Nightwish – Dead Boy's Poem lyrics

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...

"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 it's 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

    Well, I probably kinda Cheated but in the Documentary "End of Innocense" Tuomas said in these words (translated to english)
    " One day I realized, What if I die tomorrow? And there would be so many people I should Aplologize, Thank you, and tell Fuck you. So I made this song for those people, hope they recognize themselves"
    Original Finnish version
    "Eräänä päivänä tajusin, että jospa kuolisin huomenna? Maailmassa olisi niin monta ihmistä joilta pitäisi pyytää anteeksi, Kiittää, sanoa joo haista sinä vittu. Tein tämän kappaleen heille ja toivon että nuo ihmisiet tunnistavat ittensä"
