Nightwish – Elan
VERSE 1:
Dm                  F       C7/E       Dm
Leave the sleep and let the springtime talk
   Bb               F      C    Dm
In tongues from the time before man
            F        C7/E     F
Listen to a daffodil tell her tale
              Gm                   Bb       C         Dm
Let the guest in, walk out, be the first to greet the morn
               F       C7/E    Dm
The meadows of heaven await harvest
    Bb        F           C        Dm
The cliffs un-jumped cold waters untouched
              F         C7/E  F
The elsewhere creatures yet unseen
             Gm
Finally your number came up
     Bb    C         Dm
Free fall awaits the brave.

PRE-CHORUS: ( Dm) Dsus Dm Gm/D F C/E

CHORUS:
Dm              F              C
Come, taste the wine, race the blind
        Gm                 Dm
We will guide you from the light,
        Bbsus2                  C     C A# C
Writing naughts till the end of time..
Dm             F                C
Come, surf the clouds, race the dark,
         Gm              Dm
It feeds from the runs undone,
        Bbsus2    F                C
Meet me where the cliff greets the sea...

VERSE 2:
Dm                  F        C7/E      Dm
  The answer to the riddle before your eyes
  Bb         F          C        Dm
  is in dead leaves and fleeting skies
            F         C7/E     F
  returning swans and sedulous mice
                  Gm
  writings on the garden's book
         Bb        C         Dm
  in the minute of a lover's look.
             F          C/E   Gm     Dm
  Building a sandcastle close to the shore
    Bb       F            C        Dm
  A house of cards from a worn out deck.
                  F           C/E   A#  F
  A home from the fellowship, poise and calm,
                 Gm                Bb      C    Dm
  writing lyrics for the song only you can understand..

PRE-CHORUS: ( Dm) Dsus Dm Gm/D F C/E

Writing naughts till the end of time..
Dm             F                C
Come, surf the clouds, race the dark,
         Gm              Dm
It feeds from the runs undone,

Meet me where the cliff greets the sea...

Riding hard every shooting star

Come to life open mind
                    Em
Have a laugh at the orthodox,
Bm                        D
Come, drink deep, let the dam of mind seep,
       A
Travel with great Élan
                   Em
Dance a jig at the funeral...
