lyrics

I was born in fairyland, it's perfect here they say
Every child's dream but I just want to run away
I had a mother once; I can't recall her face
They stole me away from her and took me to this place

And I'm a stranger here
After everything I've tried
And they say the grass is greener somewhere
On the other side

On my own, far from fairy wild
Flesh and bone, trapped in a human child
I recall, there was a magic land
Far from human hand

And I'm a stranger here
After everything I've tried
And they say the grass is greener somewhere
On the other side

Why did you send me here and take my place away?
Why did you steal my family?
There's no place to be myself here (be myself here)
I want to go home

I was born in fairyland, it's perfect here they say
On my own, far from fairy wild
Every child's dream but I just want to run away
Flesh and bone, trapped in a human child
I had a mother once; I can't recall her face
I recall, there was a magic land
They stole me away from her and took me to this place
Far from human hand

And I'm a stranger here
After everything I've tried
And they say the grass is greener somewhere
On the other side

I packed up my knapsack and I headed for the door
Saw someone in the mirror who was never there before
My face in the mirror and carrying a pack
Just as trapped as I, and never coming back

And we're the strangers here
After everything we've tried
And they say the grass is greener somewhere
On the other side
And we're the strangers here
After everything we've tried
But I don't think the grass is any greener
On the other side
