About Eva

"Eva " is the first single of Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish's sixth studio album Dark Passion Play. It was the first release to feature the band's new singer, Anette Olzon, following Tarja Turunen's departure in 2005. Initially the single was only released on the Internet and radio, with the release date to May 30, 2007, together with the revealing of the identity of the new vocalist (Anette Olzon), but due to a leak on May 23, the vocalist identity was revealed on May 24, and the song was released on the 25th. Officially, "Eva" started to play on Finnish radio stations YleX and Radio Rock at 7 AM, May 25, and was available as a download the same day. All European income from this release were donated to charity (Child Charity Foundation), and the income from Finnish Internet sales were donated to two children's homes in Finland. Eva's cover was announced on the official website on May 17. It features a young girl dressed in 19th century Finnish clothing with a teddy bear in front of a house by night.

6:30 winter morn
Snow keeps falling, silent dawn
A rose by any other name
Eva leaves her Swanbrook home
A kindest heart which always made
Me ashamed of my own
She walks alone but not without her name

Eva flies away
Dreams the world far away
In this cruel children's game
There's no friend to call her name
Eva sails away
Dreams the world far away
The Good in her will be my sunflower field

Mocked by man to depths of shame
Little girl with life ahead
For a memory of one kind word
She would stay among the beasts
Time for one more daring dream
Before her escape, edenbeam
We kill with her own loving heart

Eva flies away
Dreams the world far away
In this cruel children's game
There's no friend to call her name
Eva sails away
Dreams the world far away
The Good in her will be my sunflower field
