Once upon a time
There was a girl
Who lived in the land
Of dreams unreal

Hiding from reality
Treated like a stranger
Living in her fantasies
Trapped within their world

Once upon a time
Her hopes had died
No one there to hear
Her futile cries

Living in a house of stone
No one on her side
Family in name alone
No place left to hide
Aah!

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time

Once upon a dream
A man will come
And give her everything
She wants and loves

But in the morning
She'll awake
To face the room around her
It's just another lonely day,

And bitterness surrounds her
Bitterness surrounds her
Aah!
