Here you are alone
And you deserve it
You're friends have turned to stone
And that's on you

You had a cause to serve
But did you serve it?
Or did you see yourself in a way
That wasn't true

Why tell all those lies?
You feel unworthy
Like there isn't solid ground
For you to stand

But a sack of lies
Is not a firm foundation
You cannot build a castle
On a mountain made of sand

This is not your father's fairy tale
And no, it's not your mother's fault you fail
So when you're story comes to light
Make sure the story that they write

Goes once upon a time
She fought a dragon
Once upon a time
It beast was me

Once upon a misspent youth
She faced herself, she spoke the truth
That's how I see my once upon a time
This time

Life is not a storybook
But life unfolds in chapters
Turn the page
And start to make amends

There's no pre-written guarantee
Of happily ever after
Step into your greatness
Before your story ends
So when your story ends

They'll say: Once upon a time
A girl flew higher
Once upon a time
She made things right

Once upon a time that finds
She changed her heart
To change their minds
That's got to be my once upon a time

This once upon a time
I finally see my once upon a time
This time
