Sometimes

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away a prince fell in love with a serving girl

And the lion laid his life down for the boy who had betrayed him

And the knight slew the dragon and the kingdom was saved

But I'm a cynic, I'm a woman of the World

And I know that life doesn't work that way

I know from experience the necessity of common sense

And the only one I'll ever put my faith in is me.

 

But sometimes I need to believe

When the World becomes too cold

And sometimes I have to give in

Sometimes.

 

Life is not a fairy-tale, the good guys rarely win and love, as far as I'm concerned

Is an unsettling distraction which always ends in tears

You don't often get white chargers round here

And two thousand years ago in the greatest story ever told

A hero came to save the World

And it hurts me now to wonder that when I believed he loved me

Was that the greatest fantasy of all.

 

But sometimes, I need to believe

Have to let the barriers fall

And sometimes I have to give in

Sometimes.

 

And those times I ride the dragon

And Princes vie for my hand

And I will live happy ever after

Sometimes,

 

Sometimes I need to believe

Have to let the barriers fall

And sometimes I have to let you in

Sometimes.
