Meadows of Heaven by Nightwish

This song was written by the keyboardist of Nightwish: "Tuomas Holopainen". This song depicts Holopainen's childhood and the feeling that it'll never return. Listening to this song may give you the same feeling; feeling of missing of something that you can never get back again. With melodic vocals of Annette Olzon, talented orchestral work of Holopainen and the perfect blend of guitars and drums makes this song really heavenly.





Lyrics:



I close my eyes

The lantern dies

The scent of awakening
Wild honey and dew

Childhood games
Woods and lakes
Streams of silver
Toys of olden days

Meadows of heaven

The flowers of wonder
And the hidden treasures
In the meadow of life
My acre of Heaven
A five-year-old winter heart
In a place called home
Sailing the waves of past

Meadows of heaven

Rocking chair without a dreamer
A wooden swing without laughter?
Sandbox without toy soldiers
Yuletide without the Flight

Dreambound for life

Flowers wither, treasures stay hidden
Until I see the first star of fall

I fall asleep
And see it all:
Mother's care
And colour of the kites

Meadows of heaven

  1. After "End of the Era", Tarja Turnen was fired from the band. Both of these vocalists are god in different way. Although Annette can't replace Tarja, she will never disappoint you. :D
