Bye Bye Beautiful Lyrics

Finally the hills are without eyes
They are tired of painting a dead man's face red
With their own blood

They used to love having so much to lose
Blink your eyes just once and see everything in ruins

Did you ever hear what I told you?
Did you...

    The meaning of this song can be summed up in a few words:


    More specifically, Tarja, as the lead vocalist, was an integral part of the band. At first glance, the words seem bitter, but if you know who the song was written for it becomes a song of bittersweet farewell. Because she is gone, Nightwish will never be the same.

    the song is about what happend between Tarja (the previous singer) and the band. the song seems hateful but it's actually a farewell song, but at the same time openly questioning whether Tarja knew what Nightwish was really about.
