Rumored Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I made a wish on that shooting star
That you would never go too far
I guess it was just another pretty plane, oh well
They tried to hide what was underneath
You went along, you didn’t see
In all, they were better than me
You felt, if someone was with me
As I watched you change
They would agree with me when I say

[Chorus]
“Hey, Prince Charming
The castle’s crumbling
The crown is melting too
People in these woods always seem to change
But I always throut that you’d stay the same
Yours was I face I always knew
Hey, Prince Charming
The castle’s crumbling around you”

[Verse 2]
You let her inside all those dreams
She cut them off, right at the seams
She says the final word from her is “No”
But you wouldn’t let go

[Chorus]
“Hey, Prince Charming
The castle’s crumbling
The crown is melting too
People in these woods always seem to change
But I always throut that you’d stay the same
Yours was I face I always knew
Hey, Prince Charming
The castle’s crumbling around you”

[Bridge]
I know you want it bad
I know you want it all
But don’t you know it hurts me
To watch you fall, so

[Bridge]
“Hey, Prince Charming
The castle’s crumbling
The crown is melting too
People in these woods always seem to change
But I always thought that you’d stay the same
Yours was I face I always knew
Hey, Prince Charming
The castle’s crumbling around you”

[Outro]
The castle’s crumbling
Oh, oh, oh
