We live the stories we tell ourselves.
          Once upon a time, in a castle far, far away…
We tell ourselves the stories we know.
          there was a charming young princess…
We know the stories we hear.
          with an agonizing secret.
We hear the stories we’re told.
          Her terrible secret was…
We’re told the stories our storytellers know.
          a wild and frustrating wish.
Our storytellers know the stories they hear.
          See, this charming young princess…
Our storytellers hear the stories they’re told.
          was a storybook princess…
Our storytellers are told the stories their storytellers know…
          and she wanted to be a real girl.
