Nightwish – Whoever Brings The Night lyrics

We seduce the dark with pain and rapture
Like two ships that pass in the night
You and I, a whore and a bashful sailor
Welcome to a sunrise of a dirty mind

All you love is a lie
You one-night butterfly
Hurt me, be the one
Whoever brings the night

The Dark, created to hide the innocent white, the lust of night
Eyes so bright, seductive lies
Crimson masquerade where I merely played my part
Poison dart of desire

All you love is a lie
You one-night butterfly
Hurt me, be the one
Whoever brings the night

Choose a bride
Tonight a fantasy for a zombie
Hurt me, I love to suffer
Your harem's a dream for free

Suck from us and live forever
Rotten beauty
Will haunt you for a lifetime

Come with me underwater
And drown to despise me no more
Unholy, unworthy
My night is a dream for free

All you love is a lie
You one-night butterfly
Hurt me, be the one
Whoever brings the night

    Then again, he seems to have no problem with calling these women whores, which to me is a double standard. I have read several interviews with him where he has confesses to having low self-esteem, and encounters like this could not possibly help that problem. I'm not saying he should get a swell head or anything, but he has no reason to have low self esteem. Why can't he see how special he is and deserving of real love mystifys me. I know there are probably a million women out there who would jump at the chance to show him real true love, having nothing to do with his status. And maybe the groupie part bothers me because I had a bad experience once. My very first metal show I went to, I was in the front row, and one of to roadies led me backstage to tell me that one of the band members wanted to have s** with me. I won't say which band because they are still popular. I was only 14 at the time! I am now 35, and I have never had s** with someone I wasn't in love with. Maybe it's a girl thing. But like you said, maybe this makes him feel even lonlier (i have a feeling that he is a very lonely persom), and perhaps this helps him write. Sometimes I feel that he intentionally seeks out lonliness.
