Lyrics
Beautiful princess
© 2006 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)
Dedicated to the memory of Diana, Princess of Wales (1961 - 1997)

Beautiful princess, come walk with me
There's a beautiful garden, I want you to see
Candles in tree tops, burn in the rain
I'll take you home, to your island again

Beautiful princess, come dance with me
Tell me the secrets, you cannot keep
Fire flies and dragons, are following you
Beautiful princess, oh - what did you do?

Chorus:
Wheel of misfortune - is destiny's game
For winners and losers - the outcome's just the same
Tragedy falling down, like blood in the rain
No silent witness - no one to blame

Beautiful princess, oh, vanity's child
Reflections in mirrors cannot reconcile -
The comfort of madness with the beauty of fame
All that is lost and gone, you'll find again

Beautiful princess, your fortune was told
Lovely forever, you'll never grow old
The price of temptation - for freedom you paid
On your island fire flies and dragons wait

Wheel of misfortune - is destiny's game
For winners and losers - the outcome's the same
Tragedy falling down, like blood in the rain
Nothing is left to claim - just blood in the rain / in the rain

Oh silent angel, what do you see?
Is it my princess - and can she see me?
Sing little soldier, as evening draws near
Sing little soldier, the princess is here

Beautiful princess, come sail with me
There's a beautiful island, I want you to see
Candles in tree tops, burn in the rain
I'll take you home
I'll take you home - to your island again
