Paper Crown - Alec Benjamin



The ExperienceCause it’s the story of a queen who’s castle has fallen to the sea... She thought it was love, and now her kingdom's in flames. It's gone, and she wants to get out, but there’s no one to love you when you build your walls too high...



Music video: Animation of a paper queen's castle, acting our the song literally and getting the message through. 

The Meaning of Paper Crown: Real love doesn't happen like in fairy tales. What often appears to be a fairy tale romance comes crumbling down in ashes. But once scarred, the right response isn't closing yourself up in your castle. You've got to be willing to try again, but learning from the mistakes you made. True love is more than just a feeling. 

Ask yourself: Do I close in on myself when I'm hurt? Can I get back up again? Do I base my relationships on my feelings towards others, or see them as they are? 

LYRICS:

A paper crown, and a heart made of glass
A tattered gown, and her kingdom of ash
She walks alone, can never look back
The story of a queen whose castle has fallen to the sea
She’ll make it out, but she’s never the same
She’s lookin’ down, at the scars that remain
But you hold your ground, though your kingdoms in flames
Cause it’s the story of a queen who’s castle has fallen to the sea
Knowing there’s no one who will be a king that will come and save his queen

[Chorus]
When all she needs, and all she wants, and all she finds
When all she is, and ever was, is compromised
Cause there’s no one to love her
You built your walls too high
And there’s no one to love you when you build your walls too high

[Verse 2]
She’s looking out, from the war that’s inside
She’s screaming out, cause no one survived
But when you’re all alone, you wait and you hide
Cause it’s the story of a queen whose castle has fallen to the sea
Knowing, there’s no one who will be a king that will come and save his queen

[Chorus]
When all she needs, and all she wants, and all she finds
When all she is, and ever was, is compromised
Cause there’s no one to love her
You built your walls too high
And there’s no one to love you when you build your walls too high

[Bridge]
There is no one, who is strong enough, to save your love
There’s no fairytale, There’s no fairytale

[Chorus]
When all she needs, and all she wants, and all she finds
When all she is, and ever was, is compromised
Cause there’s no one to love her
You built your walls too high
And there’s no one to love you when you trap yourself inside
