I had a way then
Losing it all on my own
I had a heart then
But the queen has been overthrown
Think of the Queen of Hearts.
Think of Alice in Wonderland.
The moral of that story is to view the world with childlike wonder, alas the queen has been overthrown causing Ellie fall of this path and loose her “way”.
