The Frog Prince Lyrics


An old fairytale told me
The simple heart will be prized again
A toad will be our king
And ugly ogres are heroes

Then you'll shake
Your fist at the sky
"Oh why did I rely
On fashions and small fry?"

All promises broken
Feed your...

    To the person who posted the...."what artist....what lyrics....You've wandered so far from the person you are, let go brother cause now we know" here are the lyrics to the song which is called "The Frog Prince" by Keana

    An old fairytale told me
    The simple heart will be prized again
    A toad will be our king
    And ugly ogres are heroes

    Then you'll shake
    Your fist at the sky
    "Oh why did I rely
    On fashions and small fry?"

    All promises broken
    Feed your people or lose your throne
    And forfeit your whole kingdom
    I'd sooner lose it than still live in it alone

    You were our golden child
    But the gentle and the mild
    Inherit the earth, while

    Your prince's crown
    Cracks and falls down
    Your castle hollow and cold
    You've wandered so far
    From the person you are
    Let go brother, let go
    Cos now we all know

    Soon, someone will put a spell on you
    Perfume, treasure, sorcery, every trick they know
    You will lie in a deep sleep
    That's when

    Your prince's crown
    Cracks and falls down
    Your castle hollow and cold
    You've wandered so far
    From the person you are
    Let go brother, let go
    Cos now we all know

    Although Tim (composer) says it's about frontmen in other bands, I think it's about his own bandmate and Keane frontman, Tom Chaplin. It's a long story

    *An old fairytale told me the simple heart will be prized again (his own songs are fairytales, and it's his heart).
    *A toad will be our king and ugly ogres are heroes (the toad, Tom, the ogres, Tim and Richard).
    *Feed (with music) your people (fans) don't lose your throne (singer)
    *And fortreit your whole kingdom (Keane) I'd sooner lose it than still live in it alone (he wouldn't make it alone, without Tom as the frontman).
    *You were our golden child (they used to adore Tom until he went wrong)
    *Your prince's crown cracks and falls down (your fame has fallen)
    *You've wandered so far from the person so are (obvious)
    *Let go brother, let go coz now we all know (let go you're sick and tired of this band: Tom had said before that)
