1. Over The Hills And Far Away

Over the Hills and Far Away Lyrics Artist(Band):Nightwish Review The Song (6) Print the Lyrics Over the Hills and Far Away Lyrics Send Nightwish polyphonic ringtone to your cell phone 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.

2. 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, Runn fight for life Hold on tight, this aint my fight

3. 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, away in time Every dreams a journey away Away, away to a home away from care Everywheres 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, away in time Every dreams a journey away Away, away to a home away from care Everywheres 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, away in time Every dreams a journey away Away, away in time Every dreams a journey away Away to a home away from care Everywheres just a journey away

4. Astral Romance

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

5. The Kinslayer (Live)

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

6. She Is My Sin (Live)

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 a perfect one 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 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 a perfect one 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 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

7. Sacrament Of Wilderness (Live)

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

8. Walking In The Air (Live)

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

9. Beauty & The Beast (Live)

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...

10. Wishmaster (Live)

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
