Nightwish Sleeping Sun Lyrics

Last updated: 11/06/2012 10:40:31 AM

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 nights
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

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

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
With you....

my opinion is that tarja should not have been fired(for her voice).andanette doesn't know what the heck she talking about the old nightwish is better get your facts straight.when i hear tarja it justtouches me!anette makes me want to shut the computer! but i do see the reason she was let go.if it was up to tarja wouldstill be in bussines!when tarja not anette in the last 2 paragraphs when she says the line:I wish for this night-time to last for a just hits me. i wish tarja wasn't fired:( she was astupendous singer!!:)

RE: bekki bride's "Britannic's Lost Soul | Reviewer: SuperSapper | 10/16/12

Britannic wasn't torpedoed, though an attempt was made. The scenes with the torpedo striking the ship are from "Lusitania: Murder on the Atlantic".

It is unclear what actually damaged the Britannic. Possibly a mine or internal explosion.

the britannics lost soul | Reviewer: bekki bride | 5/2/12

if your a fan of this song then you will love the awesome video
on youtube called the sinking of the britannic which sank from
a goddamn german ships torpedo and tipped right over then
sank to the very bottom and it was a HOSPITAL ship there was
no reason to sink it like an enemy!

and the song sleeping sun by nightwish plays during the video
and its very nice and sad all at the same time.

goddamn that scene when the people in the lifeboat are getting
sucked back by the torpedo and then slice!

gets me every time damn why did the germans have to sink it?

why did all those people have to die all cause of a germans
stupid thought of oh this ship is a enemy we have to blast it!

it was an innocent hospital ship with the injured lying in beds
getting treated by the loving and caring nurses and doctors.

fuck the germans man fuck them goddamn they're nothing but
mean savages that deserve to be smashed with a baseball bat
and then killed by the inglorious basterds crew!

germans are nothing but greedy evil rats and thats all they'll
ever be.

and dont tell me different.

rest in peace brittanic you didnt deserve to be blasted down
like that.

Misheard Lyrics | Reviewer: ShadoKitti | 8/26/11

I was listening to this song with one of my friends and she had never heard it before. So when it said "Sorrow has a human heart", She was all like "What!? Did it just say Sauron has a human heart!?" and we burst out laughing, then I told her the real lyrics and she felt really stupid. :) Other than that, Sleeping Sun is a wonderful song and I really like it!!

remake fail | Reviewer: julie | 8/22/11

The new version of the song is terrible but I don't see how the new video is better than the bathtub video...yeah ugly dudes stabbing each other, thats what I really want to see listening to this song. >_<

Oh how I wish.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/11

This song is so beautiful. Nightwish writes some of the best love songs I've ever heard. The only bad thing about their romantic songs is that they all seem to have this bittersweet longing attached to them. "Ever Dream" is proof that you can head-bang and rock out...while crying and reaching for tissues.

Too many kids | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/28/11

Lol people are dumb as fuck on here first off if nightwish was only tuomos then who sings and plays the instruments? Don't get me wrong he writes damn good lyrics and is great at playing the keyboards but one person don't make a band. Lol too many little fucking kids ooo I know what toumos means and does I know why they fired Tarja ....fuck that non sense nobody's gonna really know except band members it was sad they have parted they have made some really good music together and with annette there gonna continue to make good music and I wish Tarja only the very best because she is really talented and I lover her solo work also. I hope continued success for both of them!

Nightwish at its best | Reviewer: Nix | 1/12/11

I just love this song. I swear I often tear up near the end when she hits those high notes. Amazing. The old version was magnificient. The new version ruined it. Butchered it in a most brutal fashion. Although the need for a new video was definitely justified. The older one had Tarja in a bathtub in the middle of some field. I literally almost choked on whatever I was eating when I saw it.

Gosh | Reviewer: Thia | 10/14/10

I seriously think that Nightwish is good either way, its like two different bands like others have been saying. They are both good!
Yeah Tarja and Tuomas BOTH are handling things weird. They need to just call eachother and have a heart to heart or something.

And yeah, WT kicks butt!!

Whatever | Reviewer: Anon | 9/2/10

Dudes, i rally think you're over reacting. I took ages to get really into Nightwish because i didn't like Tarja's voice. She's a great singer and all that, but i prefer Annette. I doesn't really matter, because the New and Old Nightwish are like two different bands, and they both have good and bad points.
And don't anyone DARE dis Tuomas. He writes the most beautiful music in the world, and it isn't his fault if Tarja was a bitch to him!!

everyone talking about tarja/annette | Reviewer: Curtis | 6/27/10

for starters, nightwish is TUOMAS considering he writes and produces the music. anyone who is mixing up the band members names pretty much show they know nothing about the band and need to just stay quiet until they know what they are talking about.
Tarja is not perfect, but many of the things written in the open letter were lies or stretched truth. For example: the sold out concert that tarja wanted to cancel (but showed up to and rocked out) was planned without her knowing, they did not ask her if she was available that day. They asked tarja's husband what some of her hobbies were (which are hanging out with friends, going to movies, yatta yatta) which was used as reasons she wouldn't play the show. which isnt true.
///the reason nightwish fired tarja is not clear. but for those of us whom enjoy her voice have moved onto her solo carrer (which i find is better than her carrer with nightwish)
Tuomas wrote songs about tarja, horrible songs, she held off but now her single "enough" has revealed a few held back emotions of her own.

DDUUDDEE!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/3/10

i agree with the annon below but you gotta admit, that nightwish would not be anywhere near as good if it wasnt for tarja. anyway she got kick because she was greed and wanted more mony for shows, and inturn stopped talkuing alltogether with Emppu... its what was best for Nightwish....

It's really annoying.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/10

And sickening that you cannot go anywhere having to do with Nightwish without seeing this shit about Tarja and Annette. Nightwish is Marco. And everything he's done is BRILLIANT. The singers are nothing more than guests. If you like the music, you like the music, otherwise shut the hell up.

WT and Nightwish | Reviewer: Krissia | 6/10/09

This song always brings me close to tears... It just does. The phantasmal vocals of Tarja are wonderful, I actually prefer the old version over the new.

And Within Temptation and Nightwish are both totally different bands, it's not fair to compare them for both are totally different.

I actually prefer WT to Nightwish, but that's just me. I like the older Nightwish over the new one, but Dark Passion Play was very good and very well done.

,.... | Reviewer: Stella | 4/20/09

No. Tarja did not die. tarja was brutally fired and I will say no more on that matter lest some Tuomas worshipper attempt to rip me to shreds. Thank God for her solo work.

Hey, personal opinioon, I came across WT before Nightwish. They kick ass.

Beautiful and amazing. Excellent.
