for the heart i once had lyrics – nightwish

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 beats to the rhythm of the falling snow
blackened below.
the river now flows – a stream on 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 night
for the heart i once had
i believe and foresee
everything i could ever be.


time will not heal a dead boy’s scars,
time will kill.
