"Astral Romance 2001" as written by Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen, Jukka Antero Nevalainen, Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen and Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen....
A nocturnal concerto
Candlelight whispers me where to go
Hymn of gathering stars as my guide
Whilst I wander on this path of the night

Embroidery of the stars
Undress my feelings for this earth
Send me your saliva to heal my scars
And let this nakedness be my birth

Macrocosm poured its powers on me
And the hopes of this world I now must leave
The night wish I sent you centuries ago
Has been heard by those who dwelled in a woe

The distance of our bridal bed
Await for me to be dead
Dust of the galaxies take my hand
Lead me to my beloved's land

Departed by the guillotine of death
I received a letter from the depth
The dream of my lover it carried inside

Caressed by the sharpest knife
I asked you to be my wife
Rays of the setting sun
Were my tears wept upon promises undone

Come to me
Make me believe
To you and your love again

Above the universe
Beneath the great eye
I shall desire you forevermore

    General CommentThe correct lyrics for the remake of Astral Romance from Over the Hills and Far Away are:

    A nocturnal concerto
    Candlelight whispers me where to go
    Hymn of gathering stars as my guide
    While I wander on this path of the night
    Embroidery of the stars
    Undress my feelings for this earth
    Send me your salva to heal my scars
    And let this nakedness me my birth
    Macrocosm poured its powers on me
    And the hopes of this world I now must leave
    The nightwish I sent you centuries ago
    Has been heard by those who dwelled in a woe
    The distance of our bridal bed
    Await for me to be dead
    Dust of the galaxies take my hand
    Lead me to my beloved's land

    This constant longing for your touch
    This bitter ocean of hatred and pain
    This loneliness I need to be who I am

    The oceans are as lone as I
    Somebody take away this gift of mine
    No charisma for the beast!
    But still I love you forevermore

    "Come to me
    Deliver me from you
    And from all the days of the Earth"

    I like the original better myself.

    General CommentArm's lyrics are right, except this part should be at the end:

    No last words to say
    Only memories remain
    A farewell then, my path goes forever on

    I myself like this version much better.

    General CommentI prefer the 2001 version too...the vocals are much much clearer and the annoying staccato is gone.

    General CommentI find myself liking this version for the better musical quality and Tony Kakko adds a lot to it with his voice, but I much prefer the original lyrics; it flows much better in the Angels Fall First rendition.

    General CommentTony Kakko really does make this song sound so much better than Tuomas did back in Angels Fall first. I love the story in this song and I can't really say which one I like better lyrically. However, just for listening, it has to be this one just because of the far superior vocals.

    General CommentI love the 2001-version; I didn't really even find the original enjoyable to listen, but musically this juts flows better. Very interesting lyrics too...very much the "those who aren't meant to be together" separated-by-life type of story.

    My Interpretation"This constant longing for your touch
    This bitter ocean of hatred and pain
    This loneliness I need to be who I am

    The oceans are as lone as I
    Somebody take away this gift of mine
    No charisma for the beast!
    But still I love you forevermore"

    That means so much to me I can't even begin to explain it, but I know that feeling...
