Put all your angels on the edge
Keep all the roses, I'm not dead
I left a thorn under your bed
I'm never gone

Go tell the world I'm still around
I didn't fly, I'm coming down
You are the wind, the only sound
Whisper to my heart when hope is torn apart

And no one can save you

I walk alone
Every step I take, I walk alone
My winter storm holding me awake
It's never gone when I walk alone

Go back to sleep forever more
Far from your fools and lock the door
They're all around and they'll make sure
You don't have to see what I turned out to be

No one can help you

I walk alone
Every step I take, I walk alone
My winter storm holding me awake
It's never gone when I walk alone

Waiting up in heaven
I was never far from you
Spinning down I felt your every move
I walk alone

I walk alone
Every step I take, I walk alone
My winter storm holding me awake
It's never gone, when I walk alone

    Contrary to what the title and repetition of the phrase "i walk alone", this song is not about independence or loneliness; or in fact, being alone. In this song, the speaker explores that which actually accompanies her. This includes "my winter storm/ its never gone", ".. I was never far from you" and even "keep all the roses i'm not dead"and "i'm never gone/ go tell the world i'm still around"

    I am not sure when exactly this has been written, but if it was after tarja's exclusion from nightwish, it may reflect her celebrating her own artistic skill and anticipating a solo career.

    It means she has a love, but torment drove her away. Her love was only different by religion, and she gave a clue to the other to find her and tell everyone she isn't dead. Her lover is the only one that can spread the word. Obviously romantic and I think, a life of a victim agains bullying.

    Lol, I can sing this pretty well. At least, that's what my friends say. Whenever I listen to myslef, I think I sound like a two-year-old. :
    Anyways, this is a really good song, but I wish I could get it out of my head. ^^"
    I'm still working on what I think it means. >.
