Led through the mist,

By the milk-light of moon,

All that was lost, is revealed.

Our long bygone burdens, mere echoes of the spring,

But where have we come, and where shall we end?

If dreams can't come true, then why not pretend?

How the gentle wind,

Beckons through the leaves,

As autumn colors fall.

(Spoken, only heard in "The Old Grist Mill":)

Somewhere lost in the clouded annals of history,

Lies a place that few have seen.

A mysterious place, called The Unknown.

Where long-forgotten stories are revealed to those who travel through the wood.)

(Second half, only heard in "The Unknown":)

Dancing in a swirl,

Of golden memories,

The loveliest lies of all,

The loveliest, lies of all.


  • Each of the lines, from Led through the mist to then why not pretend features a scene connected to each of the ten episodes.
  • The first time the song is heard, at the beginning of "The Old Grist Mill", the song is only sung up to the end of the spoken narration, but the second time it's played, at the end of "The Unknown", It starts at Oh how the gentle wind, skips the spoken part, and goes to the end.
