Princes in the Tower

Music and Lyric by David W. Jacobsen

You think you know
How things will be
You think the path for you is certain but
There is no guarantee
And the ones you trusted may turn
When winter ends for them

A path can wind
A cruel surprise
What once was promised can be taken
And you won't see your demise
Written on the face of time it happens fast, so swift

You spend your whole life waiting
For the appointed hour
But fates can turn just like the princes in the tower
Thinking it's all assured well
Others still lust for power
Keep your guard recall the princes in the tower

Secret mischiefs
Where you don't see
A sleep of calm can be turned
Into something endlessly
Beware those who you believe
Are on your side today

The roads ahead
And those behind
Diverge in ways you didn't see
How fast it all declined
A world that you believed was waiting dsappears

You spend a lifetime waiting
For the appointed hour
But fates can turn just like the princes in the tower
Thing it's all assured well
Others still lust for power
Keep your guard recall the princes in the tower

Expecting familiar taste
So sweet, but it turns to sour
You never see it changed like princes in the tower
Thinking you're safe from sorrow
But it may soon devour
You never see it come like princes in the tower

Coronate
Not your fate
Lost so fast
Lost so fast

This song uses the literal meaning of Expecting Different Results, as in the life and world you expected for yourself isn't how things actually work out. You didn't see the unexpected change coming. In this case, you're Prince Edward V and you expected to be King, but your uncle (Richard III) steals the thrown and locks you in the Tower of London. After writing songs about less known US Presidents, I figured I should try some songs about British Monarchs.
