"Once Upon a December" as written by and Stephen Flaherty Lynn Ahrens....
Dancing bears
Painted wings
Things I almost remember
And a song someone sings
Once upon a December

Someone holds me safe and warm
Horses prance through a silver storm
Figures dancing gracefully
Across my memory

Far away, long ago
Glowing dim as an ember
Things my heart
Used to know
Once upon a December

Someone holds me safe and warm
Horses prance through a silver storm
Figures dancing gracefully
Across my memory

Far away, long ago
Glowing dim an as ember
Things my heart
Used to know
Things it yearns to remember

And a song
Someone sings
Once upon a December

    General Commentthe music in this song is so beautiful.

    "Far away, long ago
    Glowing dim as an ember,
    Things my heart used to know,
    Things it yearns to remember..."

    to me, that part specifically hits home. i think it means that as we've gotten older, we seem to lose a part of ourselves from when we were younger and there are times where our hearts try so hard to go back to that place.

    MemoryThis song reminded me of my grandmother, Nana, who died very recently. She was the best thing in my life, and this song has lots of meaning. It reminds me of memories i had with her.
