once upon a time there was a very friendly princess
who was captured
by a big, grumpy, invisible wizard. he locked her in
the tippy top of his
tower and late at night when she was very tired,
getting ready to fall
asleep on her bed of stones, she would look out the
window, up into
the sky, and twiddle her thumbs and sing a song that
she just made
up. she didn't know why. it was just about a feeling
that she had. and it
sounded something like this...

i love you from far away
like i love the moon
you are the brightest star
in my cartoon

someday i'll find you
whoever you are
i know you are out there
but where?
you couldn't be far

now this princess got very very smart after years of
thinking in the tower
and it began to dawn on her that perhaps the
invisible wizard wasn't
even there! so, she approached the gigantic door
that kept her locked

into the tower and she OPENED it! then tiptoed
carefully down the
stairs to the bottom where lo and behold she walked
into a clearing in
the woods and she was free! and you'll never
believe it but there was
an entire village of forest animals and people
dancing and singing. they had been
waiting for her all these years! they sang together...

i love you from far away
like i love the moon
you are the brightest star
in my cartoon

someday i'll find you
whoever you are
i know you are out there
but where?
you couldn't be far

well, that's the end of the story
i'm getting kind of tired
i think i'll go to sleep now, goodnight!
