Elvenpath

Nightwish

(In the sheltering shade of the forest Calling calming silence Accompanied only by the full moon The 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, Bear-king, Ruler of the forest Mielikki, Bluecloak, Healer of the ill and sad Open the gate and let me follow the uncarven path

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 moonwitch 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 dwarves The path goes forever on

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

(Long ago, 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)
