"Reach" as written by and Tuomas Lauri Johannes Holopainen....
Baptized with a perfect name
The doubting one by heart
Alone without himself

War between him and the day
Need someone to blame
In the end, little he can do alone

You believe but what you see
You receive but what you give

Reach for the hand held heart through life
For the dancer to arrive
Reach and catch me before I fall

Apart from the wandering pack
In this brief flight of time
We reach for the ones whoever dare

You believe but what you see
You receive but what you give

Reach for the hand held heart through life
For the dancer to arrive
Reach and catch me before I fall

Reach for a friend whoever cares
For someone whoever dares
Reach to catch me when I fall

Reaching for the doubting one by heart
Hearing voices calling
Catch the one who's falling

Reach for the hand held heart through life
For the dancer to arrive
Reach and catch me before I fall

Reach for a friend whoever cares
For someone whoever dares
Reach to catch me when I fall

    General CommentThis song was written in 2006 by Tuomas Holopainen and was sang by Marco Hietala, the bassist, main vocalist and songwriter for the band Tarot. In February 2007, Nightwish received a very talented NEW singer, by the name of Anette Ozlon, so the song was no longer going to appear on Nightwish's next album, Dark Passion Play. The song did however appear on the Amaranth CD single as well as on the Collector's Edition of Dark Passion Play. A reworking of the song was recorded with Anette by the name of "Amaranth" and put onto the general version of Dark Passion Play. This song is actually quite amazing, as is all of Nightwish's material. I especially like the way the hawk cries along with the scream of "REACH" throughout the song. I actually have five versions of Dark Passion Play; The regular version, The Collector's Edition (As to get this song) the "Orchestral" version that comes along with the Collector's Edition, the Japanese release (As to obtain the song "The Escapist") and the "Instrumental" version that comes with the Japanese release (the tracks are exactly the same as the "Orchestral" version) It's cool to look at in my collection because it is five CD's with the same basic image, though all look noticeably different. I was absolutely shocked that this song wasn't on here, especially when the even more obscure "The Escapist" had lyrics.
