Well, it's by a metal group, but the song itself isn't necessarily metal, so I'm not sure if it will count...

A kite above a graveyard grey
At the end of the line, far, far away
A child holding on to the magic of birth and awe.

Oh, how beautiful it used to be
Just you and me, far beyond the sea,
The waters, scarce in motion, quivering still.

At the end of the river, the sundown beams
All the relics of a life long lived
Here, weary traveler, rest your want
Sleep the journey from your eyes.

Good journey, love, now time to go
I checked your teeth and warmed your toes;
In the horizon I see them coming for you.

The mermaids' grace, the forever call
Beauty in spyglass on an old man's porch
The mermaids you turn loose brought back your tears...
:rose: ~Nightwish,
Turn Loose the Mermaids


I guess it's a pretty literal interpretation of the lyrics...mermaids' grace, kite above a graveyard grey, sundown beaming at the end of the river (ocean?). And purple because I don't have anything purple in my gallery, it's mostly red, green, black, white, or sepia. I like this song a lot, it has a lot of nice, peaceful imagery. :) Also, hooray for not-redhead mermaids for a change :D brunettes rule
