i crossed oceans for someone who was afraid of water

when it was his turn to cross, he said "i'd never"

i've kept my heart at bay ever since

tucked away, behind ivy-covered walls waiting for my prince

then you came along and stumbled in

tearing through branches with thorns

swimming through infested waters

and walking through fiery pits of doom

just so you could come and save me

so i crossed my fingers and i crossed my heart

hoping that we were going to last

hoping that past will remain as past

for the damsel with a broken heart

can love again, 'til death do us part
