lyrics

v.1
I'll tell you a story about a little girl
Who wanted to go out and conquer the world
But the world was more scary than she had once thought
With villains determined to thicken the plot
But she was the hero, she knew she'd last
Through every turn of the page and drip of the hourglass

c.
Oh, and she grows

v.2
When real life hit hard, she turned to books
Where the greatest dangers were pirates with hooks
But she found herself trapped in the mermaid lagoon
And friends turned to sirens with deadly perfume
But she was the hero, she knew she'd last
Through every turn of the page and drip of the hourglass

c.
Oh, and she grows

b.
But growing up is hard
When you don't know when you'll stop
She looked up at the stars
And wished with every drop

v.3
In time, she discovered there is a way
To survive in the world with a heart full of play
Cuz it's not as scary as she had once thought
Even though villains can thicken the plot
They are just people who sadly forget
Their inner child hasn't disappeared yet

c.2
Oh, and I grow

I'm no hero, but I think I'll last
Through every turn of the page
And drip of the hourglass
