queen on her throne

may i pretend you love me

can i build castles in the sky

that you love me like no other

that you have crowned me as your queen

our love it would build kingdoms

a touchstone for future legends

i imagine all our children

young sons, strong and proud

shall i sit and wait for you

pretend that it was all real

for the ruin that you have made of me

is just too much to bear

i find there is no mending

please let me pretend instead of breaking
