A song for Emma and Hook from Once Upon A Time (from the book Before He Was Famous)

B3wJSLIIYAEjJalIt just occurred to me that this shared love for what Once Upon a Time fans call #CaptainSwan can also be summed up in a song I wrote in one of my books! In Before He Was Famous, best friends Chloe and Noah grow up with a Peter Pan connection. Noah writes this song for Chloe. I like to think maybe it could also be about Hook and Emma.

By the way, I borrowed this photo from the Instagram user neverlandspirate, also on Twitter @purpletulip357. Thank you! x

You stitched my shadow onto the soles of my shoes

Said careful Peter, don’t lose it,

I’ll be watching you

For all our talk of faith and trust

Our lives are made of pixie dust

And you’re the only dream I’ve had come true

 

I’m bound to my shadow

I’m stitched and tied and stuck like glue

This Peter Pan is all grown up

But I’ll never grow out of you

 

So speak of flights of fancy, let’s remember how we danced

And every Tinker-Bell who broke the spell

Never really stood a chance

Peter, you said, fly with me

Come back to never land

And where there was a lost boy

Stands before you a man

 

There are pirates in the ocean,

There are crocs who’ll snap our plans in two

But I’ll be flying high until the sky turns blue

There are pirates in the ocean

Other people get their hooks in you

But let’s keep flying up, let’s keep on flying through

 

I’m bound to my shadow

I’m stitched and tied and stuck like glue

This Peter Pan is all grown up

But I’ll never grow out of you
