn Pig-keeper or hero On a quest of augury Maleficent's fury The spindle so luring Dragon fight, dying night Dooming might Apprentice of Yen Sid Conducting the galaxy Dreamer on mountaintop Spellbound masquerade The Sailor an idol for the six-year-old in me The Phoenix of White Agony Creek Enchantress, A mermaid in a tale as old as time A Dragonslayer, The Awakener Wish upon a star Believe in will The realm of the king of fantasy The master of the tale-like lore The way to kingdom I adore Where the warrior's heart is pure Where the stories will come true

11. Dead Boy´s Poem

Born from silence, silence full of it A perfect concert my best friend So much to live for, so much to die for If only my heart had a home Sing what you can't say Forget what you can't play Hasten to drown into beautiful eyes Walk within my poetry, this dying music - My loveletter to nobody Never sigh for better world It's already composed, played and told Every thought the music I write Everything a wish for the night Wrote for the eclipse, wrote for the virgin Died for the beauty the one in the garden Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom Failed in becoming a god Never sigh for better world It's already composed, played and told Every thought the music I write Everything a wish for the night "If you read this line, remember not the hand that wrote it Remember only the verse, songmaker's cry, the one without tears For I've given this its strength and it has become my only strength. Comforting home, mother's lap, chance for immortality Where being wanted became a thrill I never knew The sweet piano writing down my life" "Teach me passion for I fear it's gone Show me love, hold the lorn So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me I'm sorry Time will tell (this bitter farewell) I live no more to shame nor me nor you And you... I wish I didn't feel for you anymore..." A lonely soul... An ocean soul...

12. Sacrament Of Wilderness

Naked in midwinter magic Lies an angel in the snow The frozen figure crossed by tracks of wolves An encounter symbolic yet truthful With a hungry choir of wolves An agreement immemorial to be born Dulcet elvenharps from a dryad forest Accompany all charming tunes Of a sacrament by a campfire A promise between the tameless And the one with a tool Tonight the journey from a cave begins I want to hunt with the tameless heart I want to learn the wisdom of mountains afar We will honor the angel in the snow We will make the streams for our children flow Wrapped in furs beneath the northern lights From my cave I watch the land untamed And wonder if some becoming season Will make the angel melt in shame I want to hunt with the tameless heart I want to learn the wisdom of mountains afar We will honor the angel in the snow We will make the streams for our children flow

13. Walking In The Air

We're walking in the air We're floating in the moonlit sky The people far below are sleeping as we fly I'm holding very tight I'm riding in the midnight blue I'm finding I can fly so high above with you Far across the world The villages go by like trees The rivers and the hills The forests and the streams Children gaze open mouth Taken by surprise Nobody down below believes their eyes We're surfing in the air We're swimming in the frozen sky We're drifting over icy Mountains floating by Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep We're walking in the air We're floating in the midnight sky And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

14. Beauty & The Beast

Remember the first dance we shared? Recall the night you melted my ugliness away? The night you left with a kiss so kind Only a send of beauty left behind Ah dear friend I remember the night The moon and the dreams we shared Your trembling paw in my hand Dreaming of that northern land Touching me with a kiss of a beast I know my dreams are made of you Of you and only for you Your ocean pulls me under Your voice tears me asunder Love me before the last petal falls As a world without a glance Of the ocean's fair expanse Such the world would be If no love did flow in thee But as my heart is occupied Your love for me now has to die Forgive me I need more than you can offer me Didn't you read the tale Where happily ever after was to kiss a frog? Don't you know this tale In which all I ever wanted I'll never have For who could ever learn to love a beast? However cold the wind and rain I'll be there to ease your pain However cruel the mirrors of sin Remember beauty is found within ...Forever shall the wolf in me desire the sheep in you...

15. Wishmaster

Master! Apprentice! Heartborne, 7th Seeker Warrior! Disciple! In me the Wishmaster Oh Elbereth Oh Lorien A dreamy-eyed child staring into night On a journey to storyteller's mind Whispers a wish speaks with the stars the words are silent in him Distant sigh from a lonely heart "I'll be with you soon, my Shalafi" Grey Havens my destiny Master! Apprentice! Heartborne, 7th Seeker Warrior! Disciple! In me the Wishmaster Oh Silvara Oh Starbreeze Sla-Mori the one known only by Him To august realms, the sorcery within If you hear the call of arcane lore, Your world shall rest on Earth no more A maiden elf calling with her cunning song "Meet me at the Inn of Last Home" Heartborne will find the way! Master! Apprentice! Heartborne, 7th Seeker Warrior! Disciple! In me the Wishmaster Wishmaster Crusade for Your will A child, dreamfinder The Apprentice becoming... Master! Apprentice! Heartborne, 7th Seeker Warrior! Disciple! In me the Wishmaster
