Once upon a Time...Storybook Love Lyrics

 

Once upon a Time...Storybook Love Song Lyrics


Written and sung by Willy DeVille,
arranged by Mark Knopfler,
engineered and mixed by Steve Jackson

Come my love, I'll tell you a tale
of a boy and girl and their love story
and how he loved her oh, so much,
and all the charms she did possess.

Chorus:
My love is like a storybook story.
But it's as real as the feelings I feel.
My love is like a storybook story.
But it's as real as the feelings I feel;
it's as real as the feelings I feel.

Now this did happen once upon a time
When things were not so complex.
And how he worshipped the ground she walked on.
When he looked in her eyes, he became obsessed.

[Chorus]

This love was stronger than the powers so dark,
A prince could have within his keeping;
His spells to weave and steal a heart
Within her breast, but only sleeping.

[Chorus]

He said, "Don't you know I love you oh, so much,
And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?"
She said, "Don't you know that storybook loves
Always have a happy ending?"


Then he swooped her up, just like in the books,
And on his stallion they rode away.

[Chorus]
