These Palace Walls Lyrics

(Spoken) A princess must say this.
A princess must marry a total stranger, its absurd!

(Sung) Suitors talk of love, but it’s an act
Merely meant to throw me
How can someone love me when, in fact
They don’t know me’

They want my royal treasure,
When all is said and done.
It’s time for a desperate measure
So I wonder

Why shouldn’t I fly so far from here?
I know the girl I might become here
Sad and confined
And always locked behind these palace walls

(Spoken) I don't know princess...for someone like you the outside world might be, kinda overwhelming

(Spoken) Is that a promise?

(Spoken) I think it'd do her some good!

(Spoken) You do?

(Spoken) Honey I've never seen somebody who needed to get out more!

Told to show devotion every day
And not second guess it

If a new emotion comes my way

You suppress it

What would be your suggestion?

Stand on your own two feet
And ask why a certain question keeps repeating

Why shouldn’t I fly so far from here?
I know the girl I might become here
Follow your heart or you might end up cold and callous

Love comes to those who go and find it
If you've a dream then stand behind it

Maybe there’s more beyond these palace walls
What if I dared?
What if I tried?
Am I prepared for what’s outside?

Why shouldn’t I fly so far from here?
Something awaits beyond these palace walls

Something waits beyond these palace walls
