Bless the child Lyrics by Nightwish 



Bless the child by Nightwish


"I was born amidst the purple waterfalls.
I was weak, yet not unblessed.
Dead to the world, alive for the journey.
One night I dreamt a white rose withering,
a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
I dreamt all my future, relived my past,
and witnessed the beauty of the Beast"

Where have all the feelings gone?
Why has all the laughter ceased?
Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.

How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?
Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.
Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

I've never felt so alone in my life.
As I drank from a cup which was counting my time.
There's a poison drop in this cup of man,
To drink it is to follow the left hand path.

Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.
Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

"Where have all the feelings gone?
Why is it the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you?
Now unblessed, homesick in time, soon to be freed from care, from human pain.
My tale is the most bitter truth: Time pays it,
but with earth & trust, and a dark, silent grave.
Remember my child:
without innocence the cross is only iron,
hope is only an illusion,
an oceansoul's nothing but a name...
The Child bless thee and keep thee forever"
