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 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
