Nightwish — Away lyrics

The days were brighter
Gardens more blooming
The nights had more hope
In their silence The wild was calling
Wishes were whispering
The time was there
But without a meaning

Away, away, away in time
Every dream's a journey away
Away, away to a home away from care
Everywhere's just a journey away

The days departed
Gardens deserted
This frail world
My only rest?

The wild calls no more
Wishes so hollow
The Barefoot Boy
Weeping in an empty night

Away, away, away in time
Every dream's a journey away
Away, away to a home away from care
Everywhere's just a journey away

Cherish the moment
Tower the skies
Don't let the dreamer
Fade to grey like grass

No falling for life
A gain for every loss
Time gathered me
But kept me flying

Away, away, away in time
Every dream's a journey away

Away, away, away in time
Every dream's a journey away
Away, away to a home away from care
Everywhere's just a journey away

"For this gift of dream I must pay the price
With the loss of life's pleasures"
