"bring me home or leave me be
my love in the dark heart of the night
i have lost the path before me
the one behind will lead me
bring me home
just another loop in the hangman's noose
take me, cure me, kill me, bring me home
every way, every day
i keep on watching us sleep
relive the old sin of Adam and Eve
of you and me
forgive the adoring beast..."
~Ghost Love Score, Nightwish
This one is, admittedly, more gruesome than the two before it...but honestly, so are the lyrics here.
In the overarching story of Nightwish, I always imagined a character called Poet, who is sort of the Dead Boy all grown up. Always fascinated by and flirting with the dark, always very innocently. And sometime during the Century Child story, the Dark bit back. He ceased to be the Child and turned into a beast; turned in on himself, in a sense. A werewolf, in my mind. Ghost Love Score to me is the telling of him being hurt so badly by a love that he becomes trapped within his own darkness, bleeding out, with no hope of being saved...and this image is the center of it.
I was going to have a ghost choir here as well, but then I started looking at pictures of howling wolves and I could just see them in my head, singing this part. The next image, the last one, will have both ghost and wolf choirs.

Front howling wolves: I have so many wolf images gathered from over time sitting on my computer...this was one of them.
