  • Angels Fall First

    Nightwish

    Genre:

    Symphonic Heavy
    1997

    An angelface smiles to me
    Under a headline of tragedy
    That smile used to give me warmth
    Farewell – no words to say
    Beside the cross on your grave
    And those forever burning candles

    Needed elsewhere
    To remind us of the shortness of our time
    Tears laid for them
    Tears of love, tears of fear
    Bury my dreams, dig up my sorrows
    Oh Lord why
    The angels fall first?

    Not relieved by thoughts of Shangri-La
    Nor enlightened by the lessons of Christ
    I’ll never understand the meaning of the right
    Ignorance lead me into the light

    Needed elsewhere

    Sing me a song
    Of your beauty
    Of your kingdom
    Let the melodies of your harps
    Caress those whom we still need

    Yesterday we shook hands
    My friend
    Today a moonbeam lightens my path
    My guardian
