"Ever Dream" as written by and Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen....
Ever felt away with me
Just once that all I need
Entwined in finding you one day
Ever felt away without me
My love, it lies so deep
Ever dream of me

Would you do it with me
Heal the scars and change the stars
Would you do it for me
Turn loose the heaven within

I'd take you away
Castaway on a lonely day
Bosom for a teary cheek
My song can but borrow your grace

Ever felt away

Come out, come out wherever you are
So lost in your sea
Give in, give in for my touch
For my taste for my lust

Ever felt away

Your beauty cascaded on me
In this white night fantasy

Ever felt away

    My InterpretationI think one of the best part of lyrics and poems is that they are up to the interpretation of
    the listener and that everyone may interpret them differently depending on past experiences.
    To me Ever Dream is a song about true love, about longing to find that special someone.
    You really believe that they exist but you do not know how to find them. Every now and then
    you stop and wonder what it will be like when you find them. They will be the kind of person
    who is so perfect that they'll make every bit of hell you have had to go through worth it and
    then some.
    It is dreaming about this person and wondering if maybe, they are dreaming about you too (even though
    you have never met).
    But this person is not just a passing thought, they are your lifeline. They are hope.

    General CommentI just realized it might be about Tarja. The line "My song can but borrow your grace" might refer to how Tuomas' music relates to Tarja's voice

    General Comment"Brilliant song. It's about confronting the person you love to find out if they feel or ever felt the same way about you."

    e.g. Tarja in the case of the author

    General CommentAn absolutely beautiful song about unrequited love. I don't think it's necessarily about sex, but it incorporates sexual elements because, let's face it, sexual attraction is a part of romance. This is perhaps my favorite song by Nightwish.

    General CommentListening to this song, the story of "Little Mermaid" comes to my mind. The music of "Ever Dream" sounds like thunderous ocean waves, very powerful, feverish and desperate at the same time, while the lyrics speak some words expressing longing, burning desire to someone unknown?

    Could this be about the mermaid's reverie, as she imagined the prince she once saved from that bad, stormy shipwreck, the "castaway of a lonely day", "so lost in your sea" (drowned unconsciously?)... Admiring his handsomeness "my song can but borrow your grace", "your beauty cascaded on me"... and finally saying a wish to unite with him "in this white night fantasy"...

    Ah, we always wanted to be dreamt by the one we love, don't we?

    General Commentmany people think this song was for Tarja.
    Mainly because of this dedication at the end of the song ("All I ever craved were the two dreams I shared with you.
    One I now have, will the other one ever dream remain.
    For yours I truly wish to be") and for what Tarja's husband said about Tuomas loving her.
    What do you think?

    General Commentperhaps one of my favorite songs ever; musically, lyrically, emotionally. I wouldn't doubt that it was for Tarja, mainly because of the amazing poem following the lyrics, but i think it can relate to anyone. it relates to me, the writer, and many people it seems. as stated by others, it is perhaps the best love song ever composed... i have one thing to say... thank you Tuomas.

    General CommentI think its obvious Toumas loved Tarja and tried to tell her through his lyrics, being that the best way he knew how, makes me very sad Tarja is gone. Anyway i think the song is about how he feels for Tarja.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful. This song seems to be about unrequited love, as mentioned above, so it's so strange to me that it affects me so, I can't really relate to the song, but the lyrics stir up a feeling deep down that brings tears to my eyes.

    The "End of an Era" version, where Tuomas starts to cry, you can tell he knew it'd be the last time those 2 perform that song together, and his reaction...not to jump on the cliche, but I think it would be about Tarja.
