Bless the Child
Nightwish Lyrics


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
I 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 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 us but with earth & dust
And a dark, silent grave.
Remember, my child
Without innocence the cross is only iron,
Hope is only an illusion
And the ocean soul's
Nothing but a name

The child bless thee
And keep thee forever

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

How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?

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

“Where have all the feelings gone?
Why is 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 us but with earth & dust, and a dark, silent grave.
Remember, my child: Without innocence the cross is only iron,
hope is only an illusion & Ocean Soul’s nothing but a name…

The Child bless thee & keep thee forever”

Tarja was and still is one of the best female singers ever, her voice is breathtaking !

Sneed Feed And Seed

can't believe Tarja left all the way back in 2005, its been so long.

@Edwin Sorry without Tarja the band wouldn't have happened and nobody would know them today. Kicking Tarja out was her biggest mistake. They also got rid of the second singer, although she wasn't that great anyway. And Floor is good, but can't even begin to hold a candle to Tarja. For me Floor is at best a last resort.

@Edwin she did not have a realitionship with Marko. Marko retired so that's why he is not anymore with the band.

Edwin

Nightwish is on my top favorite bands , but only with Marko and Floor . Why did Tarja leave this band ?
