Precious Princess

In days like these I can hear your heart echo
to every song that I desire to sing.
Even though it is so hard to see through the yellow
with your melody I can pull on the perfect string.

I might not believe in the joy that the world may bring,
but my heart always tells me that your love is the real thing.
I might not believe in star signs shown in the magazine,
because your name rings in my head like the sound of a tembarine.
