Nightwish – For The Heart I Once Had lyrics

Heaven today is but a way
To a place I once called home
Heart of a child, one final sigh
As another love goes cold

Once my heart beat to the rhythm of the falling snow
Blackened below, the river now flows
A stream of molten virgin snow

For the heart I'll never have
For the child forever gone
The music flows, because it longs
For the heart I once had

Living today without a way
To understand the weight of the world
Faded and torn, old and forlorn
My weak and hoping heart

For the child, for the light
For the heart I once had
I'll believe and foresee
Everything I could ever be

For the heart I'll never have
For the child forever gone
The music flows, because it longs
For the heart I once had

Time will not heal a Dead Boy's scars
Time will kill

For the heart I'll never have
For the child forever gone
The music flows, because it longs
For the heart I once had

    I'm truly moved by the depth, and symmetry of the song lyrics. Brilliant, elegant and timeless like the delicate tendrils that sprout the barren earth during the cessation of Winter. It depicts that accaumlative wear, tear of live our life. As we learn the inherent contradiction, and foramlities of living adult live; we lose the pretension of innocence. As we grow old, the romance of simple constructs such as the snow falling, the bite of the cold artic wind or the wonders of the falling leaves in Autumn lose the uniqueness, their mystery. The finale confesses that you can never regain what you've lost, and the world of novelty will always be the domain of children and fools.
