Emma Swan
Once I lived in darkness
Out there my own
Left to brave the world alone
Everything seemed hopeless
No chance to break free
Couldn't hear the song inside of me
Once upon a time a song inspired them
Be brave
They gave me up because my fate was as the one who'd save
The world from your dark magic
And the wicked things you do
They placed a song inside my heart
More powerful than you
All the years of running
No, not anymore
I know what I'm living for
I'm no longer searching
Turns out all along
The answer was inside me
With a song


Song NotesEdit

  • About the song, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis say it is "a super emotional song that really [...] kind of expresses essence of the character and, in may ways, sums up her journey thus far". They describe Jennifer Morrison as "amazing".[1]
