The Princess

If you would like to listen to the song whilst reading the lyrics press here_clk=arttabs

Why should the princess cry?
Why should the princess cry?
Her world is turning at a faster pace,
Her tears are marking the lines on her face.

The law has passed, the king is wise.
He wipes the tears from the princes eyes.
And the commoners can see the end.
His only daughter lost her only friend.

And the people of the land are questioning their royal king.
And the people of the land are feeling sad for his next of kin.
Taking a chance on a little romance,
What is the girl going to do?

Why should the princess die?
Why should the princess die?
Contemplation for emotional mend,
Will she feel no pain when she is dead?

The king is mad ‘cause he knows it’s not right.
His only daughter is planning suicide.
Insanity is playing with his head.
What will he do when his daughter is dead?

Why should the princess cry?
Why should the princess cry?
I’ll come and rescue her in case she dares,
I am the knight to take away all her cares.

Around the year 1996 I was in an experimental musical duo called “Hypothetical Reality”.
It was myself and long time friend and drummer, Vince Sanna. We got to spend 6 months writing and a few days recording an EP of which this song was a track.
If you follow this link
It will take you to a site where this and other music we wrote can be found and listened to.
Other songs off this EP are Better Days, I Am God and “Don’t”.
