Quotation excerpts from Antoine De Saint-Exupery's book, "The Little Prince"

lyrics

There was a girl,
so lonely the wind blew her away.
She walked the sun,
her eyes so blue and her dress so gray.
It imprisoned her,
and so she danced into the dark like rays.
And when she got to earth,
the wind came and blew her away.

["What does that mean, tame?"
"It is an act too often neglected," said the fox."]

There was a bird,
I saw every time I go to sleep.
Have you ever heard
the songs it’d sing? It sounds so sweet.
Oh what a bruise to burn,
our own bitter tears baked in our recipes.
And we still have to learn,
how to stand up when we fall on our knees.

["It means to establish ties...
... unique in all the world... but if you tame me,
then we shall need each other."]

Underneath the fur,
I’m just a creature of my own mistakes.
Like the rest of us,
I got a soul that sees and a heart that breaks.
Turn the mirror,
and you will see a mess that truly shines
more beautiful with time.
Without wounds to heal,
we might as well be blind.

["People have forgotten this truth...
... but you mustn't forget it."]

There was a girl,
so lonely the wind blew her away.
She walked the sun,
her eyes so blue and her dress so gray.
It imprisoned her,
and so she danced into the dark like rays.
And when she got to earth,
the wind came and blew her away.
