Here you are alone, and you deserve it
Your 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 stack of lies is not a firm foundation
You cannot built a castle on a mountain made of stand

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

Goes once upon a time she fought a dragon
Once upon a time the beast was me
Once upon a misspent youth
She faced herselfand 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 tie that binds
She changed her heart
To change their minds

That's got to be my once upon a time
This once upon a time
I'll finally see my once upon a time
This time
