"Pearls Of Light" as written by Robert Westerholt and Sharon J. Den Adel....
After the cold darkness,
In the heart of the forest
Where birds are singing,
For the newborn sun
In the womb of the leaves,
On the branches of the trees,
Lies the treasure of the morning,
The pearls of light
Carried away by the truculence of my world
I got lost in the search for enlightenment
The blue rain
Covered my roots
And I forgot where I came from

    My InterpretationI have sort of a different interpretation for this. When I first listened to this song, I imagined her walking from the cruel world into this beautiful forest. Over time she just sort of forgot about the outside world and became part of the forest. You see, when she said the rain covered her roots,I took it literally as if she had become a tree herself. I think that the forest represents her fantasies, and she gets so caught up in blocking out reality that she forgets she is from the 'real world'. Instead of literally becoming a tree, she becomes part of the fantasy world she has created in her mind.

    the meaning can be summed up in one word: morning

    the pearls of light refer to the morning dew by the way

    General CommentThis song is WAY more complex than just morning. The cold forest in night is where she's from. The newborn sun seems so serene, but then the music tenses up. She finds the evil in the garish sun and fighting to get what she wants. Then she wants to find the meaning of life but is lost in the search. The so-called purity covered her origins and she forgot she came from the cold dark night.

    General CommentI agree with dark ivory. Basically, her fascination with the light of the morning is a metaphor for her search for good/knowledge. However, she soon learns that light can also deceive and that she should have not forgotten her roots and her instincts.

    Nice song. :)

    General CommentThis song strangely reminds me of the elves city of Darnassus from World of Warcraft. Damn I miss that game
