20. A Nightwish lyric that you think best describes you

This is a very good question. I feel and have felt related to many, many quotes from different Nightwish songs, especially during my teenage years. But if I now have to choose only one, it would be this one from Escapist:

This is who I am:
Escapist, Paradise seeker.

Not my picture; found it on DeviantArt long ago.

Other runner-ups are
- A nightingale in a golden cage, that's me locked inside reality's maze (Escapist)
- I am the voice of Never-Never Land, the innocence, the dreams of every man (Storytime)
- The faces of the past keep calling me to come back home (Rest Calm)
- Stop saying "I know how you feel". How could anyone know how another feels? (Song of Myself)
- Childhood games, Woods and lakes, Streams of silver, Toys of olden days, Meadows of heaven (Meadows of Heaven. Fun fact: every time I hear this song I think of our summer cottage on Åland)
- Why am I loved only when I'm gone? (Bless the Child)
- Should I dress in white and search the sea, As I always wished to be - one with the waves (Ocean Soul)
- I want to see where the sirens sing, Hear how the wolves howl, Sail the dead calm waters of the Pacific (Wanderlust)
- I weep to have what I fear to lose (Gethsemane)
