EVERAFTER
Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

A child cries in the middle of the night
It doesn’t understand the world right
No one offers to explain
Why loved ones cause each other pain
The only answer to remain
Is run away and hide
To Childhood’s other side

I think I’ll be a magic bird of prey
A soldier with a dragon to slay
Whatever that I choose to be
The one that’s in control is me
Adults can’t hurt what they can’t see
My heart they’ll never find
I’ve locked it in my mind

AND HURT SHALL GUIDE MY HAND
FOR PAIN’S THE PRICE I’VE PAID
MY SORROW SINGS OF A FAERIETALE LAND
AND LOCKS ME IN THIS WORLD I’VE MADE
OF EVERAFTER,
EVERAFTER,
EVERAFTER!

Imagination covers all my fears
I haven’t grown up all of these years
It’s frightening what the mind can do
I’ve hidden far away from you
My music makes my dreams come true
I live in fantasy
Who needs reality?

But every now and then
I never know just when
I meet someone who tries to care
I cannot feel the love they share
They reach for me, but I’m not there
I’ve turned and walked away
I’ll trust another day!
