We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky

Written by howard blake used the the old movie the snowman. Sung by a st pauls cathedral choirboy. This brings back childhood Christmas memories.

It's supposed to be "The people far BELOW are sleeping as we fly" instead of "above". Otherwise *AWESOME* song!!!!!!!

It's a cover & a very good one.
Though Tuomas has said that he wished that he had written it.
IMO, I think his song "Sleeping Sun" is in a similar vein as this song.

Did they cover this song, or did Tuomas write it?

Beautiful Song!!! Love it!

Both "Sleeping Sun" and "Walking in the Air" are very beautiful... e v e n though "Walking in the Air" is about a boy and his snowman, and "Sleeping Sun" is about a solar eclipse. Hey Tuomas, I wish I wrote "Sleeping Sun"...and I'm sure I'm not the only one. :)

I love this song, mostly because it fits a couple in a novel I'm writing. I also find it hilarious that five of the six 'similar songs' that are showing for me are by Within Temptation. The other is by Evanescence. Never thought Nightwish was anything like them, aside from the girl lead singers.

Tuomas once said in an interview that he wished that he had written this song. But I think that his song "Sleeping Sun" is kind of in the same vein as this song is. Though the story/messag e in it is different. Both are equally beautiful.
I like the original version of 'Sleeping Sun' better than the 2005 remake/updat e .
Tarja's operatic vocals on the original are better than the non-operatic 2005 remake...at least IMHO.

Celtic Woman actually did a version of this song, with "Last Rose of Summer" as the intro. It's on their first album. Rather different from Nightwish's version, needless to say.
