"Once Upon A Time" (lyrics)

By brookeduckart



"Once Upon A Time" lyrics (song in the resouces) but concept-wise I thought the lyrics might fit as a text RECord for this collab as it directly relates to Fairy Tales, sexuality, and it's told from a female's perspective.




"Once upon a time…" that's how they always started,
with a bad wolf or witch and a princess broken-hearted.
if I could guess your name, pull the sword from a stone,
fly on a carpet, well then, I guess I'd be fine alone.




but I am haunted by:
• this passing time
• what big eyes you have
• who's been sleeping in my bed




[click your heels together, say there's no place like home.
now watch how you quiver, when tornado season comes.
name your poison; which Fairy Tale to believe in.
we've all been put to sleep. will we ever be awoken?]




they compare Sleeping Beauty to the Winter
and the prince's kiss to the Spring.
with fragile lips - the flowers bloom and the birds sing.
but tell me, what ever shall I do
if "my prince" never comes for me?
if "evil" wins this one?
what if it ends "unhappily"?!




oh, tell me a story.




tell me a story, a bedtime story.
because when I awake, the real story begins.
there aren't always heroes, no magic mirrors,
and if you want to slay a dragon - you better look within.




tell me a story.




"Once upon a time…" that's how they always started,
with a bad wolf or witch and a princess broken-hearted.




What if "my prince" never comes for me?! (2Xs)




tell me a story
a story
