The Life of a Princess

Everyone envies the life of a princess
But no one knows how cold it gets
Inside a stone castle, especially at night
'Cause the servants go home and the fire dies
 
And way beyond the drawbridge
The lights flicker brightly
Down in the pubs of the town
And she pictures the dance, she imagines the song
And the stairs to her chamber seemed so long
 
And I will fight my battles in person
But I will not be crippled
By dreams that have withered and died
When nobody was watching
I will not be crippled by dreams
 
On the banks of the River Clyde
Lies the wreckage of a boat
Her bow ground away by the waves
She was carrying sugar is how the tale goes
And her sweetness was lost to the deep blue below
 
And I will fight my battles in person
But I will not be crippled
By dreams that have withered and died
When nobody was watching
I will not be crippled by dreams
 
I know too many places and too many faces
And too many ways to say goodbye
When you're one part water and two parts air
Well, you tend to start floating till you're no longer there
 
And I will fight my battles in person
But I will not be crippled
By dreams that have withered and died
When nobody was watching
I will not be crippled by dreams
 
Oh, I will fight my battles in person
But I will not be crippled
By dreams that have withered and died
When nobody was watching
I will not be crippled by dreams
No, I will not be crippled by dreams
