Once upon a time I had everything.
All of life laid out before me, and I crowned myself king.
And all the rhymes, they rhymed, and my ducks fell in a line.
That was once upon a time.
Now it’s so… Oh, it’s so
much harder than I thought.
Much harder than I thought.
Once upon a you and me, I dreamed a little dream.
Everyone we loved showed up dressed in their finery.
And you stood up so sure, said “I do, I do, I do.”
That was once upon a me and you.
Once upon an evening star, I made a little wish:
To see the life I've lived, the ups & downs,
each one a little gift.
//Rewarded so by the Earth's next spin,
Got mercy now at the sun setting//
Now I know the end is more close than far.
That’s what I wished for on an evening star.
