Lyrics:

Toll no bell for me Father

But let this cup of suffering pass from me

Send me no shepherd to heal my world

But the Angel – the dream foretold

Prayed more than thrice for you to see

The wolf of loneliness in me

Not my own will but yours be done…

You wake up where’s the tomb?

Will Easter come, enter my room?

The Lord weeps with me

But my tears fall for you

Another beauty loved by a beast

Another tale of infinite dreams

Your eyes they were my paradise

Your smile made my sun rise

Forgive me for I don’t know what I gain

Alone in this garden of pain

Enchantment has but one truth

I weep to have what I fear to lose

You wake up where’s the tomb…

I knew you never before

I see you never more

But the love the pain the hope O beautiful one

Have made you mine ‘till all my years are done

Without you

The poetry within me is dead

«I chose to cover Gethsemane because it’s one of my most admired songs off Oceanborn, my first and favorite Nighwish album. Mordian recalls, Nighwish has had a big influence on me as a musician, and I wanted to breathe new life into this epic and beautiful track. I hope you enjoy it!».

About Ulf Backstrøm (7417 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
