  • It was the night before,
    When all through the world,
    No words, no dreams
    Then one day,
    A writer by a fire
    Imagined all of Gaia
    Took a journey into a childless heart

    A painter on the shore
    Imagined all the world
    Within the snowflake on his palm
    A dream of poetry,
    I'll tell is over
    Cutting in,
    Falling back in to the stars

    I am the voice of never, never land,
    The innocence of dreams from every man,
    I am the empty grave of Peter Pan,
    A soaring 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 whole mad tale
    That grieves you
    Away to taste the night,
    Free and loose we fly!
    Follow the madness,
    How do you know what's real?

    Imaginarium, a dream emporium!
    Caress the tales
    And they will read you real
    A storyteller's game,
    Inside he flicks the gate
    The calling heart
    Is a limitless chest of tales

    I am the voice of never, never land,
    The innocence of dreams from every man,
    I am the empty grave of Peter Pan,
    A soaring 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 of dreams from every man,
    Searching heavens for another earth

    I am the voice of never, never land,
    The innocence of dreams from every man,
    I am the empty grave of Peter Pan,
    A soaring 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 of dreams from every man,
    I am the empty grave of Peter Pan,
    A soaring 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.
