Lyrics

 
Enthralled with life as a little girl
I looked at it from twirls and swirls
Somersaults and big cartwheels
In my festival of magic
 
I envisioned kings and queens
Princesses and dragon seas
Sandbox kingdoms full with scenes
Of unicorns and castles
 
I was enchantingly free
Living blissfully
 
Others called it fantasy
But I knew better, I believed
I remembered, I retrieved
A life with wizards, elves and me
 
We could do most anything
By wishing it to be and then
Look up here, oh, look my friend
I’ve sprouted wings to fly with
 
We were enchantingly free
Living blissfully
 
Later on the veils came down
A grown-up person I’d become
Memories faded, lips turned down
In solemn contemplation
 
About the life that I could make
Within the rules of church and state
Within the limits that were placed
On fairies long forgotten
 
I longed to be enchantingly free
Living blissfully
 
Now my eyes are bright and old
I find my wisdom taking hold
It comes not from my grown-up toil
But unicorns and castles
 
And everything my childhood grew
In sandbox kingdoms, it was true
Now I know I always knew
I only had forgotten
 
I am enchantingly free
Living blissfully…….free
