Flashback to childhood :The Last Unicorn

There are so many versions of "The Last Unicorn" song, and I happened to find one song by Declan Galbraith.This was one of my favorite movies as a child, and I still love it. I also read the book by Peter S Beagle, and I think the movie did a wonderful job staying true to the novel. Anyway, here's a flashback to childhood, and a lovely remake.


When the last eagle flies over the last crumbling mountain
And the last lion roars at the last dusty fountain
In the shadow of the forest though she may be old and worn
They will stare unbelieving at the last unicorn

When the first breath of winter through the flowers is icing
And you look to the north and a pale moon is rising
And it seems like all is dying and would leave the world to mourn
In the distance hear the laughter of the last unicorn

I'm alive, I'm alive

When the last moon is cast over the last star of morning
And the future has passed without even a last desperate warning
Then look into the sky where through the clouds a path is torn
Look and see her how she sparkles, it's the last unicorn

I'm alive, I'm alive
