Nightwish – How’s The Heart? lyrics

How’s The Heart? By Nightwish

We see a mother with no child
We meet a stranger poor, exiled
How’s the heart while it still beats?
Asks a no-one
Another John Doe

Sorrow hides well in your shell
A fellow man with hurt to spare
Dear one,
Here I am to share the fear
An act of kindness
Without an amen

How’s the heart
Underneath the silence?
How’s the one
Drowning in the mire?
Let us sound a human paean
Come in, the fire’s warm
Burn the rope and dance some more

We met where the cliff greets the sea
Shared a story, took the leap
Rose up rooted, hid a note
You know where
You’ve been there

Now there’s one who came from me
A child of light, another tale
Dear one,
Night will come but not to stay
Why?
The answer’s in the

Fair winds my love
Fly towards the calm
Fly utterly lost
Towards a beating heart

How is that heart
Underneath the silence?
How is the one
Drowning in the mire?
Let us sound a human paean
Come on in, the fire’s warm
Dull the blade and dance some more
