Bare: A Pop Opera

Once Upon a Time

Play

Jason
Once upon a time
I first held your hand
And love was not a crime
In a private world where
You said 'don't look down'
But then i did and now you're lost above me

So much left to say
Trapped alone here
With my best laid plans astray
Standing scared outside a cold church
Soul search, seeking some lost answer
From a god who loves me

Can i turn to you in my need?
Would you take me back or watch me bleed?
Are you there? there at all?
And as i fall from the person that i tried to be
Could you really love someone like me?

Once upon a time
All i needed was your hand in mine
Then i lost my way and
Now i know not what i do
I bow my head and turn to you
