Nightwish - Amaranth Lyrics




Baptized with a perfect name
The doubting one by heart
Alone without himself

War between him and the day
Need someone to blame
In the end, little he can do alone

You believe but what you see?
You receive but what you give?

Caress the one, the never-fading
Rain in your heart - the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak

Apart from the wandering pack
In this brief flight of time we reach
For the ones, whoever dare

You believe but what you see?
You receive but what you give?

Caress the one, the never-fading
Rain in your heart - the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak [x2]

Reaching, searching for something untouched
Hearing voices of the never-fading calling
Calling [x2]

Caress the one, the never-fading
Rain in your heart - the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of the daybreak [x2]

Daybreak!

  4. JEFF THE KILLER

    *ENERO 2020👿*

  5. Martha Sandoval

    La voz de Annette es linda, de eso no hay duda, pero no siento que sea un match para el esilo de Nightwish. Pero pues es sólo mi opinión.

  6. Fairuz Abdullah

    1:19 when u put fan near your fucking face

  7. Xyonuizi Tzubbob

  19. Vlad Coolish

    Annette = the Best Nightwish singer (after Tarja of course)!

  20. What Sup

    Is this band still together??

    Maria Corone

    Almost, Anette Olzon (the female vocalist) left the band and is now replaced by Floor Jansen. The drummer isn't active anymore because of insomnia, but he still works with the band together. Their new drummer is Kai Hahto and they got Troy Donockley for playing pipes and flutes. So they changed a little bit but are still awsome🖤

    What Sup

    I C Thanks 😃👍👌

  21. Mielipidevanki

  22. Ally96

    This song and videoclip introduced me to Nightwish <3
    Like, I remember when this video aired on TV music channel (it was Viva in my country) many many years ago. I was a kid back then and this clip confused me, lol.
    But it's good to know that it was based on a painting as somebody mentioned in the comments.

  23. Madonassy R.

    Love it ...

  24. Christian Carter

    I like Annette’s voice. I like all three singers that nightwish has had.

    Maria Corone

    Me too, and I think it's so annoying when people always need to discuss who is "better".

    Pablo Raoul Cacciani

    Maria Corone you’re right, all of them are perfect

    Very_Icy

    Agreed! They all have their own strengths.

    (Although my favorite vocalist is of course Marco)

    Agustín Pugliese 1

    Me too, but still nobody tops Tarja

  25. Soldier1287

    as old as my channel damn.
    actually its almost a month older than it

  26. Elizabeth Taylor

  27. Prisia India

    Damn! Ten years ago I sang the wrong lyrics. Today I found out the real lyrics and I still don’t know the meaning. Is it good song or bad? Anyone?

  28. gary charles

    YOU JUST CANT STOP THIS COLOSSAL SONG.................NOT ME......NOT YOU.........NOT ANYONE.......... THIS IS BIGGER THAN US ALL JUST LOVE THIS ARCHIVE MATERIAL.............IT JUST GOES ON AND ON

  29. Juan Hinojosa

    Guys freaking awesome. Great intro and well kept through out the whole song. I love all of our music, but this one was a very powerful bounding beat. One of your best by far. Thank you for the entertainment.

  30. Jerzy Tyrola

    Eu odeio hip Hop prefiro rock

    Imar Santos

    Tem Hip Hop misturado com Rock, pesquise por Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, KoRn, Rage Against the Machine...

    Jéssica Simplício Reis

    @Imar Santos ata ok vlw

  33. Stephen Lofton

    Great song too bad the “story” makes zero sense.

    P Z

    The story behind is a painting called The Wounded Angel by Finnish painter Hugo Simberg. There's a Wikipedia article about it, but it's still complicated even for the Finns who have learned about it in the school. The painting is considered a piece of classic art.

  34. Dost

    Holy fuck it's been 12 and a half years since this came out.

  35. Sesle

    I found this from a video where there were good songs from like 60? Different countries, I saw that video a few years ago but i can't find that video anymore.. If you know the video please answer. But this song is also very good.

  36. Stefan Boehle

    2007... it came out 2007... my gosh i'm 24 now. Shortly before Tarja was leaving Nightwish, that was one of my biggest dreams to see them live. and now im 24.. time is running oh lord.. i can remember how often i heard "I wish i had an angel"...

    theXfilez

    Lol, I thought exactly the same thing when I saw when it was uploaded.. except I am 30 now.

    CDXLVI

    I thought the exact same. I'm turning 19 this friday and Nightwish was a huge part of my childhood/teens.

  37. ECLECTIC 361

    Gay....

  42. Camila FMendes

  43. Karl Gillmayet

    Schönes Lied. Doch Tarja übertrifft alle

  44. FinTer68

    Daaamm annette's voice is just perfect for this song, sadly it didnt work for tarjas songs as good and people hates her because of that

  49. Anonymously Boring

    Here because of an old wow music video I watched forever ago as a kid and this song was in it and just randomly popped in my head.

  50. The Amish Rectal Oculosis Research Center

    Am I the only one who thinks that this song sounds like one of those Google Translate videos?

    Thrice AsLong

    It absolutely does.

  51. bekah capps

    This is such a good song, I can't go a day without listening to it.

  52. Glen E11erink

    Not an Annette fan, but this is a tremendous track...

    Reasons why I can't show Nightwish to my friends #27: Anette's dancing

  61. Cherub Sasquatch

    If I was in that room with that blindfolded thing, and those old ppl broke in, I'd put all of them in a retirement home. Lol

  65. exp -tary

    I think Quality of videos is faded than 2009.

  66. Антон С

    There is no epic without Tarya. Boring and flat.

  67. 아트록스하면이김

  68. Janie Riddle

    FRAKKK Yea!!!

  69. Juan Murillo Hardware

    La gente es tonta o se hace. Dicen que Tarja es mucho más cantante solo por la impostura de voz. Uds. creen que Anette no puede hacer eso y cantar como Mezzo?

  70. chucky cromers

    First time i hear this song 10 years ago and its make me fall in love wit nightwish even that time all i know people say this singer is bitchest...but now 2019 December and im still love this song and the band no matter who's the singer :-*

  71. hippient

    the fact that they find inspiration for the video from the Simon Himberg s painting, called ”The Wounded Angel”, which it is a national representative painting for Finland, it is just... stunning

  72. Stine Horn

    Anett i remember meeting u and the rest of Nightwish at afterparty after a consert in Glasgow many many yrs ago… it was great. and what was even better… well when i was to go home i did get driven home in the Nightwish tour bus along with my friends… i totally love this album and i think it is a shame that anett aint singing in Nightwish anymore….

  73. Logan

    Everyone here I know loves real music just like me, music you can feel in your soul

  74. Peanut Brittle

    Oh my god, I am so late. Evanescence brought me here. I'm a fan already. I listened to the Phantom of the Opera cover but vocalist was different. They're both good.

    Michael Stark

    You have not yet experienced Floor Jansen, the current vocalist. Look up "Ghost Love Score Wacken 2013". Your mind will be blown 👍

  75. Supong Jamir9 Jamir9

    Listening after 13 years still one of my best

  76. Ill El-Zorro

    I love that chorus so much! Her singing/voice fits it perfectly.

  78. مجنون شاعر

    I don't know why this has always reminded me of His Dark Materials.

    mangalover0149

    No wonder I loved it..

  79. Employeesmustwash Hands

    12years ago damn I feel old

  80. METAL EXPOSER

    Damn i thought the chorus was Jesus know my struggle lol.

    Sam David

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I still hear her singing, "there is the one that hiding Eminem in a lamb".

    Telleryn

    @Sam David Damnit, cannot unhear

  81. Erico Patricio

    2019 Nightwish ever !

  82. CWM

    As a lover of both old, mid, and new NW, this still gives me chills. A gem of a song

  83. Tyler Palazzo

    At first, I honestly thought this was the song Nightwish by Amaranthe.

    I see now the error of my ways xD

  84. Siddharth

    Can anybody tell me why did they burn her!!! Poor Angel 😭

    METAL EXPOSER

    Because ANGELLSS DESERVE TO DIEEEE

    seanybernal

    METAL EXPOSER i cry when that happens.

  85. Siddharth

    2:57 that music!! It's just magical ♥️♥️♥️

  86. Randall Angel

    I almost turned the captions off until I realized this was finally my chance after 12 years to finally figure wtf she was saying in the chorus 😂🖤

  87. Bruno Drakʓʓʓ

    So the scandinavian devil
    is called Amaranth???

  88. Doormat00

    Fallen angels are not to be trusted.

  89. Gabriela Chz

    HORRIBLE!

  90. cer joe

    2019 anyone

  91. Lilli Frost

    I love that there are still comments saying Anette wasn’t a good fit for Nightwish. She was chosen by Nightwish for Nightwish. If she was good enough for Nightwish, why is she not good enough for fans YEARS AFTER SHE HAS LEFT THE BAND. I love all four vocalists for different reasons. They all are incredibly talented and incredibly different. Marco has his thing, and the ladies each have their own thing. I for one will continue to celebrate all three ladies. They all murder it in their own ways. :)

  92. Gustavo Balseiro

    En ésta epoca de Nightwish Anette estuvo TAN GENIAL!!!... amo a ésta mujer porque salió a la cancha a suplantar a Messi y sé la re banco!!!... una genia y los dos discos de Nightwish con ella: super discazos!!!

    Ángel Carcamo

    Cuanta razón tienes hermano.

  93. Alem Talic

    Nightiwish had awesome music, back at the day, and still holds ground today, but the videos however...

  94. Siddharth

    Anette is the best vocalist and this is the best song of Nightwish 🔥🔥♥️♥️
