Once Upon A Nightmare

Epica (NLD)
On the way to sacred shores
And in the arms of the life that we adore
Moonlight shows a white design
That's been waiting for a chance to seize the soul once more

“Sweet lad, o come and join me, do!
Such pretty games I will play with you”

On a road
Changing course
Lightning strikes where we depart
An eerie voice as the night embraced the heart
Resonating from the life that is moving on
To the new window of the soul

“Will you, sweet lad, come along with me?
My daughters shall care for you tenderly”

Hear his mystic voice

“I love you, for your comeliness charms me, my boy!
And if you're not willing, my force I'll employ”

He feeds on stainless souls
We are struck in the night
Ancient power will strike

Feel the fire

Now run into his arms
Leave your shelter behind
We are going to fly
Higher than high
We will take on the sky

Feel my senses

United by the night
Now it's time to close the door
And open up like before
New window of the soul
The silence of the void
A father's life destroyed
Stuck in the night
Ancient power will strike
Feel the fire

Burn inside

Run into my arms
Leave your shelter behind
We're going to fly

See us fly
And hear our cry
We're out of sight

Higher than high we will
Take on the sky
Feel my senses
Out of my sight
But live on in my mind
New windows of our soul
