From the recording I Can Shine

Lyrics

Her friends told her from the beginning
To stay far away from that man
She just wanted to like the guy
Maybe she needed a better plan

A long time ago in a land far away
Maybe she could have done as she pleased
Now the truth is as solid as the ground beneath my feet
Still you dance in the storm
Trying to stave off defeat

The things he tries to imagine
And the things he tries to ignore
Dreaming he found him a princess
While he climbs into bed with a whore

A long time ago in a land far away
Maybe he could have done as he pleased
Now the truth is as solid as the ground beneath my feet
Still you dance in the storm
Trying to stave off defeat

Maybe it’s none of my business
Maybe I’m not being fair
Watching the waves, and the births, and the graves
Maybe they just don’t care anymore

Along time ago in a land far away
Maybe we could have done as we pleased
But the truth is as solid as the ground beneath our feet
Still we dance in the storm
Trying to stave off defeat

Maybe back in the day
You could have beat this disease
It is what it is
No matter what you say
A long time ago In a land far away
