Sleeping Sun
Nightwish Lyrics


The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my night
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime
I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Sorrow has a human heart
From my god it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

Two hundred twenty-two days of light
Will be desired by a night
A moment for the poet's play
Until there's nothing left to say

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

The sun is sleeping quietly

Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my night
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun

Sorrow has a human heart
From my god it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea

Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
