In a castle Down a long road A little girl was born To a king and To a queen and Her mother's eyes welled up with tears of joy Staring at the tiny face Of a miracle she made She would say I love you She would say I love you
Summer came and went Autumn rolling in Trees all stripped to bone Daddy's little girl in his arms, well They sit upon his throne Who is that thief hiding in the dark? Just a little girl who stole his heart
And he would say I love you He would say I love you He would say I love you
With only these three words repeating A simple greeting, but it's all you wanna keep Clever lips can be misleading A tongue can fly away And won't come back But, it's only these words we recognize
Six o'clock A.M The alarm rings out Awoken from the dream No more castle down a long road No more kings and no more queens But she's a princess none the less And a handsome prince is what she'll get
He will say I love you He will say I love you He will say I love you He will say I love you He will say I love you He will say I love you

Blackgiveswaytoblue from EuropeOk so now the original version mentioning Toni and Christopher of this song is going to be released? I would think that he wrote songs for all of his children and the one on the HT album is for Lily..and I really hope that if the song was meant for her, he told her.
Nikki from CaliforniaWhy is Vicky trying to make it seem like the Higher Truth song Only These Words wasn’t written for his first daughter Lily? The lyrics are very clear and his interviews about it are written clearly as well. He wrote Dandelion for Toni, why is she upset that Only These Words was for Lily? They each got their own song, seems like teenage jealousy towards Lily from both Vicky and the middle daughter Toni. Sad for them that they’re so immature.
Katieb from NyAccording to Matt Robinson, Chris' first demo recorded was for Toni BUT!!! He told Matt Robinson, music journalist, the first bars and verses of the song was written in 2002 for his other daughter. When he recorded final version for 2015 album he decided instead to direct it to Lily, as a gift to her because they were growing closer. As poster says below probably guilt too xx
Stoplyingvicky from ChicagoThis song has been confirmed as being written for Cornell's first born daughter, Lily. He confirmed it to other musicians during the production process. It's told from a dream perspective of a girl who's life isn't the cosy fairytale it should be, and Cornell expresses his guilt both at the failure of his first marriage and the breaking of the 'fairytale' life Lily should have had. This song is not about Toni Cornell. And her family all know that too.
Zelda from UsaAnd if he did write this about toni, then hes a s--tty father who tried to pretend he didnt have a life before vicky cornell
Zelda from UsaThis song was not written about toni cornell. I hate how people try to deny the fact that he had a beautiful daughter from his first marriage named Lily Cornell Silver who looks just like him by the way. Her parents divorced, she was borin in the summer. Song is definitely referencing Liky. Every blasted song cant be about toni sheesh
Lue Ann from IlHe obviously wrote this song about his daughter Toni. She was his princess and him and his wife loved her and represent the king and queen. And the ending of the song is a promise that she will one day find a man who will love her just as much.
