An old fairytale told me
The simple heart will be prized again
A toad will be our king
And ugly ogres our heroes
Then you’ll shake
Your fist at the sky
‘Oh why did I rely
On fashions and small fry?’

All promises broken
Feed your people or lose your throne
And forfeit your whole kingdom
I’d sooner lose it than still live in it alone
You were our golden child
But the gentle and the mild
Inherit the earth, while

Your prince’s crown
Cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You’ve wandered so far
From the person you are
Let go brother, let go
Cause now we all know

Soon, someone will put a spell on you
Perfume, treasure, sorcery, every trick they know
You will lie in a deep sleep
That’s when

Your prince’s crown
Cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You’ve wandered so far
From the person you are
Let go brother, let go
Cause now we all know
