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 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

Songwriters
HOLOPAINEN, TUOMAS LAURI JOHANNES
