about

A Historical Folk Song

lyrics

You thought you had it under control
But how were you to know?
This crying child, a rising sun
A rose can still draw blood
You used up all your energy
Being who he thought you ought to be

CHORUS
Sommeil, Belle Reine
Anna Bolina
Rêve, Belle Reine
Anna Bolina

The sun that shone upon your skin
Took its light and cast upon
A beauty far more fair than you
There’s nothing you can do

His wandering eyes have magnified
The glory of your hated rival
Step down from your gilded throne
Move over for the new beloved

CHORUS

If you stay inside yourself
Maybe you won’t feel lonely
The tower holds you prisoner
The stonewalls keep you cold

It’s the scaffold for you, my queen,
Riches won’t save you now
Your beauty captured his eyes,
Now it’s condemning you to die,

CHORUS x2
