Life is meaningless without you
Love can be such a beautiful torture
My heart breaks as I long for you
Love can be such lovely torture

I will climb the hills, draw my sword
And take down anyone who tries to stand in front of me
Please know I'll never run away without you in my arms

One day lovers will dream of this undying kiss
Not of romeo or juliet
Stories told of our love will never die

I've slain the most unholy things
I've endured such terrific pain
Finally I'll feel your caress again
I've braved the cold and lonely seas
I have prevailed against the odds, then again

I will climb the hills, draw my sword
And take down anyone who tries to stand in front of me
Please know I'll never run away without you in my arms

One day lovers will dream of this undying kiss
Not of romeo or juliet
Stories told of our love will never die

Will you forgive what I've done
To give you four white horses?
Will you forgive what I've done
To give you four white horses?

Will you forgive what I've done
To give you four white horses?
Will you forgive what I've done
To give you four white horses?
Will you forgive what I've done
To give you

One day lovers will dream of this undying kiss
Not of romeo or juliet
Stories told of our love will never die

    General Comment:this song refers to the novel THE PRINCESS BRIDE

    by william goldman


    "as you wish" was something the main character , westley, said to the one he loved whenever shed command him to do chores. as you wish really meant "i love you"

    its a sword and fantasy novel and film, thus the reference to swords and how westley over came every obstacle in his way to get to buttercup


    the book says they love was the most passionate and most pure, and their kiss at the end blew every famous kiss out of the water

    the four white horses refer to the four white horses that fezzik, a giant , finds after they save buttercup from prince humperdink,


    its a great novel and a great film too

    i love it

    General Comment:Lovely, beautiful song.
    It reminds me of "Twilight", but I think it is only because I'm reading the book. You know how that works.

    General Comment:this song is the reason for the album title. their love has become a legend. noted above Romeo and Juliet. but it's also based on the novel and movie the Princess Bride
