Lyrics:

Lying by my side
Your open hand
Gently rests
A breath that sighs
Shadows cast
By candle light

I meant to say so much
Only eyes that touch
My broken tongue
Mute as strings
That are not strung

But if I were a prince
With a chest of gold
I'd build you a castle
To have and hold
With guards all around
To keep you safe and sound

Arms that brush
Softly break
The hush of night

My harp is turned to mourning
And my music
Into the voice
Of those who weep
Please don't weep
If I were a knight
In shining armor
I could save you
From your distress
But I'm just a man
With more or less
The skin I'm in

I'm not made of steel
But my heart is full
And it can heal

If I were a prince
With a chest of gold
I'd build you a castle
To have and hold
With guards all around
To keep you safe and sound

If I were a prince
I'd build you a castle
If I were a knight
I could save you
From your distress
If I were a prince
I'd build you a castle
