Scarlet Pimpernel the Musical - Storybook Lyrics

MARGUERITE:
Listen to me, I have beautiful dreams I can spin you -
Dreams to linger within you
Close your eyes and we'll ride my carousel
I'll sing you stories of
Lovers whose love used
To fill me
And the lovers who will be
For you see, love is the one thing I do well
Come, let's believe love can be just as sweet as it seems
Let's live on dreams

In my dreams such beautiful lovers have found me
Storybook lovers surround me
Nothing is real , but I'm flying
Sighing: where, where, where is my storybook ending?
Why does my golden pretending
Leave me with nothing to hold ... but
My dreams?

Oh, is it only in dreams that we find our ideal love?
Are there lovers with real love?
If you know how to feel love, show me how
Ah, but my prince, if you can't be sweet as you seem
I'd rather dream!

Come and wake me! Come be the love I can hold now!
Storybook love leaves me cold now!
Show me the way to stop dreaming!
There is only one perfect storybook ending
That is the end of pretending
That is the moment I say: Love me now!

MARGUERITE and COMPANY:
Et sur mon manège, l'amour toujours est chantant
De mes rêves, c'est le commencement
Et j'espère une fin heureuse
Mais la fin de l'histoire ne vient pas très doucement
Pour l'histoire il faut faire semblant
Certes je n'embrasse que mes rêves, seuls mes rêves!
