Because I was taught to dream

Before I lived on earth i was a fairy princess
I caught frogs and called them prince 
and made myself a queen,

i traveled 'round the world
i slept in castles and fell in love 
because i was taught to dream
I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
to capture tinkerbell
they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
but i could always tell

I believe in fairytales and dreamers dreams like bed sheet sails
and i believe in peter pan and miracles 
and anything i can to get by
and fireflies

Before i grew up i saw You on a cloud
i could bless myself in Your Name and pat You on Your wings
Before i grew up i heard You whisper so loud
"life is hard, and so is love, My child, believe in all these things"
I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
to capture tinkerbell
and they were just fireflies to the untrained eye 
but i could always tell

Now I am fairy princess and married my prince
and have made myself a queen
I still travel around the world,
and sleep in castles
but now only in my dreams
i believe in miracles and bless myself in Your Name
I still fell in love with You every time I dream
because i was taught to dream
