The Crow, The Owl and The Dove - Nightwish: a cloze exercise

The Crow, The Owl and The Dove - Nightwish Canzone dai toni magici in cui in una specie di sogno si vedono arrivare un corvo (crow), un gufo (owl) una colomba (dove) e infine un cigno (swan). Il cantautore del gruppo finlandese Nightwish, alla domanda sul significato del verso finale, ha risposto in un'intervista: "è un segreto incantesimo, un rituale antico di rigenerazione e di purificazione nell'acqua".

[chorus]
Don't give me love
Don't give me faith
Wisdom nor pride
Give innocence instead
Don't give me love
I've had my share
Beauty nor rest
Give me truth instead

A crow to me
its distance
Such a proud creation
I its soul, envied its
But needed nothing it had

An owl came to me
and wise
right through my youth
I its ways, envied its
But needed nothing it had

[chorus]
Don't give me love
Don't give me faith
Wisdom nor pride
Give innocence instead
Don't give me love
I've had my share
Beauty nor rest
Give me truth instead

A dove came to me
no fear
It on my arm
I its calm, envied its
But needed nothing it had
A swan of she came to me
The lake her beauty sweet
I her neck, her grace
But needed nothing she could give

Gar tuht river, ger te rheged
Gar tuht river, ger te rheged
Gar tuht river, ger te rheged
