"Briar Rose" as written by and Aoife O'donovan....
Rose. Briar Rose
Why you look so sad and all alone
Did you prick your thumb did you skin your knee
Running down the stairs looking for me

Everything’s on fire and everyone’s asleep
And they’re burning wheels at the king’s feet
You, where’d you go. Who you running from

Everyone loves a sleeping beauty
On the stage or on the screen
So you take it like a man, do what you can, while you can.
Try not to scream

Your daddy he came upstairs to tuck you in
Why’d you look so scared?
Where’s the queen, your mother dear
She’s in the next room over, finger in her ears

She doesn't want to hear, she thinks you’re a liar
So you light a match, and you cast your spell, and you start the fire
Then you try to run but you don’t get far
You’re gonna lie for a century, dreaming in the dark

Everyone loves a sleeping beauty
On the stage or on the screen
So you take it like a man, do what you can, while you can.
Try not to scream

Someday I’ll come looking for ya
Through the roses and the thorns
I’ll come crawling through it all
It might take a hundred but I’ll be here when the smoke clears
To tear down the wall

Everyone loves a sleeping beauty
The northern lights are out tonight
Aurora can you hear me? I know you’re weary
Open up your eyes. You’ll be alright.
