  1. One Shoe

From the recording Song Catcher

An empowered mash-up musical rewrite of the Snow White falling asleep/Cinderella shoe story, where the prince forgets to bring back her shoe and she makes the choice to sit on her own throne as Queen anyway.

Lyrics

She ate the apple, fell asleep, while the garden grew
Prince Charming got lost, never gave her back her shoe
She grew tired of being faithful to some ancient fairly land
She can’t believe in wishes that someone else commands

Queens don’t find thrones in castles made of sand
And they don’t find love in Never Never Land
They stumble along in fairy tales gone wrong
One shoe off, one shoe on

She treks on through the kingdom, wanders aimlessly
Discovers all the missing kings are on ships lost at sea
She sharpens her sword to provide and protect
She cuts the heads off dragons, watches two more grow back

Queens don’t find thrones in castles made of sand
And they don’t find love in Never Never Land
They stumble along in fairy tales gone wrong
One shoe off, one shoe on

The sharp edge of a broken dream
Is sure to leave a scar
Be careful not to fall
Upon a wishing star

She takes an unknown journey with a map she finds inside
Buried with her hidden treasure and dreams she once denied
She can’t see her destination, but She knows where to start
Her own words feed her power; Her self-love heals her heart

Queens do find thrones in castles they create
And they do find love and determine their own fate
They arrive where they belong, they rise and stand strong
One shoe off, one shoe on
One shoe off, one shoe on
One shoe off, one shoe on
