AMY GRANT lyrics - Fairytale

AMY GRANT
"Fairytale"
(Brown Bannister & Amy Grant)

Fairytale, my life was just a fairytale
I was letting an illusion come into this heart of mine
Fairytale, searching for a fairytale
Hiding in a world where life was simple all the time

I was just like Peter Pan in Never Never land,
Afraid of what the future might be
Afraid to face the things I couldn't understand,
Afraid of things that I couldn't see

But fantasy,
I know there's more to life than a fantasy
There's so much more that my life was meant to be
So much more than make believe

Fairytale, it seems just like a fairytale,
But there's something in my heart that says this time the story's real
Fairytale, extra-ordinary tale,
Of a King who offers love so far beyond what I can feel

There's a world out there that human eyes can never see,
But it's just within the reach of the heart
Two Princes wage the battle for eternity,
But the Victor has been known from the start

Now I can see
The truth can seem so much like fantasy
But make believe was never as real to me
I know this time the story's true

I was just like Sleeping Beauty in a Netherland
I was dying under a spell
But then a Prince who comes from a foreverland
Awakened me from my fairytale
