  • Elvenpath

    Nightwish

    Genre:

    Symphonic Heavy
    1997

    The sheltering shade of the forest
    Calling come in silence
    Accompanied only by the full moon
    Howling of a night wolf
    And the path under my bare feet
    The elvenpath

    Hearing music from the deepest forest
    Songs as a seduction of sirens
    The elf-folk is calling me

    Tapio, Bearking, Ruler of the forest
    Mielikki, Bluecloak, Healer of the ill and sad
    Open the gate and let me follow the uncarven path

    [Chorus:]
    The way to the lands
    Where as a hero I stand
    The path where Beauty met the Beast
    Elvenpath
    It’s the honesty of these worlds
    Ruled by magic and mighty swords
    That makes my soul long for the past
    Elvenpath

    The moon witch took me to a ride on a broomstick
    Introduced me to her old friend Home Gnome
    Told me to keep the sauna warm for him

    At the grove I met the rest—the folk of my fantasies
    Bilbo, Sparhawk, goblins and pixies,
    Snowman, Willow, trolls and the seven dwarfs
    The path goes forever on

    [Repeat chorus]

    Long ago,
    In the early years of the second age,
    The great elven-smiths forged the Rings of Power.

    As I return to my room
    And as sleep takes me by my hand
    Madrigals from the woods
    Carry me to neverland
    In this spellbound night
    The world’s an elvish sight
    In this spellbound night
    The world’s an elvish sight

    But then the dark lord learned the craft of ring-making,
    And made the Master Ring.

    Ah ah ah
