A thousand years and a day

She said I'll sleep for a 
thousand years more in a glass 
box fit for a fairy tail queen 
 
Until all the stars fall from the 
sky and the moon crashed and 
kisses the bleeding sea

When all the kings horses and 
all the kings men grow weary 
and old and drop to their death 

Dreaming and wishing the 
world away the sun will soon 
forget to bring me a new day

My name would be lost among 
the whispering willows my story 
never told to any only my face 
a distant memory

I left a note that says don't 
look for me there isn't a key 

She said ill sleep for a thousand 
years more if only for a day
