Tarja Week: Our Great Divide and Boy and the Ghost
Our Great Divide: In my career I have performed several great ballads. I love ballads and I was looking for a song where I could feel myself free and flow with the music. Anders and Mattias played me an amazing melody and I added my touch to some parts of the song. We wrote the lyrics with Hanne during beautiful sunrises in Ibiza. It started as a love song...but I cannot say where it ended.
Boy and the Ghost: The song represents the dark spirit of the album. BATG grows little by little in an unexpected way that becomes massive and mind blowing. It has a strange and mysterious story in its lyrics. Music flows like in a musical. Is the best companion to Sing For Me. Like two parts of a same song, both in music and lyrics.
