Phoebe (Lyrics)

Location

Little ones sing soft and sweet

In their castles safe to dream

I once lived in a castle too

Long before I was torn from you

 

Father, forgive me for I have sinned

I've lost my way and I'm trying to find it again

And mama I'm begging you please don't cry for me

I'm long gone

6 feet underneath.

 

Oh won't you dry your tears,

The grass is greener from below

Haunted by darkness and burned by the light,

I had nowhere to go.

 

Shackles bound me

Here my mind is free

Can't hear the voices screaming

They remind me of things I couldn't bear to see.

 

Mourners, don't lay your flowers down.

Your bouquet of roses won't resurrect me now

Go back home to your castle and dream

Your glass slippers didn't fit my feet.

 

Oh won't you dry your tears,

The grass is greener from below

Haunted by darkness and burned by the light,

I had nowhere to go.

These are lyrics to a song I wrote that was inspired by a play written by a very talented friend.

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated before I record or perform it anywhere.
