Bitter Fate Lyrics

2013 West End
The Light Princess Musical - Bitter Fate Lyrics

Song was written by Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson.

Digby:
This is it, I submit –

Llewelyn:
I yield –

Both:
I will serve the crown no matter what.

Digby:
I am the Solemn Prince;
And to be the Solemn King’s my lot.

Both:
Nothing ever changes
In our realm of blue.

Digby:
I turn my back on all delight,
On all the joys I knew.

Both:
I’ve no memory of my mother –

Digby:
And I never knew a Princess,
Wear the crown, bear the weight:

Both:
This is fate...

Digby:
What was that? What a lie! What a trick –
I am plunging into an abyss –

Llewelyn:
Controls and plots and traps –

Both:
So my life is nothing more than this?
Nothing ever changes –

Digby:
Father’s grand design –

Llewelyn:
Should I have chosen banishment?

Digby:
And all his sins are mine.

Both:
Mother’s faded from my memory –

Digby:
And the Princess is a phantom,
Wear the crown, bear the weight:

Both:
This is fate,

Digby:
Bitter fate ...
