10.18.2014 | A year ago, Nightwish released “Storytime” (Live from Wacken Open Air 2013)

Now, I wanted to add a little personal note here ‘cause this video had such a great impact on me. I generally watch live videos once or twice and that’s it, but the day I saw this, I was so amazed by Floor’s performance that I just kept on watching it over and over again. A year later, I can say I still get the same feeling whenever I hear Floor singing this.


The sun is sleeping quietly, Once upon a century.
Wistful oceans calm and red, Ardent caresses laid to rest.

For my dreams I hold my life, For wishes I behold my night.
The truth at the end of time, Losing faith makes a crime.

I wish for this night-time to last for a lifetime.
The darkness around me, Shores of a solar sea.
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping, Weeping, With you.
