Once is the fifth studio album by Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, released on June 7, 2004 by Nuclear Blast and on November 24 by Spinefarm, with the US release on October 5 by Roadrunner Records.

GLS is really the best song ever. It handles the most important item - love - and in a intelligent amazing way not just "baby I love you yeah" POP style but much more deeply with metaphoras.
