Anastasia – Once Upon A December lyrics

Dancing bears,
Painted wings
Things I almost remember,
And a song someone sings
Once upon a December.

Someone holds me safe and warm.
Horses prance through a silver storm.
Figures dancing gracefully

Across my memory...

(Instrumental interlude)

Someone holds me safe and warm.
Horses prance through a silver storm.
Figures dancing gracefully
Across my memory...

Far away, long ago,
Glowing dim as an ember,
Things my heart
Used to know
Things it yearns to remember...

And a song
Someone sings

Once upon a December

    I love this movie, and I really love this song! It's about a girl who doesn't know that she used to be royalty. In the scene where this song is played, she has entered the condemned palace and is looking at all of the things that were left behind when everyone fled. She feels like all of the stuff is really familiar, but she doesn't quite remember how she has seen them before.

    It is such a beautiful song! I love it! The first time I ever watched it was with my big sis nova! I love you nova! It just means alot to me since I lost my memory so many years ago. I myself am alot like anastasia! I just love her beautiful singing and her soft gentle and kind loving ways. I love the movie and the meaning of it in its self.

    Its about a young girl who doesn't kno anything about her past. When she sings this song, the spirits of the people who were killed during the revolution of russia try to remind her of what kind of world she was born into, and when she dances with her father,(the one who kisses her forehaed) she gets a sentimental feeling inside her, as if she knew him somewhere, but she can't remember.
