Check out some of the lyrics:

A paper crown, and a heart made of glass
A tattered gown, and her kingdom of ash
She walks alone, can never look back
The story of a queen whose castle has fallen to the sea
She’ll make it out, but she’s never the same
She’s lookin’ down, at the scars that remain
But you hold your ground, though your kingdoms in flames
Cause it’s the story of a queen who’s castle has fallen to the sea
Knowing there’s no one who will be a king that will come and save his queen

When all she needs, and all she wants, and all she finds
When all she is, and ever was, is compromised
Cause there’s no one to love her
You built your walls too high
And there’s no one to love you when you build your walls too high
