Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Nightwish

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Nightwish's, "Amaranth"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Carrots that wander
Never faiding, raiding your heart
And Jesus' snow-white Zorro
Carrots that wander
Hiding M&M's in a lamb
Arthur they bray.
The Real Lyrics:
Caress the one, the Never-Fading
Rain in your heart - the tears of snow-white sorrow
Caress the one, the hiding amaranth
In a land of daybreak.
The Story: I found these misheard lyrics in a youtube film, complete with the matching pictures. If you listen to the song and watch the misheard lyrics, you really start to hear the wrong text. - Submitted by: Armin
Nightwish's, "Amaranth"
The Misheard Lyrics:
There is the one
Whose never ending reign in your heart
Induces snow white sorrow
The Real Lyrics:
Caress the one
The never-fading rain in your heart
The tears of snow-white sorrow.
The Story: I love the band, but I seriously cannot understand the singer sometimes. Still don't have this CD. Honestly realized the lyrics were wrong when I read this. Lol - Submitted by: christian
Nightwish's, "Bare Grace Misery"
The Misheard Lyrics:
A little munchkin eating in the snow
The Real Lyrics:
A Little Match Girl freezing in the snow
The Story: I've listened to Nightwish for a couple years. About a week ago, I was riding in a friend's car, and we were listening to 'Bare Grace Misery' and I was singing along. When I said 'A little munchkin feeding in the snow', my friend said, 'Woah, woah, woah... what?' and turned the song off. I repeated myself, and then he started laughing. He informed me that the line was 'A Little Match Girl freezing in the snow.' - Submitted by: Gwen
Nightwish's, "Beauty Of The Beast"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Beware the beast, v***** beast
The Real Lyrics:
Beware the beast, but enjoy the feast.
The Story: Okay, so they are a Finnish band who sing in English. I thought that's what the words were while I was on the phone. But it wasn't until three days later, when I re-heard the song and then rewound it several times, that I was sure that's what the lyrics. I thought it was one of the odd translations from a foreign language into English - but the song is written and recorded in English. - Submitted by: Lil_Dave
Nightwish's, "Bye Bye Beautiful"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Did you wear the ring that I wrought you?
Did you wear the lizard to watch me play?
The Real Lyrics:
Did you ever read what I wrote you?
Did you ever listen to what we played?
The Story: This is a good example of why you shouldn't listen to low-quality versions of songs before they are released. I even managed to convince myself that my version of the lyrics was sensible. Then I bought the CD and read the real lyrics. - Submitted by: TurmionLilja
Nightwish's, "Dead To The World"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We made it, yet so uninvited
Those words sent to Bisol.
The Real Lyrics:
Remaining, yet still uninvited
Those words scented my soul.
The Story: I though Bisol perhaps was some fantasy character or something. - Submitted by: Nabs
Nightwish's, "End Of All Hope"
The Misheard Lyrics:
This is the end of all hope
To lose the chiled face.
The Real Lyrics:
This is the end of all hope
To lose the child, the face.
The Story: I am German, and I am used to translating the lyrics whenever I hear my favourite band Nightwish. I always thought that Tuomas (Vanamo, lead singer of Nightwish) would have written this song in some kind of 'Old English', which isn't used today anymore. - Submitted by: Cynthia Cardui
Nightwish's, "Forever Yours"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Night, I wish you to come
So I'll be forever yours.
The Real Lyrics:
My time is yet to come
So I'll be forever yours.
The Story: I was very sure those were the real lyrics and when I saw somebody on a forum having these two correct lines as a signature, I thought he had made his own version to the song :D It was only later that I finally decided to check out the lyrics...and realized my mistake. - Submitted by: blushenka
Nightwish's, "Nemo"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'm in love with my seeds.
The Real Lyrics:
Gone with my sins.
The Story: I heard this from my headphones the exact same time my dad walked out of Country Fair carrying two bags of sunflower seeds, which he loves. It was such a funny coincidence! - Submitted by: Nicole
Nightwish's, "Romanticide"
The Misheard Lyrics:
God love and rest my soul
With this sun down, never ending
The feeling is gone, yet you ain't gonna see me fail
I am the decadence of your world,
I am an eider covered in meat
Happy hunting you doubled faced carnivore
Tell me why,
No heart to cry
Get me high!
The Real Lyrics:
God love and rest my soul
With this sun down, never ending
The feeling is gone, yet you ain't gonna see me fail
I am the decadence of your world,
I am an eider covered in oil
Happy hunting, you double-faced carnivore
Tell me why,
No heart to cry
The Story: Yes, when I first heard this song, I thought instead of oil, it said "meat", and said "get me high", but then I was wrong. In fact, I think I'm not alone in hearing these misheard lyrics. - Submitted by: Twilighter2
Nightwish's, "Romanticide"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Happy hunting, you taco-faced carnie fart.
The Real Lyrics:
Happy hunting, you double-faced carnivore.
The Story: I was checking out different groups with my friend. He's like, "Did that just say 'Happy hunting you...-'" Then I interrupted with a nod and blurted out "You taco-faced carnie fart." - Submitted by: Joe
Nightwish's, "Sahara"
The Misheard Lyrics:
He-Man crossed the way
The Real Lyrics:
Chasing him across the waves
The Story: The lyric I heard wrong comes in about 3:26. I realized it obviously couldn't be true, but it sounds so much like that and it's pretty hilarious. - Submitted by: S J
Nightwish's, "Tutankhamen"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Sacrifice me to the carrot.
The Real Lyrics:
Sacrifice me, Tutankhamen.
The Story: When I heard this, I wondered if the ancient Egyptians really worshipped carrots. - Submitted by: Calandra
Nightwish's, "Wanderlust"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Riding the dolphins
Asking them out.
The Real Lyrics:
Riding the dolphins
Asking the mountains.
The Story: I really didn't get why she'd wanna go out with a dolphin. Some kind of fetish! LOL! - Submitted by: Alice E
Nightwish's, "Wishmaster"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Napster! Appendice! Harpoon, seven cygars! Wario! this rifle! in me, jewish master!
The Real Lyrics:
Master! Apprentice!
Heartborne, Seventh Seeker!
Warrior! Disciple!
In me, The Wishmaster!
The Story: The funny part about this, was that i found completely natural hearing "wario" in a non-nintendo licensed song, but it felt pretty weird about the "harpoon" part...at the time i hadn't the net at hand, so i resolved talking with a friend...everytime we hear nightwish song, he still laugh in my face... - Submitted by: Shadenemesis
Nightwish's, "√Član"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Listen to a death metal far away
The Real Lyrics:
Listen to a daffodil tell her tale
The Story: I guess when u like a certain music genre, u hear it everywhere :'D even in lyrics - Submitted by: Martina
