"Black Diamond" as written by Timo Kotipelto and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Again I see you standing there watching me
Your gaze, those eyes are tantalizing openly
Inviting me to get close to you
Can't help myself
There's fascination in the air
I try to fight this strong sensation
But there's no chance to escape from this temptation

Feels like I've known you before
Repeating phrases
But I yearn for something more
I know I can't stay by your side forever
But I know I won't forget your beauty
My black diamond

    General Commentthe instrumental peices are sooo beautiful and the intro is pretty epic!!
    the meaning could be sad but how it is written is so matter-of-factly 'I know I can't stay by your side forever, but I know I won't forget your beauty, my Black Diamond' he knows it won't last forever but he cannot avoid it nonetheless

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who is falling in love with a prostitute who see him frequently. No offense. It's my opinion.

    Song MeaningI've read in a interview with Tolkki that he wrote this song when his dog died. So the song is about his dog... Open for many interpretations though. Great song anyways!:)
