Once Upon A Time... Storybook Love (Album Version)

Once Upon A Time... Storybook Love (Album Version)

Mark Knopfler

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 worshiped 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."
And 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 the rode away.
