Back to Bless The Child (Edit) lyrics

Nightwish - Bless the Child (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 of 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 us but with earth and dust and a dark, silent grave
Remember my child, without innocence the cross is only iron
Hope is only an illusion, and Ocean Soul's nothing but a name
The Child bless thee and keep thee forever
