"Wanderlust" as written by and Jukka Antero Nevalainen Erno Matti Juhani Vuorinen....
I want to see where the sirens sing
Hear how the wolves howl
Sail the dead calm waters of the pacific

Dance in the fields of coral
Be blinded by the white
Discover the deepest jungle

I want to find the secret path
A bird delivered into my heart, so

It's not the end
Not the kingdom come
It is the journey that matters, the distant wanderer
Call of the wild
In me forever and ever and ever forever

I want to love by the blue lagoon
Kiss under the waning moon
Straying, claiming my place in this mortal coil

Riding the dolphins
Asking the mountains
Dreaming Alaska
The earth can have but earth

I want to find

It's not the end

Look into my eyes and see the wanderer
See the mirrors of a wolf behold the pathfinder

    General CommentTuomas on this song:
    "It's a cliché that life's a one big journey. But that's the way it is. And there's so much to discover and experience on this planet. I couldn't bear the thought that I would have to live my life with the biggest experience being a one-week trip to Canary Islands after working in an office for one year straight. Routine kills everything. I wish people would find the "wanderer within"."

    General CommentThe title of the song implies its meaning... the wanderlust, the desire to see it all, to feel it all, to travel far and wide and search endlessly for those things that make life worthwhile(if there are any)...

    General CommentI think wandering need not be constrained to physical things... Could be ideas, feelings, whatever...

    ...Not everyone can afford to be a physical wandererer... And that need not have anything to do with money!

    General CommentThis song is about the Kender race in the Dragonlance- saga, since they have the wanderlust in their genes and they want adventures and they want too see everything.

    General CommentIts not about the Kender....at least not directly. I mean to say its not a song written about 4 foot tall theives walking around ceaselessly. Its about the concept of wanderlust (which admittedly is tied to Kender from Dragonlance). As already said here its about seeing the world. Note the words pacific, earth, alaska....not places you find kender generally.

    General CommentBinni basicly summed it up with Toumas's quote. I think its about lifes journey, what you see with your eyes and what you feel with your heart.

    General CommentI believe its most likely about what Tuomas want's, atleast at Nightwishes website he says that he would like to visit Alaska. Also he has escapism (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…) which would point to the wandering in your imagination.
