A Lifetime Of Adventure
Tuomas Holopainen Lyrics


To be rich is
To still remember
To treasure your 1st dime
To have a chance to say farewell

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive a memory

Far-off lands quests of old
Self-respect true grit
Never cared what fortune might buy
To seek is to be rich

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive a memory

All the strangers on your path
Crossroads, the letters from home
The cooling embers of a Yuletide hearth
All the sounds of wilderness
The truth in which you roamed
Now your lost Rosebud has brought you back home

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive a memory

Lyrics for those who are interested :)

To be rich is to still remember
To treasure your first dime
To have a chance to say farewell

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope and many miles to go


Promises to keep
Countless gold fields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

Far off lands, quests of old
Self respect, true grit
Never cared of what a fortune might buy
To seek is to be rich

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope and many miles to go


Promises to keep
Countless gold fields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

All the strangers on your path
Crossroads the letters from home
The cooling embers of a yuletide hearth
All the sounds of wilderness
The truth in which you roamed
Now your lost Rosebud has brought you back home

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope and many miles to go


Promises to keep
Countless gold fields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope and many miles to go


Promises to keep
Countless gold fields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

This is beautiful.

As a longtime Ducktales fan, I'm finally reading through 'The Life and Times with Scrooge McDuck' using this album as a backing score.

That scene where he leaves the letter behind...WOW.

Before Alan Young dies, I would love to see a 'Life and Times' mini-series. You can't get much more epic than matching Teddy Roosevelt in a fistfight.

Also, it's wonderful to see Don Rosa in this video, especially in his moments of genuine joy and pride.

To be rich is to seek

To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory

All the strangers on your path
Crossroads, the letters from home
The coolingembers of a Yuletide hearth
All the songs of wilderness
The truth in which you roamed
Now your lost Rosebud has brought you back home

Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of an open road
Hope, and many miles to go
Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory”

Tuomas, without you I would never even have touched a piano. Now I have released 4 albums and music is my life. I have a little bit of Nightwish deep down in every song of mine. You are a true inspiration, I hope to meet you one day. This song was magnificent <3

@phoenix21studios Johanna is the same. So appreciative and gracious in person. Her and Tuomas are such an adorable couple

Adam Youdell

I met him last year brotha. keep going for it

phoenix21studios

I used to think Tuomas was cocky and stuck up until i met him in person. He is a humble person. He could see my excitement and seemed honored to have fans.

Tuomas is not only surrounded by singing angels, he's married to one. What a beautiful song and what a beautiful voice.
