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

People felt for Tarja and were harsh towards Tuomas and the rest of the band because of the letter.

But the most fans don't know what led them to writing that letter. Just try to imagine what they felt at that time in the band.

There was a tension between Tarja and the rest of the band. Together with her husband she was alienating herself from the band more and more. Nightwish was dying because she was already planning on going solo and leaving Nightwish. She already said so before that maybe she wanted to do 1 album and just go solo.

This left the rest of the band feeling trapped and irritations grew. They wanted to take back control of their own band and that meant firing Tarja.

They did it by open letter to be as transparent as possible to the fans, who turned on mainly Tuomas.

But fact remains that if they didn't take back control, the band would have died out and Nightwish would just be an old memory.

(The story about Tuomas trying to get with Tarja and she turning him down being the reason for firing her is really a big bunch of bullshit from "old fans" that were too butthurt that they couldn't see what was really going on between them.)

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”
