Lyrics

The prince he slayed the dragon, and freed her from the chair. The ivy that once held her, he wound into her hair. He said: "Now that I have saved your life, the rules say you must be my wife. So he took her hand, and stole her heart.

The prince he soon became the king, and she became his queen. The people they all loved her, they all called out her name. She said: " I've never been so happy as I am right here and now. If it's a dream I never want to wake up."

Won't you walk with me into the sunset. Come and stand by my side. Through the phases of the moon, and the rising of the tide. Forever, as the sun burns in the sky.

A messenger came for the king from across the sea. Said:"There's a darkness growing in the east. The king said: "Well I must go my love for now my duty calls. I will return to you before the leaves must fall."

Some years had passed since the king had gone. Across the sea to save them all. She looked out to the east every day. And she cried to see leaves fall. She said: "I've never been so lonely as without you by my side. This is a pain I cannot live with."

She went out to the hill and laid down on the ground. And in the wind that blew, his voice came all around. The King said: "Won't you come and fly with me, and be here by my side? Leave all your pain and fear behind you, behind you as you..."

Won't you walk with me into the sunset. Come and stand by my side. Through the phases of the moon, and the rising of the tide. Forever, as the sun burns in the sky.

Won't you walk with me into the sunset. Come and stand by my side. Through the phases of the moon, and the rising of the tide. Forever, as the sun burns in the sky.

And the people found her dress and crown on the hill.
