Wishmaster Lyrics

Heartborne, 7th Seeker
In me the Wishmaster


A dreamy-eyed child staring into night
On a journey to storyteller's mind
Whispers a wish speaks with the stars the words are silent...

    Just listening to this song it makes you feel that a presence (like a little boy) exists only to fulfill other' s dreams. That is what it fulfills itself. Like someone wanted to sacrifice himself to become a wishmaster. Only to serve the mankind. You can feel that this presence is holy, complete innocent and loving. Such a beautifull song from such a talented Band. Too bad Tarjia left. Her opera voice is tought and touching and the same time...

    According to the nightwish website:

    This is my personal tribute to fantasy, especially the closest to me; Tolkien & Dragonlance. These worlds have become a sort of inverted reality for me, where the story of "The Kinslayer" can't become reality... Moreover, I don't believe in this thing called "destiny". We are the masters of our own wishes, beliefs and dreams. Whatever you desire enough, it can happen. Destiny is an excuse for those who don't have the strength to fulfil their wishes. Everything is possible. Even the impossible.

    I think it's a series of fantasies about becoming the person who can grant all the world's wishes and meeting four characters from two book series, specifically Elbereth and the god Lorien from LOTR and Silvara and Starbreeze from Dragonlance. In the second verse they are being beckoned to the Inn of the Last Home.
