"Dark Wings" as written by Robert Westerholt, Sharon J. Den Adel, Oscar C. Holleman and Rene J. Merkelbach....
Why was I one of the chosen ones
Until the fight I could not see
The magic and the strength of my power
It was beyond my wildest dreams

Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around
One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down

Don't you die on me
You haven't made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe
Don't you die on me
You haven't made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe

Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around
One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down

(Ah...)

As they took your soul away
The night turned into the day
Blinded by your rays of life
Gave us the strength we needed

Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around
One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down
Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around
One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down

    General CommentI love their music, it as a dark, lyrical, apocalyptic feel to it. I have no clue what this means though :)

    General Commentlooks like a sort of power metal lyric, so about warriors. looks like to be about a warrior fighting against the dark forces and one of her fellow warriors gets mortally wounded.

    so its about battle against evil and the hardship it brings with it.

    General CommentReminds me of Rhapsody's kind of storyline...

    I love how people from Asia/Netherlands can't pronounce 'th'... ha ha... At first I thought she was singing "One by one, days are falling, every time, day tries to strike us down..." It sounded like vampires for a minute...

    But I love this song no matter what.

    General CommentI was actually really dissapointed with this album, I was looking for a band like Nightwish, but this song was the only really good song on it and it is almost too "pop" for me. However, I love the words, very light against dark. Very vivid mind pictures when I listen to this song.

    General CommentThings are happening to the people and things she loves, and there's nothing she can do about it whether they be because of chance or sickness or other circumstances that she can't control. She feels guilty that she is safe and healthy while everyone around her is suffering.

    The "As they took your soul away..." part... The memories of those who have already perished give the others hope, so they eventually conquered whatever agressor is in their midst.
