Your eyes used to shine bright
But where is the shine now?
And you used to smile with such delight
But it left you somehow.
I wonder why you lost your spark,
I hope you find it again.
I pray you get out of the dark
Come back, let’s begin.
Prince charming is a myth or perhaps long dead
For no longer do they rescue damsels, they end up hurting them instead.
But sometimes princesses still wish for a knight in armor
To climb the tower, profess undying love and be their savior.
Someone to vanquish the evil witch and break the curse
To be there for better or worse.
Still, no longer does a valiant prince come and the princess no longer waits
They are all forgotten in the past now as they forge their own fates.
They are all but whispers, carried by the breeze
Because castles no longer grow on trees.
Sweet, sweet prince
I pour my heart to thee
The moonlight shines bright
As the evening calls to me.
I sing a love song
Hoping you would hear
The longings of this maiden
And that to me you’d come near.
I’m giving it all
Won’t you hear my call?
The stars above
Have heard my song of love
I dedicate to you and you alone
Oh sweet prince, won’t you make me your own.
It’s like the sun shines everytime he smiles
A light in that look
A hint of glitter
The warmest smile
A dashing air of grace and kindness
Where, oh where could such young lad be?
I’ve walked this earth for twenty-eight years
I’ve seen happiness, I’ve seen tears.
I’ve climbed mountains, swam seas
Seen butterflies and the bees
Yet, you….elusive and unseen
You are somewhere still, where I have yet to begin.
I wonder if you do exist
Unsure, my prince is unsure
He cannot decide
One foot wants to cross
The other however,
Left stuck on the ground
He wants to save me
Yet he’s the one that needs saving
He’s not sure if he’s ready
But he does not want to let go
He feels he’s unworthy
Ah! But that alone makes him the most worthy
My prince has been wounded
Broken it seems he is
He wants to be whole
The kind of man that he says I should be with
This boy, oh this boy!
Does not understand at all
His act of saving me
Is a cry for help
You see, I am not the one that needs saving
I am here to stay
To fight for another day
I continue to try and save
The one worth saving
It starts with once upon a time
and ends with happily ever after
There’s something about these stories that
we can’t wait to see what happens on the next chapter
We read on and somehow we can’t help but hope
that happily ever after is not just in a book
I guess that’s why we love fairy tales
and that is why we get hooked
Girls dream of Prince Charming
and boys dream of saving the damsel in distress
Of slaying the dragon or defeating the evil witch
and later on climb the tower and share a kiss
There’s always singing and dancing
a lot of merriment
A fairy godmother, magic and love at first sight
and evil is vanquished, it’s evident
It’s nice to imagine, it’s nice to dream
of living in a world of fairy tale
Where true love wins and always reigns
and true love’s kiss never fails
