Once upon a time there was a princess
She was pretty
In an average sort of way
A smart girl
And sometimes witty
But the princess had a sadness in her eyes

The Princess
Was a naive girl
Believed in fairy tales
Prince Charming
Silly girl
Did not know better
'Cause happily ever after there is not

The Princess, she always worked hard
And always tried to do her best
To make those she loved
So very happy
But felt that she had failed nonetheless

She had to step back
And look at her soul
To realize she had always been whole
It'd be nice to have
That one perfect love
It'd be nice to hear
Applause from above
To be totally accepted
And totally sure
To have all the knowledge

Completely secure
Once upon a time there was a princess
She was pretty
In an average sort of way
A smart girl
And sometimes witty
But now the princess had some wisdom in her eyes
