I have been beaten. Bewildered, betrayed,
Brought down by the lies with which these knights
Have wounded me with
Like the lie of being loved.
So I have raised these castle walls
To protect me, to shelter me
From these fierce bombardment of broken hearts.
These walls will be stronger
Stronger than their lies and falsehoods
These walls will protect me
From the arrows of pain to be shot.
Then, a lowly squire
Clad in leather attire
He did not just say he was mine
He showed me his loyalty.
He stayed by my side
He truly treats me like royalty.
Not because I am a queen
But because I am truly me.
In the kingdom, the waters melted and flown
From the frozen fountain covered with snow
The gardens of roses emerged and grown
All because this squire changed all I know
With this acquaintance I can be free
Because he lets me be me.
Barriers brought down by order of the queen
This is what love should truly mean.
