My Fairy Story Lyrics

2013 West End
The Light Princess Musical - My Fairy Story Lyrics

Song was written by Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson.

Piper:
“Once upon a, once a, once upon a time,
Lived a Match Girl who would light
Her matches in
The dark,
And in the flames she’d see a seventh heaven ...”

Althea:
In the air
Is a world of my dreams,
A story come true:
Father’s here
And he’s proud
I can ride,
I can fight.
Every night
I recite him a tale
Like Scheherazade ...
He puts his hand in my mother’s;

As they listen,
They kiss.
It’s like this in my story:
My life’s seventh heaven
My mother’s alive
And Father loves me,
My floating world, where I’m gravity-free.
All that I wish for’s in
My fairy-story
Up high with my family.
Here Father loves me for who I am,
And he throws me a party
And he leads the games,

And I outshine all the other girls
By climbing the highest wall.
“I’m the Queen of the kingdom, ruler of you all!”
Then I race to the door at my father’s call...
Oh, the woe, he is not there,
My mother’s dead,
Is this a nightmare?
Does my father even love me?
If I’m to know I must go below –
Althea, stop!
Stay up there,
Way down here
Is a dark abyss ...
Here’s Mother’s kiss ...
Yes, it’s bliss in my story:
My life’s seventh heaven
My mother’s alive
And Father loves me, 
My floating world, where I’m gravity-free.
All that I wish for’s in
This fairy-story;
Why change the story?
My fairy-story
Up high with my family...
