While Your Lips Are Still Red Lyrics - Nightwish



Review The Song (12)


Nightwish While Your Lips Are Still Red lyrics


Sweet little words made for silence
Not talk
Young heart for love
Not heartache
Dark hair for catching the wind
Not to veil the sight of a cold world

Kiss while your lips are still red
While he`s still silent rest
While bosom is still untouched
Unveiled on another hair
While the hand`s still without a tool
Drown into eyes while they`re still blind
Love while the night still hides the withering dawn

First day of love never comes back
A passionate hour`s never a wasted one
The violin, the poet`s hand,
Every thawing heart plays your theme with care

Kiss while your lips are still red
While he`s still silent
Rest while bosom is still untouched, unveiled
Hold another hand while the hand`s still without a tool
Drown into eyes while they`re still blind
Love while the night still hides the withering dawn X2

preserved virginity | Reviewer: roman nepal | 3/2/13

This song is a lovestory where virginity is still unattacked. The love has just started and the lovers havenot broken their limits. The song depicts the sexual psychology between two amateur lovers. Love between them is fresh as a gravepine, and the love is waiting to burst out. Amazing song. Poetic and powerful with a great melody. One of the best song by Nightwish.

Can not judge about the lyrics not being a language carrier, but may be not being able to dive too deeply helps me see the simple reality? ) As for me, it is very-very simple, beautiful and deep poem of the first touch of love, a "Sakura's touch", as Japanese would say. Don't really know why, but definitely, it touches some hidden parts of the soul, "Just lovely and sad to listen to, but gives you an unreasonably fuzzy warm feeling =)", +1 to this.

Hmm | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/12

Honestly, my take on this song is it's kinda perverted for Nightwish. Maybe I'm just perverted, but the words just seem, to me, to be about a woman losing her virginity. Just saying, I mean, everyone's got their take on the lyrics, I'm just sharing mine.

WOWed! | Reviewer: Big Bob | 10/22/11

I was never really a Nightwish fan, but a few days ago a friend gave me his full collection of them for a test run of sorts. After listening to a few famous songs I've known from before I gave shuffle a try. This was the first song it played! Just know this, I couldn't work (write, I'm a journalist) for the rest of the day! just listening to this marvel tens of times and generally entranced by most Nightwish's songs. Man, what was I doing till now!?
Oh and I think "While the hand`s still without a tool" means while he is still uninitiated to the world's crule realities such as weapons, crime and war. just a thought(^-^)

my take on this song | Reviewer: Milla | 6/1/11

Here is my take on this song:

Kiss while your lips are still red
(this talks about being alive and young)

While he`s still silent rest
(while he is under the spell of the kiss, you can take a few and then do it continue to kiss)

While bosom is still untouched
Unveiled on another hair
(these 2 lines go together “..bosom is till untouched unveiled…” I think it means that this means take this moment now before you loose him to another woman)

While the hand`s still without a tool
(I thing this talks about an armor of some sort)

Drown into eyes while they`re still blind
(love is blind, so drown in his love-filled eyes)

Love while the night still hides the withering dawn
(self explanatory)

There is another version of my take of this song, but way too morbid…

This is incredible | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/25/11

Holy crap I LOVE Marco's singing voice. This is my first day listening to this song, but probably my tenth time listening to it today. I'm completely hooked, probably because it reminds me of my girlfriend, and the music is just AMAZING

nightwish | Reviewer: Christine | 5/15/11

i understood the meaning of the song a pure and innocent love, the first love:
While bosom is still untouched
Unveiled on another hair
While the hand`s still without a tool
Drown into eyes while they`re still blind




Thank you, Nightwish! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/11

Beautiful song, very different as other ones of Nightwish, light, relaxing...
I wonder about the meaning of the text. Yeah, it's definitely about two persons who love each other but cannot be together and refers to the story of the movie Lelksa, but I think the lyrics own also another meaning.
When I heard this for the first time, I thought it talks about two homosexuals, because Marco, a male singer, singing of a he (While he's still silent).
That would also explain why they can't be together because their love's not tolerated.
On the other hand, the man (sang by Marco) could just be the storyteller, as many suppose, but maybe he tells his own story (as I thought first)?
Anyway it's a touching song with very touching lyrics containing deep meaning.
I wish there wold be more songs like this have something to tell

=) | Reviewer: X-EuphoricNightmares-X | 5/27/10

whoever Tuomas thought about while he wrote this song, he must have thought a lot of.. enough said..
Marco should sing more his voice is incredible, and it is amazing that he can sing gently as well as roaring.. this song touches my heart every time i hear it, and i just get lost in music... =D

BEAUTIFUL song | Reviewer: amorailuv | 5/10/10

I love this song more than I could say and it always makes me cry, which is really saying something. Tuomas outdoes himself and Marco is just amazing in this piece. Just lovely and sad to listen to, but gives you an unreasonably fuzzy warm feeling =)

Epic, gorgeous song... | Reviewer: Miso | 9/15/08

Marco puts so much emotion into his singing, and Tuomas's lyrics go so well with Marco's voice. It's like a strange chemistry that I'll never understand. The song itself displays the perfection, the pure amazement that Tuomas Holopainen's lyrics and Marco Hietala's voice bring.
Even if you aren't a Nightwish fan, this song will not disappoint you.

Wonderful, beautiful, majestic, enchanting... | Reviewer: Goodness Mia | 2/15/08

This song is so very beautiful. The singer puts so much passion in his song, that I feel a woeful happy right when he is about to say the first verse. Ah,this song also means so much to me, I can never quite explain what it is that reminds me of myself. Alas, listen carefully and you will get enthralled into his voice and lyrics.
