Aladdin the Musical - These Palace Walls Lyrics

JASMINE
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

LADIES
Told to show devotion every day
And not second guess it

JASMINE
If a new emotion comes my way

LADIES
You suppress it

JASMINE
What would be your suggestion’

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

JASMINE
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

ALL
Love comes to those who go and find it
If you must dream then stand behind it

JASMINE
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

ALL
Something waits beyond these palace walls

[Thanks to Alice for lyrics]
