Amaranth Lyrics - Nightwish

Review The Song (221)

Baptised with a perfect name
The doubting one by heart
Alone without himself

War between him and the day
Need someone to blame
In the end, little he can do alone

You believe but what you see
You receive but what you give

Caress the one, the Never-Fading rain in your heart
- the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Apart from the wandering pack
In this brief flight of time
we reach For the ones who ever dare

You believe but what you see
You receive but what you give

Caress the one, the Never-Fading rain in your heart
- the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Caress the one, the Never-Fading rain in your heart
- the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Reachin', searchin' for something untouched
Hearing voices of the Never-Fading callin'

Caress the one, the Never-Fading rain in your heart
- the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Caress the one, the Never-Fading rain in your heart
- the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak...daybreak!

honestly, I don't care who sings, they both sound great. Everyone should just get over it. And I would like to point out that I am related to the bass player of Nightwish, Emppu Vuorinen. Suck on that :P

meaning of this song... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/16/11

"(eg the 'pain -the rain in your heart' may refer to Tarja's leaving, which I imagine was quite painful for all involved)."

Nope, this song tells about Tarja and what kind of human being writer saw her. It's kind obvious. Having amarant: in finnish this means that somenone isn't telling everything and is sneaky but behaves otherway...

The tears of snow-white sorrow:
I think this tells overdramatisicm, so called tears that you show to others and feel hurted. Its another question, who is hurt for real. Writer or the one who acts that way...

Of all of the songs from Nightwish, Amaranth is one of my favourites. I love both the lyrics and the sound. There are so many ways to interpret this song. I wonder if it could be about some 'never fading' personal trait, such as inner beauty/kindness, since physical beauty fades... If you stretch the meaning you could even imagine it to be some kind of commentary about music in general or nightwish enduring (eg the 'pain -the rain in your heart' may refer to Tarja's leaving, which I imagine was quite painful for all involved).

I thought the video, was quite nice as well. It was tragic and showed both the pain and disappointment in humanity, as the villagers tried to burn the angel, but there was still some hope as the angel turns to light

(I love Annette singing the songs that were written for her, and Tarja singing the songs that were written for her. I do NOT like when Annette tries to sing the old Nightwish songs, I would suspect that I would not like Tarja singing the new songs)

ok people.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/11

Yes, it's prefectly plausible to be sad that your favorite singer has been replaced. But that's life. You don't have to start fights about who's better. The simple fact is: Tarja is GONE. Deal with it. Y'all have way too much time on your hands.

Hmm | Reviewer: Uhh, me | 8/29/11

Honestly, I like Annette's voice better. That's my opinion. Some people think Tarja's voice is better, some don't, some don't think it's a huge deal. It's an opinion! Not a fact. Bands evolve, it's not fair to think a band should stay the same. They're going to want to explore new avenues. It can be disappointing but we should accept it.

Why in earth would you people say that we don't have life or that we are crybabies or bitches or whatever just because we miss nighwtish with tarja? Why is it that difficult to understand that even though she's no longer there we still miss her, still miss their live performance with tarja? We will complain until she sings for nightwish again, or until we die.
I personally loved dark passion play, i like anette's voice and nightwish new sound, it may sound pop-ish but it still sounds great for me. But what none new-nightwish/old-nightwish fan can deny is that end of an era's songs were the best live performance from nightwish, and then hearing anette singing that songs, i feel like she murdered them, i really don't know how can someone like anette's version of dark chest of wonders/wishmaster. I got over the fact that Tarja is no longer with nightiwish, i also got over the fact that nightwish has a new sound. I went to a Tarja's solo concert and she sang wishmaster, and i realised she's the only one meant to sing that song. My point is have you ever missed something? My life goes on with nightwish + anette and tarja in a solo career, but that doesn't mean i won't look back at the past and smile while looking end of an era dvd, and feel bad that i'll never be able to be in a performance like that.

i love Annette O's singing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/30/11

whoever says Annette gives the group too much of a "pop" sound is crazy...perhaps the group is just sounding more pop-ish now and the group like that Annette can provide that sound while still hitting beautiful high notes. nothing against Tarja, but her voice is not very great. good, yes, but hearing her version of "Phantom of the Opera" is awful. Regarding her original music with Nightwish, i would never tell someone how to sing their oen music, so if she liked what she performed with Nightwish and there are fans that like it too, then that is all that matters. i personally like Annette Olzen much better because her voice sounds sweeter AND she sounds very beautiful singing the soaring high notes--note pitches that most pop singers could only dream of singing. perhaps Christina Aguilera, and Lady Gaga, actually, but they don't sing that way, which still makes Annette's soaring range and delicate beauty in her voice very unique, even as it sounds more popular in sound (which is probably intentional-i understand & respect all the fans of 'old nightwish', but i can imagine that their newer sound has much more potential to expand their fan base. i actually can't even bear listening to the old songs- i don't expect anyone to care, i'm just putting it out there... And, perhaps Annette doesn't appreciate seeing the overly mean comments about her on these sites and will like reading that there are people that like her singing with Nightwish very much.

Amaranth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/10/11

Amaranth, is one of the best Nightwish songs I have heard in a long time, Anette is a really good singer and brings a new style to nightwish, though Tarja really made the band sound epic, but the change from that more symphonic sound towards a more metal style isn't that bad.... both singers are brilliant :D

Made me fall in love :) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/19/11

Amaranth was the first of Nightwish’s songs I ever heard. A friend told me to listen to it and I fell in love with it. That was actually, like, 2 or 3 weeks ago. :D By now, I’ve listened to every song on all of the albums, and I have to say that I really liked them. :) I didn’t listen to anything else during the last few days.
First, I listened to Dark Passion Play. I totally loved it. The songs are great. I liked everything – Anette’s voice, too. Then I listened to other albums, to the songs Tarja sings. At first, I actually didn’t like her voice. But then I slowly started to like it, too. So now let me tell you something: Nightwish sounded great with Tarja as their singer. They sound great with Anette as their singer. You just have to give her a chance! Don’t always compare her to Tarja, they have so completely different voices. They are both good, but in different ways. And my GOD, if you don’t like Anette, don’t listen to the newer songs!
And would you prefer it if Nightwish didn't exist anymore? Or might it be better that they are still there, still make music, and only have another singer? Honestly. Think about it. And stop complaining. It doesn't change anything.

what the hell... | Reviewer: kerrigan | 2/5/11

i never thought that those who compare the two singers are idiots, MORONS!!. You all idiots have no life! MOVE ON you god damned people! thats life, it changes. whats the deal if Anette replaced Tarja? as if it affects your damned life! If you idiots don't like Anette as replace then you idiots replace her!

*sigh* | Reviewer: Nix | 1/12/11

I can't believe I'm going to repeat what I've been saying for about 3 years now, but here goes. They just don't sound like Nightwish anymore. I mean, the new sound is great and all. But they lost that thing that set them apart from everyone else. Now they sound like many other bands out there. No one sounded like them back in the old days! Shame. Music's still kick ass... but there are a couple of songs on the lastest album that are just... blekh. Makes you want to shake Tuomas and go "WHAT HAPPENED?" Ww will never hear the likes of Gethesmane and Wishmaster again, and not just because Tarja left. That's just part of the tragedy. Yes, her voice gave the band something very special, but the music itself used to be breathtaking. It just lost that epic quality it had. I was just thinking today that Dark Passion Play kind of sounds like it was trying to match what they had with Oceanborn. Needless to say, it failed miserably. Oceanborn was a phenomenon that can't occur twice in the same century, I think.

Man, there are some really bored people out there. I read some earlier post on here and I actually got a headache. "Wave the banners of Metal!" Why's everyone so hysterical?

Who Cares? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/26/10

It's true--Anette brings a pop-singer's voice to a metal band, and it doesn't work. I'm not saying Anette's bad or Tarja's better or anything, she's just different. her voice and style of singing are very different from tarja's, and while I personally think the band could have chosen someone with a voice a little closer to Tarja's, Anette is a fine choice if they're going for a new sound. Though sometimes the sounds aren't always as new as they'd like to think, Anette does a fine job.

WTF is with you? | Reviewer: Patriotic Metalhead | 9/26/10

@ Soraya:

Dude, please, just do something to raise that, quote you, 'useless' IQ and common sense of yours. Go back to kindergarten, whatever, I don't care, just learn how to figure out the true context of messages such as mine.

I'm not saying you have no life because Annette is mediocre. I'm saying you have no life becasue you're taking a matter as small as Annette's level of vocalism and turning it into a matter so overexaggerated that it can double as a National Alert. Drop your meaningless, childish, haphazard and ungrounded criticism and ENJOY THE MUSIC. That is why Metal exists. Not for you to carry on like a two-year old street urchin because you find something as simple as a girl's voice distatsteful.

Good day, to you.

P.S. Next time, at least leave your e-mail address or send me one. That way we can avert all your useless spam clouding the site. Only pussies pick fights that are hard to counter, like you did.

never thought i'm dead! | Reviewer: Soraya | 9/22/10

what a useless lecture the one below!

the fact that Anette is a mediocre singer means that I have no life (am i typing from the other side?) ?? well, then I might have no life because she is waaaayyy mediocre

and I don't want Tarja back! neverr! her music rocks and i love the musicians she is playing with!

This is sickening... | Reviewer: Patriotic Metalhead | 9/19/10

Will you people PLEASE just get a ****ing life and move on? Bands CHANGE! Memebers LEAVE and get REPLACED! It's the way of life! The other members move on each time - why the hell can't you? Many of my favourite bands lost members - Slipknot lost Anders Colsefini and replaced him with Corey Taylor, Metallica lost Jason Newsted and replaced him with Robert Trujillo - and I don't see ANY of their fans complaining! Why the hell must you, over a simple change of vocalists? What the hell is wrong with you guys?

Metal is supposed to be a culture - a form of companionship where we can stand as brothers, sisters, friends and comrades before ear-bursting riffs, mind-blowing drum solos and gut-busting vocals. We are a family in Metal, members of a culture slowly growing to rival even the more reknown ones - yet you people want to sow discord amongst us and divide our comradeship for reasons as simple as "Anette's voice is different" and "The way she dances", WTF is wrong with you all?

Tarja, to me, was a beautiful person, in everything she did, be it her voice, her looks and even her performances. Anette, however, is equally beautiful to me because I LET GO. Tarja left Nightwish, true - she's pursuing a solo career, and life's GOOD for her. SHE MOVED ON. Why, in the name of our father, the great God, can't you?! LET GO. Stop being so damn biased and ADAPT, just like Slipknot and Metallica fans did when their music changed. Stop dwelling on past dreams and embrace the future given to you!

I extend a salute to all here who are willing to accept Anette. Truly, you are great people, and I thank you for keeping the banner of Metal held high with your words and actions. You be true Metalheads.
And as for everyone who keeps whining that "I want Tarja back!" and "I want the old Nightwish back!" - You people should pull your fingers outta your asses and GET. A F*CKING. LIFE. All you picky SOBs give Metal a very, VERY bad name, and its because of people like YOU that Metal is frowned upon by society. Grow up. Act your age and not the length of your penis, cuz your really carrying on like two-year-olds now...

As you see, I have added my e-mail. Come, then, attempt to argue any point you may have. I invite you. I DARE YOU. Show me if you earned what's between your legs now. Just be warned: I am armed to the teeth and ready to box. Come at me with intention to kill - otherwise you will fall before you have uttered your first word.

Now, I bid all my brothers and sisters in Metal farewell - Stay rockin', and keep the banners held high!
