Tuck Everlasting the Musical - One Small Story Lyrics


I don't expect to marry a prince
I don't long for a magical wand.
my nana told me her favorite fairytale, I yawned.
I'm not amused by mother goose.
I prefer my facts as facts.
if there's a beanstalk in your backyard, get an axe.

Spin me a story of wonder, I ask how and why.
But now I, now I wonder.
One small story and the earth opens wide.
one small story puts the country side  in bloom.
one small story and somehow I'm outside.
my yard, my house, my room.

I'm not a girl who plays pretend, turns her bed to an ivory tower.
I'm not a girl who trusts a boy she's know, an hour.
Now they expect me to believe, to nod and go ahead.
and fall for the tallest, tallest, tallest tale I've never read.

spin me a story of wonder, I ask how and why.
still I, still I must wonder.
one small story and the earth opens wide.
one small story puts the country side in bloom.
one small story and somehow I'm outside.
my yard, my house, my wood, my town, my room

maybe it's a trick, maybe I'm naive
but I believe in your make believe.
now I know the steps of facing the unknown
first you talk to a toad.
then head to the woods alone.
and when you run out of road
you are on your own.

one small story and the earth opens wide.
one big story puts the country side in bloom.
one huge sotry and somehow I'm outside.
my yard, my house, my wood, my town
doomed from the start, or blessed to be part,
of the story.
