What Will You Do When It Rains

So you're the queen of hearts 
Barefoot summer grass green and cool
Trade that tiara and party dress 
A princess is now the fool 
And its dreams not dragons laid slain
What will you do when it rains

What will you do when it rains
When Mr. Perfect is Mr. Pain
When your Prince Charming is so alarming
Love songs are a sad refrain
What will you do when it rains

Unicorns pure they surrender themselves
Gilded brows genuflect at your knees
Open your eyes to the stark surprise 
The fairy tale hero you think you see
Mr. Right is Joe Mundane
What will you do when it rains 

Love confronts and love contends 
A battle over but war won't end
Only the strong remain
Life's not fair and love is war
The hardest fight worth fighting for
When you lose you gain
What will you do when it rains
