Mark Knopfler - Once Upon A Time...Storybook Love

Storybook Love

Written and sung by Willy DeVille,

arranged by Mark Knopfler,

engineered and mixed by Steve Jackson

Come my love, I'll tell you a tale

of a boy and girl and their love story

and how he loved her oh, so much,

and all the charms she did possess.

Chorus:

My love is like a storybook story.

But it's as real as the feelings I feel.

My love is like a storybook story.

But it's as real as the feelings I feel;

it's as real as the feelings I feel.

Now this did happen once upon a time

When things were not so complex.

And how he worshipped the ground she walked on.

When he looked in her eyes, he became obsessed.

(To Chorus:)

This love was stronger than the powers so dark,

A prince could have within his keeping;

His spells to weave and steal a heart

Within her breast, but only sleeping.

(To Chorus:)

He said, "Don't you know I love you oh, so much,

And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?"

She said, "Don't you know that storybook loves

Always have a happy ending?"

Then he swooped her up, just like in the books,

And on his stallion they rode away.

(To Chorus:)
