D G D
Lost in the valley of vaults/dolls/Oz(?)
G D G D
Fell from the path, it was nobody's fault
Bm A
That I was alone.
D G D
Time dripped from the trees
G - D
Left through the nail (I leapt through a lamp/land/lap(?) (?))
G D G A
I fell to my knees before the throne
Bm G Bm
And the crown was covered jewels, sparkling schools
A
The beautiful faun/falls/[?]
G A
The magnificent battle was fought
Bm G A
And Cinderella's soldier fish was caught
Bm A
And the lady from the lake
Bm A
Who helped me to escape
G Em A
Led me to myself at last
Em A Bm /A/D
Though I danced with the dolls in the doll house

G D G D
The flower fled from my feet,
G D G D
Tom Sawyer voice through the hole of the key,
Bm A
Landed so gently.
D G D
Castles cover the cave,
G D G D
I had no choice, the visions were brave
Bm A
And the phantoms were friendly,
Bm G
And Pirate Jenny was dancing for pennies,
Bm A
The knucklebones tossed in a spin,
G A
There were silver songs on her skin.
Bm G A
And she wasn't caring when the ship came in.

And the lady from the lake
Helped me to escape
Led me to myself at last,
Though I danced with the dolls in the doll house

D G D
My costume dropped to the floor,
G D G D
Naked at last, I couldn't fight any-more,
Bm A
And the service was rendered.
D G D G D
A poem fell from the wine, buried the past.
G D Bm A
The future was mine and the present sur-rendered.
Bm G
And the ballet master is beckoning faster,
Bm A G A
The ballerina was posed, in the fragile beauty we froze.
Bm G A
Let go, let go, let go, let go, let go.

And the lady from the lake
Who helped me to escape
Left me with myself at last
Though I danced with the doll in the doll house
