"Feel For You" as written by and M. Hietala T. Holopainen....
You were my first love
The earth moving under me
Bedroom scent, beauty ardent
Distant shiver, heaven sent

I'm the snow on your lips
The freezing taste, the silvery sip
I'm the breath on your hair
The endless nightmare, devil's lair

Only so many times
I can say I long for you
The lily among the thorns
The prey among the wolves

Someday, I will feed a snake
Drink her venom, stay awake
With time all pain will fade
Through your memory I will wade

Barely cold in her grave
Barely warm in my bed
Settling for a draw tonight
Puppet girl, your strings are mine

This one is for you for you
Only for you
Just give in to it never think again
I feel for you

    General Commentthis song is again for a woman's point of view, though we know Tuo wrote it.

    Yes, she loves him desperately. really badly. He was her first "real", "strong" love. He broke up with her.
    And she tries to tell him and the world that she doesn't want him any more, that she doesn't need him. But he knows very well that he still has the control over her.

    General CommentI dunno... I think she's like deeply in love with the guy, but he doesn't love her, and in spite of her feelings he "uses" her the way he wants ("puppet girl your strings are mine"), he's so mean!

    Since I'm chilean I don't really understand the line "I feel for you". It's like "I'm sorry for you" or most like "I love you (have feelings for you)?"

    saludos a los latinos :D

    General CommentAll rfight... Call me crazy (and you probably will), but I have quite a different idea for this song...

    I thik that yes, she was in love with him, but then he killed her and went all... Necrophiliac.

    "Barely cold in her grave
    Barely warm in my bed"

    "Puppet girl, your strings are mine"

    "Just give in to it never think again
    I feel for you"

    While that last line usually does mean something like 'I feel sorry for you,' I'm thinking that in this case, he actually means 'You don't have to feel anything; I'll do it for you.'

    I think he's a little nuts (Not Tuomas, just in the song).

    General CommentScarily, I can see the necrophiliac thing.

    However, I always thought it was more he used her and she genuinely loved him. Perhaps he wanted to drive her to suicide, perhaps not: either way, she killed herself because of him. Thus, he had the ultimate control over her, but as he can no longer physically control her, it's a 'draw'.

    The last part can be seen from both sides: she is telling him that what she is doing is completely for him and that he doesn't need to worry about her because she loves him. Meanwhile he is lying to her, saying that everything is for her while he feels no love for her.

    The final two lines can be taken both ways depending on the emphasis. "Just give in to it, never think again: I feel for you," comes from her side, telling him to give into what they have because she loves him. "Just give in to it. Never think again I feel for you," comes from his side, telling her to give into death/his manipulation, but that she should never have believed that he loved her.

    Whichever is true (the necrophiliac version or this) Tuomas is just a little bit disturbed. Still an awesome song, though....

    General CommentJust a side note to the necro thing - don't forget that this song comes after Slaying the Dreamer, which has definite Vamp overtones - listen to it again with that image in mind.

    General CommentAck this is my one of my favourite Nightwish songs, but i'd never thought of it from Ravenwolf's p.o.v before. It makes so much sense.
