"Lagoon" as written by Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen, Marko Tapani Hietala, Jukka Antero Nevalainen, Tero Kalle Sakari Kinnunen and Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen....
Imagine a perfect beach
Without a mermaid
Imagine a perfect hideaway
Without a time

Ocean Soul

Imagine a perfect Eden
Without a friend without a serpent

Ocean Soul
Lonely Soul

"Feeling lonely and content at the same time,
I believe,
Is a rare kind of happiness"

Ocean Soul
Lonely Soul

    General CommentThis song is about how you can imagine things to feel happy, even when there are no people around, not in real life nor in your fantasies. It's really beautiful.

    General Commenti think this song wants to say that happiness, this kind of happiness, is rare, because it doesnt have the elements someone needs to be happy..beautiful song indeed...

    General CommentI thought this song was more towards being happy with yourself surpassing your own fantasies and desires.
    Nonetheless, one of my favourite Nightwish songs.

    General CommentThere is so much truth in "imagine a perfect hideaway without a time"...

    Well, at the first look there are examples for that things need some specific components to be "perfect". But then there is the serpent, being whispert after "a friend", so it seems to be meant quite ironically. Or do you need a serpent in a perfect eden? Well, in the bible the serpent (the devil) is a false friend to Adam and Eva, making them eat the forbidden apple. But in this song to me it sounds as if Tuomas means any friend with serpent... maybe that there is something bad in every friendship.
    And then there is the "ocean soul", of which i think as an overflowing soul, full of thoughts and feelings, but content in itself... So i think this song is about that someone with an "ocean soul" does not need things other people need to feel happy.

    General CommentActually, I think that 'without a friend (without a serpent)' could possibly mean that friends are likely to betray or mislead you at one point in your friendship.
    Either way, Tarja's vocals in this are amazing.
