Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Once upon a time you were mine
When we took flight like castles in the sky
And oh your perfect looks had me hooked
This heart you took to castles in the sky

[Refrain]
Ah ooh, could've been happy ever after
Ooh, could've been happy ever after

[Pre-Chorus]
Like Sleeping Beauty never woke up
Like Rapunzel but he never climbed up
Cinderella never found the slipper
As for you

[Chorus]
You never stayed for love
Stay for love, stay for love, stay for love
And you stay for love, stay for love, stay for love
Stay for love now

[Post-Chorus]
You just tore out our last chapter

[Verse 2]
A long time ago fantasies grew
But hearts were cold like castles in the sky
Prince that you once seemed, sold me a dream
Was it make believe, like castles in the sky?

[Refrain]
Ah ooh, could've been happy ever after
Ooh, could've been happy ever after

[Pre-Chorus]
Like Sleeping Beauty never woke up
Like Rapunzel but he never climbed up
Cinderella never found the slipper
As for you

[Chorus]
You never stayed for love
Stay for love, stay for love, stay for love
And you stay for love, stay for love, stay for love
Stay for love now

[Bridge]
Our spark couldn't hold a flame
You play love like it's a game
Now look what we became
(Ah, ah, ah)
We sunk in stormy weather
You lost the hidden treasure
Now I'm so much better
(Ah, ah, ah)

[Chorus]
You never stayed for love
Stay for love, stay for love, stay for love
And you stay for love, stay for love, stay for love
Stay for love now

[Post-Chorus]
You just tore out our last chapter
