Willy Deville: Storybook Love

El pedido fue concreto: “Necesitamos un tema para la película The Princess Bride. Es un cuento de hadas sobre el amor verdadero”.

El resultado fue está canción con la que terminó nominado al Oscar. Perdió con la patética canción de Dirty Dancing.

Ya lo escribí en otra ocasión. Esta es mi canción favorita. Otra creación hermosa de Willy.

Mierda, que se lo va a extrañar en la música.

Come my love Ill tell you a tale
Of a boy and girl and their love story
And how he loved her oh so much
And all the charms she did possess

Now this did happen once upon a time
When things were not so complex
How he worshipped the ground she walked
And when he looked in her eyes he became obsessed

My love is like a storybook story
But its as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But its as real as the feelings I feel
Its as real as the feelings I feel

His love was stronger than the powers so dark
A prince could have within his keeping
His spells to weave and steal a heart
Within her breast but only sleeping

My love is like a storybook story
But its as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But its as real as the feelings I feel
Its as real as the feelings I feel

Now he said, dont you know I love you oh so much
And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?
She said, dont you know that storybook loves
Always have a happy ending?
Then he swooped her up just like in the books
And on his stallion they rode away

My love is like a storybook story
But its as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But its as real as the feelings I feel
