Dark Chest Of Wonders Lyrics

Once I had a dream
And this is it

Once there was a child's dream
One night the clock struck twelve
The window open wide
Once there was a child's heart
The age I learned to fly
And took a step outside

Once I knew all the tales
It's time to turn...

    It's more than just the inner mind. In another song I believe they directly reference this song (the core of all life is a limitless chest of tales). this is about life, the ups, the downs, the triumphs and the losses.

    Who is the one in the Big Blue? Such a magical song.

    Maybe 'hook' not 'peter pan' though. It speaks to returning to a time of innocence and wonder where anything is possible. Nightwish does themes very well and the album title is 'once', and the songs follow this theme for the most part.

    I believe the dark chest of wonders is a reference to the inner mind or the place deep within your heart where you store memories both a good and bad type place. The song refers to the wonders of a child, I think it means the inner one.
