Criss, Darren - Once Upon A Time Lyrics




"The end" never seemed like it was good enough
Two little words seemed too small
I turned the page to find a blank one
As if the ones before never really happened at all

But what about the love, what about the old obsessions
We fell into when they were new?
What about the late at night heartfelt confessions?
The things we tried, the tears we cried
Well they seem to hide away

I got one more part for the storybook
One more road that I should've took
One more thing that used to have my heart

I got one more place in my memory
Where I wish with every part of me
I could go back, go back to the start

I know it's too far down
And much too high to climb
But why can't we bring it on back to once upon a time?

Here we are, standing at the finish line
And I swear it's like we came a million miles
And if I take one more step I will forget the rivers we've crossed
Our happy ending will be lost if we say goodbye

What about the way our fable wasn't fiction?
It was real to you, it was real to me
So what about this lovely contradiction
We were never sure of what we were but we knew we could never be

And now I got one more part for the storybook
One more road that I should've took
One more thing that used to have my heart

I got one more place in my memory
Where I wish with every part of me
I could go back, go back to the start

But I know it's too far down
And much too high to climb
Why can't we bring it on back to once upon a time?

But what about the way our fable wasn't fiction?
It was real to you, it was real to me
So what about the ups and downs and all the lessons?
The things we learned, the stones we turned, well, that bridge has burned away

And now it's just one more part for the storybook
One more road that I should've took
One more thing that used to have my heart

Yeah, I know it's too far down
And much too high to climb
Oh, I just wish we could bring it on back to that once upon a time

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
[x6]

Back to the start, back to your heart
To that once upon a time
Back to the start, back to your heart
To that once upon a time

I know it's too far down
And much too high to climb
I just wish we could bring it on back to that once upon a time

    "I sort of cherish the moments before all this stuff happened, before I could play for all you fine folk at the House of Blues of Chicago, before I could do anything Thursday nights at Fox. For all that stuff. It wasn't really about proving yourself, it's about being passionate, and not to say that I lost that, those are some of my favorite moments, but the song's also about missing the past, but being okay with the present. And I want to thank you all for making the present such a wonderful one. So the song is about that, it's called Once Upon A Time."
