Venturing into the darkness

Strangely enough, I have been exploring the music of Nightwish. Nightwish is a Finnish metal goth band. Somehow, I enjoy the transitions in the compositions. To me, some of the pieces sound like a marriage of opera arias and heavy metal--and I am not a fan of heavy metal.

Anyhow, it would seem that I never cease to surprise myself. I thought that I would always just be a Baroque girl. I amaze my own self. What next? Tomorrow, will I don a black dress, black corset, my long black wig, and dark makeup?

Anyhow, I happen to like this piece. It strikes a chord with me:

Sleeping Sun

The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my night
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

I wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
With you

Sorrow has a human heart
From my god it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

Two hundred twenty-two days of light
Will be desired by a night
A moment for the poet's play
Until there's nothing left to say

I wish for this night-time...

I wish for this night-time...
