As Ella forages for firewood in a dewy forest, she wishes that the world could be as lovely as it looks.

“Prologue” LYRICS

The fields are aglow in autumn yellow,
And the sky is a robin’s egg blue.
It makes you wish,
When you fall asleep,
You will dream about the view.

Bizarre and improbable and pretty
As a page from the fairy tale books,
It makes you wish
That the world could be
As lovely as it looks.

It makes you wish
That the world could be
As lovely as it looks.
