About Passion and the Opera

Passion and the Opera is the third single by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, released from their album Oceanborn, the single was shipped only in a cardsleeve. The song was played live only between 1999 and 2001, but since 2007 Tarja Turunen, Nightwish ex-frontwoman, is playing the song live with her own band, although when she does, the riff that starts off the song on the album is missing. The single's cover art features the Oceanborn owl with the same scroll as in the cover of Oceanborn and Wishmaster.

Princess of lust
Dignity put to dust
A virginal sight
Their apple to bite

Drink from my thighs
The rain of lies
A sight so cursed
Breasts which never nursed

An Aphrodite for mortal souls
Playing hide and seek in lecherous roles
Their erotic hour my tearless weep
Their satisfaction my infinite sleep

Naked limbs reflecting from the moon
I'll be there for you soon
First wish for this night:
Let me be your delight

Body of a virgin
Soul to the Devil's kin
Your God is me
In all that you see

An Aphrodite for mortal souls
Playing hide and seek in lecherous roles
Their erotic hour my tearless weep
Their satisfaction my infinite sleep
