An old fairytale told me 
The simple heart will be prized again 
A toad will be our king 
And ugly ogres are 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
