I cut my heart, a gift to you
You leave salt in my wound
You are inside my wall of thoughts
But in yours I'm unknown

My desperation finds a book of heroes gone
Legends tell about a saviour wise and strong
I'm burning at the stake of love, the flames get tall
And in my anguish he's the last resort to call

And suddenly, my seer is on my side
Bringing love while forgetting his pride
In his eyes I see there'll be better times along my way

Nothing to fear
Nothing to fear

Why is it called Elysian Fields
When love builds only grief
All your agony and pain
Stays the same till you see

That destination shows you legends long extinct
Rumours are told about a hero kind and skilled
I'm burning at love's stake and that's the end I feel

But suddenly my seer is on my side
Bringing love while forgetting his pride
In his eyes I see there'll be better times along my way

As he longs to speak to me
I realise the reflection while listening
His words mend all my wounds, cause he is me
My seer lives inside of me

When suddenly, my seer is on my side
Bringing love while forgetting his pride
In his eyes I see there'll be better times along my way

Nothing to fear
My seer is near
There's nothing to fear
My seer is near
My seer is near

    General CommentI think she's fighting against her partner in a relationship and loses herself in legends of kind, wise heroes to escape the stress of it. She believes that the legends are what allows her to deal with the relationship, when in reality, the perfect hero that she's been searching for was inside her all along.

    So I suppose you could say that it's about finding the inner strength to deal with your problems.

    General CommentThe lyrics above are wrong to a big part. Those are the right lyrics:

    I cut my heart, a gift to you
    You leave salt in my wound
    You are inside my wall of thoughts
    But in yours I'm unknown

    My desperation finds a book of heroes gone
    Legends tell about a saviour wise and strong
    I'm burning at the stake of love, the flames get tall
    And in my anguish he's the last resort to call

    And suddenly, my seer is on my side
    Bringing love while forgetting his pride
    In his eyes I see there'll be better times along my way

    Nothing to fear
    Nothing to fear

    Why is it called Elysian Fields
    When love builds only grief
    All your agony and pain
    Stays the same till you see

    That destination shows you legends long extinct
    Rumours are told about a hero kind and skilled
    I'm burning at love's stake and that's the end I feel

    But suddenly my seer is on my side
    Bringing love while forgetting his pride
    In his eyes I see there'll be better times along my way

    As he longs to speak to me
    I realise the reflection while listening
    His words mend all my wounds, cause he is me
    My seer lives inside of me

    When suddenly, my seer is on my side
    Bringing love while forgetting his pride
    In his eyes I see there'll be better times along my way

    Nothing to fear
    My seer is near
    There's nothing to fear
    My seer is near
    My seer is near

    General CommentI think the lyrics for this one were one of the most poetic works Tarja did on My Winter Storm.

    I would like to understand better this sentence "Why is it called Elysian Fields when love builds only grief". What would be the metaphor behind that?

    And the metaphor behind all the legends and heroes theme on this song would be related to the "elysian fields" metaphor?

    I don't know much about Greek mythology, so I'm curious...
