When I Believed in Dreams (And Jill Came Tumbling Down)

Once so long ago

When I believed in dreams

When fairytales

And magic spells

Were always as they seemed


I’d dream of a handsome prince

To sweep me off my feet

Our lips would touch

My face would flush

A kiss so bittersweet


I thought my prince had come

If only but a month ago

But Jack fell down

And broke his crown

Leaving Jill a little numb


He’d dragged her down with him

That devil in disguise

He tricked poor Jill

Ran down the hill

And smothered her with childish lies

The End
