lyrics

If you drop breadcrumbs while you’re off adventuring you’ll lose your way in darkness, so we’re heard
We learn about their failures across the centuries but at least they got to feed some hungry birds

You can say that I’ve been clever or you can say that I’m a fool
But you know that I would never forget the lessons learned in nursery school

Let’s go out all dressed up fancy, make believe and take a chance on city lights (ba ba ba ba)
Wander out into the forest like some Grimm’s fairytale tourist, see the sights
Let me know or let me go.

Last night I dreamed that I was Cleopatra bound for Julius Caesar, wrapped up in a rug
When I awoke it wasn’t Alexandria, just cats and blankets tucked around me snug

And you can treat me like a peasant or you can treat me like a queen
But all that matters in the present is recognizing what I’ve never been

Let’s go out all dressed up fancy, make believe and take a chance on city lights (ba ba ba ba)
Wander out into the forest like some Grimm’s fairytale tourist, see the sights
Let me know or let me go.

And if I said that I was lonely or if I said I’m still afraid
You would know that it was only me making lemons out of lemonade

Let’s go out all dressed up fancy, make believe and take a chance on city lights (ba ba ba ba)
Wander out into the forest like some Grimm’s fairytale tourist, see the sights
Let me know or let me go.
