Frog Prince Lyrics

by Keane

An old fairytale told me
The simple heart will be prized again
A toad will be our king
And ugly ogres our heroes

Then you'll shake
Your fist at the sky
"Oh why did I rely
On fashions and small fry?"

All promises broken
Feed your people or lose your throne
And forfeit your whole kingdom
I'd sooner lose it than still live in it alone

You were our golden child
But the gentle and the mild
Inherit the earth, while

Your prince's crown, cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You've wandered so far, from the person you are
Let go brother, let go, 'cos now we all know

Soon, someone will put a spell on you
Perfume, treasure, sorcery, every trick they know
You will lie in a deep sleep
That's when

Your prince's crown, cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You've wandered so far, from the person you are
Let go brother, let go, 'cos now we all know
