Lost Northern Star Lyrics

  • Nov 3, 2009
  • by
Halloween is over but that doesn't mean there aren't some good times left to be had. This Saturday, I will be celebrating my 35th birthday &  this is the first song that comes to mind. For me, it represents everything that one could possibly fathom when they stop to reflect on their travels or certain experiences that could be easily described as life changing events. 

Tarja's voice helps to cut through the beauty of the song yet she harnesses a great deal of power in that strong voice which completely nails the common issues of forgiveness, guilt, & inevitable pain. These are, by no means, easy topics to sing about & quite often we'd rather not even touch upon those subjects in everyday conversation let alone music. Tarja sings about the transformational nature of the human experience nearly as passionately as she breathes life into her music.

It's never easy to stop & go backwards when you're trying to move forward but sometimes it's an absolute necessary to re-visit the turbulent shadows if only for a brief moment. Although guilt & pain are not necessary evils, they do break us & mold us. Sometimes for better & for the worst. However, what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger while we prepare for battle during our own winter storms. There are always going to be trials & tribulations in life but we must pick our battles carefully. Choose wisely & make decisions which will benefit you in the long run without harming others. You cannot always go back & correct the wrongs once you trangress.

Sometimes it may help to know you're not alone. Perhaps there are influential forces all around that guide, protect, & sometimes nurture. The battle ensues but the positive aspects of life shall still outweigh the negative. You have great things in store for you although it's the conundrum we know as life that may actually sustain you. It's not uncommon to overlook blessings, good fortune, & to not fully comprehend their meaning. These are justifiably human habits & we can often take great luck for granted. These unknown forces shall inspire us to do the things we have to do. I call them angels.

Legend says that when grief overpowers happiness
the northern star loses its light and falls down on earth
where thee become a man.
One person alone can help.
I'm the one who leaves shadows in your room at night:
I'm the reason you're listening enlightening you're eyes.
When Pan meets Apollo down with the sin
they will send tears of angels though kindness won't win.

Lost northern star
Buried in sorrow, I'll guard your mind.
Let demons howl outside.

Where the calm fields of snow become one with the sky
I am there; I am waiting as time passes by
I set up the weather to suit how you feel
Drop rain down with wishes, build grace out of steel

Lost northern star
Buried in sorrow, I'll guard your mind.
Let demons howl outside.

My soul burns.

Sending dream flakes your way.
painting pictures to help you each day.
Yet you don't know I'm there.

Lost northern star
Buried in sorrow, I'll guard your mind.
Let demons howl outside.
My soul burns.

I've spent years trying to make others happy & not really focusing on what's most important in my own life. Having said that, my own health & security are paramount so now I'm more … more
