This song really came to me as I read my children the fairytales I grew up with as a child. I began to see an overarching theme with these stories and movies. It was a reoccuring theme that a person would come and rescue you and make your life great. Wow what a lot of pressure to put on a person, and what a true fairytale. I know in my life no person has even filled a role as a savior. People were not designed to be saviors they were designed to worship the Lord. There is only one Savior and that is the Prince of Peace. He will never let you down, and is the only real happy ending. He slays my dragons daily.
We still read and love fairytales we just do it with more perspective now.

Isaiah 9:6 Isaiah 43:11 Mathew 24:30
Verse 1
I grew up hearing stories of princes that could save the day.
Those fairytales didn’t hold true when the dragons came.
Their fire was raining down. Their fire was raining down.
Then my prince came to save the day.
Chorus: Let me tell you about the Prince of Peace.
Shed his blood and rescued me.
He cast the dragons out and keeps me safe beneath his wings.
He’s the one that I believe. He’s the prince the Prince of Peace.
Verse 2
No one can defeat my Prince Jesus I’m safe in his hands.
Darkness can not hold up when light takes its stand.
His grace is raining down. His grace is raining down.
His kingdom is at hand.
Chorus
Bridge: Hes coming back in the clouds. With trumpets blowing all around and everyone will be on their knees.
Chorus
End: I grew up hearing stories of princes that could save the day
