Dark Chest of Wonders by Nightwish (Piano Version)

Dark Chest of Wonders is the opening song from Once, the 2004 Nightwish album. Piano version!

In my opinion, Dark Chest of Wonders is one of the punchiest songs by Nightwish and arguably their best opening song from any album. Although this is the piano version, Dark Chest of Wonders is originally by Nightwish, music by Tuomas Holopainen.

The song is just huge – there’s a massive sound, everything soars beautifully in Dark Chest of Wonders. The lyrics play into the imaginative world of Tuomas Holopainen. The album Once was the last to feature the first vocalist of Nightwish, Tarja Turunen.

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 back time
Follow the pale moonlight
Once I wished for this night
Faith brought me here
It’s time to cut the rope and fly

Fly to a dream
Far across the sea
All the burdens gone
Open the chest once more
Dark chest of wonders
Seen through the eyes
Of the one with pure heart
Once so long ago

The one in the Big Blue is what the world stole from me
This night will bring him back to me

Fly to a dream…
