Nightwish - Storytime


‘twas the night before
when all through the world
no words, no dreams, then one day

a writer by a fire
imagined all gaia
took a journey into a child-man’s heart

a painter on the shore
imagined all the world
within a snowflake on his palm

unframed by poetry
a canvas of awe
planet earth falling back into the stars

i am the voice of never-never land
the innocence, the dreams of every man
i am the empty crib of peter pan
a silent kite against the blue, blue sky
every chimney, every moonlit sight
i am the story that will read you real
every memory that you hold dear

i am the journey
i am the destination
i am the home
the tale that reads you

a way to taste the night
the elusive high
follow the madness
alice, you now once did

imaginarium
a dream emporium
caress the tales
and they will dream you real

a storyteller’s game
lips that intoxicate
the core of all life is a
limitless chest of tales

i am the voice of never-never land
the innocence, the dreams of every man
i am the empty crib of peter pan
a silent kite against the blue, blue sky
every chimney, every moonlit sight
i am the story that will read you real
every memory that you hold dear

i am the voice of never-never land
the innocence, the dreams of every man
searching heavens for another earth
