MsBahe, Yes, the operatic version is the original one & is on "Oceanborn".
The other version is a remake & is on "Highest Hopes: The Best Of Nightwish" album.

IMO, the "Oceanborn" original version is the best. :)

I saw Them w/ Annete in Orange County with my son. They were awesome.

This is Tarja singing the song, but there are two versions of this song that have different vocal tracks (both Tarja). The other version seems more operatic to me.

The other version is better. I don't know why she sounds so different in this one.

**... keyboarding sounds like he is clinging to his last moments with her. It is very beautiful.

I think Tarja's new work is very good - just in a different way.

This song was re-released, it was originally on another album and they recorded a new version and made a video. I think it might have been the last thing they made with Tarja, and you can get the eerie feeling that it is over when hearing the different version and seeing the video. It seems, almost, like a happy ending; in the very least, a bittersweet one. There is a war in the video, but everyone is a valiant hero in it. I think Tarja sounds very relieved and uplifted, and Tuomas' keyboarding

Tarja has an awesome voice, but she needs a good band behind her. Her solo album is horrible and everything she did with Nightwish is awesome. Anette is good in her own way and I like her stuff, but I like Tarja better.

It almost feels like it does. I'm listening to it and it seems to portray a sense of... eternity. Like something infallible, permanent, yet just out of reach...

oh how I wish this song would last for a lifetime . . .
