Shadows dance around me as I race alone
I will never rest until she's in my arms
So close and yet so far away...
A simple kiss to bring her back,
To make this story end

Not all knights in shining armor can make your dreams come true
He's not quite as charming as he may seem
Come and claim your queen!

The wild beasts are ravenous, they will soon devour you
Dark howls echo bitter cries but they fall upon deaf ears

Not all knights in shining armor can make your dreams come true
He's not quite as charming as he may seem
Come and claim your queen!

You're pathetic! What good do you do?!?
She had faith in me, I was her only escape
A most deep and subtle poison welcomes her unblinking eyes to eternal sleep
If I had shown, she would be mine
Who is the fairest of all? Tell me again! Tell me again! You know its me!
A simple kiss to bring her back, to make this story end

Not all knights in shining armor can make your dreams come true
He's not quite as charming as he may seem
We'll make all your dreams come true, come and claim your queen!

    This song is actually about SNOWHITE

    Its actually close to the ending of the story when Prince Charming, tries to
    rescue Snowhite and would not rest until she was in his arms, whereas a simple kiss was needed to bring her back from death, then the evil queen
    sends out ravenous beasts to chase the prince.

    it says particularly in this line about the part being poisoned by the "poisoned apple":

    "A most deep and subtle poison wlecomes her eyes to eternal sleep"

    and the Magic Mirror part:

    "Who is the fairest of all?Tell me again!Tell me again! You know it is me!"

    and the last stanzas of this song are obviously the part where the witch queen was seducing snowhite to eat the apple saying that her dreams would come true.

    Well KUDOS!!

    This song is talking about girls falling for another guy who winds up to be a jerk to them. That happened to me with my girlfriend who started to like this other guy who goes to her school and i felt this way because she said hes nice and sweet. The thing was he did drugs and was an alchoholic. I felt this way when it happened. Im glad she turned around and chose me before she got hurt. So this song is for the guys whos girls they love go for the jurks out there. so hold on to the girl you love, you will never know what will happen.

    i think that this song is about all of the girls who get fooled by the thought of a prince charming and we end up looking for someone who is too good to be true when the perfect person for us is right under our noses. and the song is asking a girl to realize that hes right in front of her.
