Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then some body bends

Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bitter sweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong
Certain as the sun
Rising in the east

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast x2

Off to the cupboard with you chip it's past your bed time
Goodnight love

    Love go so far back in time, its always ben one of the things you just can't explain! You can only feel it and react to it.

    It tells us that we can all change our minds for the right thing and that even when we start off disliking each other it can change.
