"Bless the Child (edit)"

BLESS THE CHILD (EDIT) Lyrics by Nightwish
Where have all the feelings gone?
Why has all the laughter ceased?
Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.
How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?
Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.
Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

I've never felt so alone in my life.
As I drank from a cup which was counting my time.
There's a poison drop in this cup of man,
To drink it is to follow the left hand path.
Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.
Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

"Where have all the feelings gone?
"Why is it the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you?
"Now unblessed, homesick in time
"soon to be freed from care, from human pain."
"My tale is the most bitter truth:
"Time pays us with but earth & dust
"And a dark, silent grave."
"Remember my child, without innocence
"The cross is only iron,
"Hope is only an illusion,
"And Ocean Soul's nothing but a name."

"The Child bless thee and keep thee forever."
