Once upon a time will happen right here, standing on this street corner.

I'm waiting again

Here on the corner

And it's cold out tonight.

But there's a chance you will meet me,

And so it's worth the chill.

My nose turns pink and my hands are icy

But my heart is warm.

I'm standing on the street corner,

Wishing you were here,

Wishing you were near.

Won't you come and see me?

Just a visit in the dark?

Where are you anyhow?

I look like a fool waiting here for you

But I'll wait as long as it takes.

I'm patiently cold,

Because I know you are on your way.

It won't be long before they stop laughing

At the girl standing on the street corner

Waiting like a fool

All by herself.

But I know better than anyone else


So I stay here on this pavement

Stubborn and Hopeful

Just waiting for my fairy tale to begin.

Once upon a time

Will happen right here

Standing on this street corner.
