I believe in fairy tales

and serendipitous encounters

Catch a tiger by the

tail and make a wish

Drink from the fountain

I believe love will prevail

The path is clear for me to


Shooting stars will leave a


For me to fill with joy and


Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Leave your fear of

love behind

Let you dreaming

be your guide

If you seek then

you shall find

to see me like this.

Sorry Gwyneth although in

this light with absolutely

no clothes on you look...

and eggs and stuff.

Okay, I am totally not crabby.

Don't be afraid to

Gotta let it rain gotta

let it rain

But if there's a way if

there's a way

Gotta let them know let them
