don't stand so close now

don't smile that way

don't pretend after all this time

there's still something left to say

my siren song is ended

but you're still coming ashore

about to be dashed to pieces

on rocks that weren't there before

but you're the valiant crusader

your sacred cause to defend to the bitter end


the castle gate is guarded

a dragon at the door

seems like facing danger

only makes you want this more

you're the fairy tale hero

on true love you can depend to the bitter end


you've given love up for fantasy

you've made a demigod of me

the time has come to throw this dream away

it's not half as pretty in the light of day

it's in your hands

this doesn't have to be a bitter end
