Nightwish

Sleeping Sun

Verse 1

The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

Verse 2

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my nights
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

Chorus

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Verse 3

Sorrow has a human heart
From my god it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

Verse 4

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

Chorus

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Chorus

I wish for this night-time
To last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you
