Hyvyyden varjo peittää kyyneleen,
löytäneen luo vie askeleen.
Rauha saa, kehto uneen tuudittaa.
Toivo jää, tie rakkauteen.
Tie syvään vaupauteen.

[English translation:]

The shadow of goodness covers the tear,
Takes the step to the one found.
Peace may, rock the cradle to sleep.
Hope remains, a way to love.
A way to a deep freedom.

    General CommentI think this song is about suicide.All of its lyrics refer in a way to it

    "The shadow of goodness covers the tear,"
    The character thisnks he is dooing good,hence the Shadow of good
    "Peace may, rock the cradle to sleep."
    peace achived by him commiting suicide,and "the cradle rocking him to sleep" is him dying.
    "Hope remains, a way to love."

    Hope has remained that he will be loved some day in the other world."
    "A way to a deep freedom."
    He has freed his soul of his earthly cage and now is free.

    At least this is how i see it.

    General CommentWow. This song is so peaceful. And I love it when Tarja sings in Finnish, it's so soothing.

    General CommentI was really reluctant to listen to this album or Nightwish's new album,but I'm glad I listened to both because they both have something to offer. I just wish they both could have combined their efforts to make one amazing album instead of breaking up.

    In any case, I love this song, and I love how it flows into the next one, "Poison".
