Dragons Beware

from by Archers Rise

lyrics

Once upon a time
In a land not much different than mine
There was a boy who swore he could fly
Whenever he looked into the princess' eyes

And so the story goes
He's just a popper in tattered clothes
But he prayed every night
And wished upon a star
And his prayer went a little bit like this

God, hear my cry
And I'll slay a dragon if I have to tonight
For just one sight
Of her heart intertwined with mine
But your will not mine
Yes your will not mine

At last there came a day
When she was just a stones throw away
His moment had come so fast
This moment he did not want it to slip his grasp

And so the story goes
He's just a poor boy that nobody knows
But he stepped out from the crowd
And sang to her out loud
And his song sang a little bit like this

Darling, hear my cry
And I'll slay a dragon if I have to tonight
For just one sight
Of your heart intertwined with mine
But the Lord's will not mine, Yes the Lord's will not mine

But it would be fine
If we could ride
On this magic carpet tonight
And we can dance
Under a curtain of stars
Where only the heavens can see us from afar
