The Fairest Maiden

The sun comes up and the sun goes down. Spring
Has turned into autumn and now all the leaves
Are falling to the ground. White laced woman
When will all your dreams come true? Broken
Hearted she cries “I know you’re never coming
Back again so I guess it’s time I gave up on
Loving you. They say all good things must
Come to an end still I can’t believe we are
Really through!” But as the seasons change
And the snow turns to rain she is still all
Alone. Like a prisoner locked away in a care-
Less world of her own. White laced woman
Please don’t cry anymore. One day all of your
Dreams will come true! And he is not the only
Man that can love you! Well the sun comes up
And the sun goes down. The fairest maiden
Bears one heavy crown!
