sleeping sun lyrics – nightwish

“sleeping sun”

the sun is sleeping quietly
once upon a century
wistful oceans calm and red
ardent caresses laid to rest

for my dreams i hold my life
for wishes i behold my night
the truth at the end of time
losing faith makes a crime

i wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
the darkness around me
sh*r*s of a solar sea
oh how i wish to go down with the sun
with you

sorrow has a human heart
from my god it will depart
i’d sail before a thousand moons
never finding where to go

two hundred twenty-two days of light
will be desired by a night
a moment for the poet’s play
until there’s nothing left to say

i wish for this night-time…

i wish for this night-time…
