Let me take a stab at this
You looked more into what passed
Than what was there
Than what was there
Than what was there

Put the pieces in your head back together
And take it all in stride
The weather seems fair
The weather seems fair
The weather seems fair
Fairer than what you believed

As you take your crawl back to your castle
Look at the blisters on your feet
They don't hurt that much
And as you lay to catch your broken breath
Take a good, hard look at your heart you've been dragging along
It doesn't seem too cold to clutch
To clutch on to

Let me take a stab at this
You've doubted yourself too many times
When love was there
When love was there
When love was there

Put your head back together
You over-thought your insecurities when clearly
No one cared
No one cared
No one cared
Cared to think it was a problem

I know it's hard to swallow today
Sure, it's your fault, but hey
With these memories still haunting you, you won't be so alone
Take your keys and peel
Out, and look, you're wounds are beginning to heal
Even though you were turned to stone
With one shake of the mane, regain the throne
