Nightwish - Last Ride Of The Day Lyrics




We live in every moment but this one
Why don't we recognise the faces loving us so

What's God if not the spark that started life
Smile of a stranger
Sweet music, starry skies
Wonder, mystery, wherever my road goes
Early wake-ups in a moving home
scent of fresh-mown grass in the morning sun
Open theme park gates waiting for

Riding the day, every day into sunset
Finding the way back home

Once upon a night we'll wake to the carnival of life
the beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
It's hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
This moment the dawn of humanity
The last ride of the day

Wake up, dead boy
Enter adventureland
Tricksters, magicians will show you all that's real
Careless jugglers, snake charmers by your trail
Magic of a moment
Abracadabra

  14. Throat Stabber

    Best Nightwish Konzert ever!!!

  15. Youssarian Whisker

    im 46 yr old, i watched this video maybe 50 times, and again and again i feel a goosepimple with tears in my eyes.. this song ( and much more ) are so unbelievable

    Mike P

    This shit is epic man

  16. Milena Pantic

    I would go in a battle with her.

  17. ibenja36

    Naast alle geweldige muziek en zang geniet ik ontzettend van het plezier en de positieve instelling over het leven van alle bandleden.

  18. Hunter Craig

    One of those bands I want to see way more than Metallica and Slayer and I love Metallica and Slayer. Nightwish makes me want to fight a battle and sway slowly at the same time

  19. Michael Brown

    I'm a fan this kicks ass

  20. Никадим Цацкин

    Всем общий привет 👋🏻, скиньте ссылку на эту песню, в хорошем качестве

  21. John Hume

    definitely gonna be playing from my hearse on the way to the cemetery,

  22. Frostup

    Dude.. WE Are so Lucky that Floor is Metalhead!

  23. Shocked Cat

    wrong tempo

  24. A guy

    He could get me to do anything if he yelled “RIDE HARD” before.

    Drink this entire bottle of whiskey

    I don’t know...

    RIDE HARD!

    Ok

  25. Wimpie Burtles

    What happened to them?? Great music!!!

    Eneri Giilaan

    "Nothing" happened. They have had a pre-planned creative break. New album with the associated World tour will be out early next year (2020).

  26. Rubicón 6

    Este concierto esta mejor que el video oficial ❤

    Gabriel Cabrera

    El mejor concierto lejos , Flor impecable no cabe duda , lo mejor que le pudo pasar a NW

  27. Tata Chali

    empuuu line <3

  28. Oeds De Jong

    Geweldig

  29. B. Bennet

    Only 383 k views? The world is wrong !

  30. MissDragonfly800

    I’m not ready for the last ride of the day!!!

  31. alberta santagà

    Am I the only one who noticed floor seems to hate the word abracadabra??? She never said it...

  32. Rush 6891

    El mejor recital de toda la carrera de Nightwish. Y uno de los mas grandes que pudieron haberse hecho en a historia de la musica

  33. G Melford

    A Berserker and a Valkyrie singing a monstrously epic song together and a cold beer in my hand as I watch this.
    I must be in Valhalla! 🤘🏻🤘🏻

    Youssarian Whisker

    It could not have been more appropriate. Skål

    Pipe

    that crowd is full of einherjars

  34. James Hogan

    My favourite live performance of recent NW history :)

  35. Roy Smothers

    end of a nearly 2 hour show, and Floor is skipping across the stage! (in heels, no less)

  36. Darkness Hell

  37. Claudio Rabaglino

    This band will never fail to amaze me.

  38. B Luz

    I miss Jukka.

  39. 花京院澍雨

    Wonderful!!

  40. Jet From Holland

    Marco!!

  41. Rafael Faria

    O dia mais incrível da minha vida!

  42. Alan Ayers

    The end of an absolutely legendary concert. Damn, I wish I'd been there!

  43. Ben Jr

    Even the bus driver's name also mentioned in the lagends 😃

  44. 高峰

    托马斯牛逼

  45. Villainous ChrisK

    love Floor because she is so genuine and humble and grateful that she gets to do what she loves and is amazing. kudos to Nightwish for grabbing her up when they did. my only question: why did they wait 2 Months After this night to offer the job?!?

    Rick Karsters

    They offer her the job in juni 2013 😉

    Donald Campbell

    She wasn't touring or singing because she was burned out. They waited until the time was right. I think they knew from day one that she was the chosen one for the band.

  46. Bernadetta von Varley

    Last ride of the day, last main stage song of Wacken 2013

  47. Michael Timms

    Floor has a fantastic combination of Anette and Tarja's vocal styles. Awesome song from an amazing special band.

  48. Chepe Alvarez

    nice music. I love how this beautiful woman sings.

  49. Faris Irfan

    2:26 Alan Walker?

  50. Mapz Hmar Zate

    Can you imagine how effing epic it would sound if Tarja sung this.?? Just by listening to the track you could possibly think that the world is going to an end.

    Mapz Hmar Zate

    @Sarke Talovic seems like even her lighter voice is actually thicker than your brain.

    Sarke Talovic

    @Mapz Hmar Zate I feel sorry for Tarja when I see what her fans are like. You are embarassing.

    Zarbatta

    Why would it be epic??? It would be the same boring opera style lalala as everytime. She is only a one trick pony!

    Mapz Hmar Zate

    @Zarbatta are you that dumb enough not to think people have different taste and not everything you like is suppose to be the way others like? I'm way more into those opera stuff so it would obviously epic to me. You could just leave my comment alone if you don't like her. You don't need to underestimated her talent as if she's no good at all just because you think it's boring.

    Mapz Hmar Zate

    @Sarke Talovic It's ok. You don't need to feel sorry for her. With having fans like us, she's doing really fine actually. :)

    I love when their taking the picture both Floor and Tuomas look back and motion to the crowd like, "come on, you're in this picture too."

  54. One CelleD

    THAT IS FUCKING EPIC !!!!

  55. Leonardo Ferreira

    5:50 - When you realize that you was accept for the fans and you did a great job

    KayGee Himself

    Accepted? This was the founding of some kind of religion, man :-)

  56. A Z

    Why haven't I ever heard of them before????

  57. Fredzor96

  60. Lemoni Menisza

    I still missed Tarja Turunnen and Anette Olzon. Though I meant no disrespect to Floor Jansen.

    Tio Nino

    Who is anete?

    Aurinkohirvi

    Anette is their second vocalist. She recorded "Dark Passion Play" and "Imaginaerum" albums. This song is also in Imaginaerum.

    Aurinkohirvi

    I'm so in Floor wagon, love her to pieces! I have some songs from the other two, that stay my favorites. Having Floor doesn't diminish the earlier songs for me, and if Floor makes a version of them, I'm happy about it. Because I certainly have more than just one version of songs I love.
    For example, I'm a big fan of MoonSun band, which has done several Nightwish covers. VERY COOL!

  61. Jose DOMINGO Rodriguez

    Esta cantante es muy bonita y muy juapa y canta muy bien

    Jose Antonio Rodriguez Jaimes

  64. jimmyboy131

    Dang, she yelled that as if she was pep-talking the Rohirrim as they were about to charge the hordes of Mordor before the gates.

    J Z

    What a perfect description for this.

    alberta santagà

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 ROFL!!!

  65. Beri Svensun

    I just flat out love that woman. Gawd she's so fucking wonderful. Tuomas deserves so much credit for preserving against all the odds he faced and for his genius in asking Floor to join the group.

  66. Juan cdz

    Why didn't she say "Abracadabra"? 😭

    great video and Floor is amazing!!!!!

  70. SheBangsPrP

    Floor: Wacken Open Air! Let us thank you. With you we've immortalized this special evening and I think that DVD is gonna kick ass! With an audience like you guys, what more could we wish for? Thank you so much.

    Marco: Yeah, baby, I agree!

    Floor: But even to the most magical nights like these, to the most wonderful stories, even to fairy tales, everything comes to an end. But if you've had a beautiful story, let's just add one more good memory to this evening and make a final ride together, how is that?! Let's get ready for the last ride. THE LAST RIDE OF THE DAAAAAAY!!!

    Marco: OH YEAH, RIDE HARD!!!

    Roy Smothers

    the DVD is awesome....i know, because I have it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. Felipe Reis

    We live in every moment but this one
    Why don’t we recognize the faces loving us so
    What’s God if not the spark that started life
    Smile of a stranger
    Sweet music, starry skies
    Wonder, mystery, wherever my road goes
    Early wake-ups in a moving home
    Scent of fresh-mown grass in the morning sun
    Open theme park gates waiting for
    Riding the day, every day into sunset
    Finding the way back home
    Once upon a night we’ll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It’s hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day
    Last ride of the day
    Wake up, dead Boy
    Enter adventureland
    Tricksters, magicians will show you all that’s real
    Careless jugglers, snakecharmers by your trail
    Magic of a moment
    Abracadabra
    Riding the day, every day into sunset
    Finding the way back home
    Once upon a night we’ll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It’s hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day
    Once upon a night we’ll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It’s hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day
    Once upon a night we’ll wake to the carnival of life
    The beauty of this ride ahead such an incredible high
    It’s hard to light a candle, easy to curse the dark instead
    This moment the dawn of humanity
    Last ride of the day

    Sorcery King

    Mhm htat abracadabra isnt sung in the life performances of the song tho

    Jartsaaaaaa

    I always wonder why Floor skips the Abracadabra part, its not that big of a deal but it really makes me wonder

    Sorcery King

    @Jartsaaaaaa
    because she would have to sing "magic of a moment, abracadabra - riding the day every day into sunset finding the way back home" in one breath which isnt possible and the abracadabra -riding are synchronic so she cant sing both at once, hence they sacrificed singing the abracadabre live.

  89. Teresio Garavaglia

    Canzone travolgente in tutti i sensi ti prende in maniera selvaggia e pazzesca

  90. Martin Švehla

    9:05 Never seen Thomas as happy as he leaving stage with Floor.

    Lastinline

    You would be happy too if you were leaving with Floor!

    Aurinkohirvi

    Then again it was happy-happy with the previous singers too. Until they started to have opinions about world tours. Namely opinions that they wouldn't go to that gig. Tarja: "too many gigs too often, my health and voice can't handle this." Fired. Anette: "I have my kid with me and I would rather skip this gig and I'm pregnant again, could we not do the rest of the tour?" Fired.

    Kevin Burgess

    ​@Aurinkohirvi Good point, I get it and agree. But even if it ends badly with Floor, she's an almost unimaginably effective vehicle for Tuomas' immense vision. They all must be ecstatic about that, and will be forever grateful that they all found their way to each other. IMO

    Rian Koning

    Kevin Burgess About 3 months ago she did an interview with NPO Radio 2. And in that interview she said “they’ll never get rid of me even if they tried”

  91. Teresio Garavaglia

    Gruppo 🇫🇮 Finlandese magico e fantastico 🤩

  92. Manoj Dewri

    Tarja was the reason I started liking Nightwish, but now I'm loving it even more because of Floor.

    SheBangsPrP

    I knew Nightwish at the time of Tarja but did not like her voice making opera in all the songs. When Anette entered, it got worse for me. I turned my back to this band, but when I entered Floor I thought, "Who is this? What a wonderful voice! How much versatility! How much power! How much energy! How beautiful!" Okay, I just listen to Nightwish now ♥

    Iuri Pulga

    Yes man. You are right. She's gorgeous and loves what she does...

    Renato Campos

    I also think the best performance

    XxJohnLennon1940xX

    yeah baby, i agree

    B Luz

    She has an energy and glow that just makes you want to rock and rock.

  93. Desmond Fabre

    How can I click million of times on the like button?????!!!!!

  94. Neto Acevedo

    Chinguetas

  95. Célio Azevedo

    She sings a lot and is very hot. I love you, Floor.

  96. karl archuleta

    is it me or is the tempo different? Like it is much slower.

    Galin Stoichev

    not much but it is slower

    Tio Nino

    karl archuleta are you running Windows vista?
