Rosamond's Lullaby

[Thematic Song from my Work in Progress ~ Frame story: Sleeping Beauty...]

(1st time :)

Sleep, Sleeping Beauty,
for a hundred years.
Someday you'll awaken
in joyful tears.
All the world sleeps deluded
dreaming death and birth,
Lost in suffering
upon our wondrous earth.

But sleep, Sleeping Beauty,
though you seem so far
In pure-hearted slumber
mindful you are
A reality dream world
isn't what it seems.
True enlightenment
awaits beyond your dreams.

Have faith, Sleeping Beauty.—
This spell that's bound you
still has a happy twist—
Sweet your surrender—
Once love has found you—
In a new enchantment
you'll be kissed.

Dream, Sleeping Beauty.—
Faith now must guide you—
Just let your wishes soar.—
Dreams can come true—
With your prince beside you,
You'll live happily
forevermore.

(Repeat whole song, with slight variation of lyric :)

Sleep, Sleeping Beauty,

Someday you'll awaken
in joyful tears.
All the world sleeps deluded
dreaming death and birth,
We're lost in suffering
upon our wondrous earth.

But sleep, Sleeping Beauty,
though you seem so far
In pure-hearted slumber
mindful you are
A reality dream world
isn't what it seems.
Your true enlightenment
awaits beyond your dreams.

Have faith, Sleeping Beauty.—
This spell that's bound you
still has a happy twist—
Yes, sweet your surrender—
Once love has found you—
In a new enchantment
you'll be kissed.

Dream, Sleeping Beauty.—
Faith now must guide you—
Just let your wishes soar.—
For, dreams can come true—
With your prince beside you,
You'll live happily
forevermore.
