  • Once upon a time somebody ran
    Somebody ran away saying, "Fast as they can"
    I got to go
    I got to go

    Once upon a time we fell apart
    You're holding in your hands
    The two halves of my heart
    Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

    Once upon a time we're burning bright
    That all we ever seemed to do is fight
    On and on
    And on and on and on

    Once upon a time on the same side
    Once upon a time on the same side
    In the same game, now why'd you have to go
    Have to go and throw it all in my flame

    Could've been a princess, you'd be a king
    Could have had a castle and worn a ring
    But no, you let me go

    I could've been a princess, you'd be a king
    Could have had a castle and worn a ring,
    But no, you let me go

    Stole my star
    La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la
    You stole my star
    La-la-la-la-la-la

    'Cause you really hurt me
    Oh you really hurt me
    'Cause you really hurt me
    Oh you really hurt me
    'Cause you really hurt me
    Oh-oh, you really hurt me
    'Cause you really hurt me
    You really hurt me Writer/s: Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion, Jon Thor Birgisson, Orri Pall Dyrason, Georg Holm, Kjartan Sveinsson, Brian Peter George Eno
