Princess
On Display

Just turned seven, half past eleven

She bawlin' at the bedroom mirror with the curls tied up

How could they know, how could they know


Chest on fire, holds up the wires

She wonders were they meant to be red, no they said blue

How could she know, how could she know


Get up little girl, we're only minutes from your coronation

The whole family's attending, bring your best behavior

Concentrated, obedient, she stands

'Cause what other choice does she have


Princess, gown and all, you got the life she wants

Perfect, beloved, you get everything in your

Fairytale, written in detail, happy ever after

Bear the dress, free the curls

Swear a truth while crossing fingers

She decides, to gain her kingdom

At what price, at what price


Just turned eleven, half before seven

She bawlin' in the bathroom, avoiding adults at dinner

Nobody knows, nobody knows

Small talk beckons, what's she gonna tell them

When a little red wire shines amongst the blue

Then they will know, then they'll all know


Get out little girl, we're only minutes from your celebration

The whole village is arriving, have a good performance

Dance with balance and elegance

She's told it's the only choice so she goes


Princess, gown and all, you got the life she wants

Perfect, beloved, you get everything in your

Fairytale, written in detail, happy ever after

Bear the dress, free the curls

Swear a truth while crossing fingers

She decides, to gain her kingdom


Look at her, insecure

Look at her, so eager to serve, serve

Hiding hurt, look at her, her, her

Somebody tell her, just be yourself

Can somebody tell her, no matter what, what

She is beautiful, could somebody tell her so


Hey princess, gown and all, she'll live the life you've got

Perfect, beloved, more than everything in your

Fairytale, written in detail, happy ever after

Skip the dress, tie the curls

Own your truth with open fingers

She decides, to gain her kingdom

At no price, at no price
