These Palace Walls
"These Palace Walls" is a song from Aladdin sung by Princess Jasmine and her assistants, about Jasmine's desire to see life beyond the palace walls.

LyricsEdit

Jasmine:

A princess must say this, a princess must wear that.

A princess must marry a total stranger. It's absurd!
Suitors talk of love  But it's an act merely meant to throw me
How can someone love me when in fact, t'hey don't know me?
They want my royal treasure,

when all is said and done. It's time for a desperate measure

So I wonder, w'hy shouldn't I fly so far from here? I know the girl I might become here
Sad and confined And always locked behind these palace walls


Handmaiden 1:

I don't know princess for someone like you the outside world might kind of overwhelming.

Jasmine:

Is that a promise?

Handmaiden 2:

I think it might do her some good.

Jasmine:

You do?

Handmaiden 2:

Honey, I've never seen somebody who needed to get out more.


Handmaiden 1:

Told to show devotion every day

Handmaiden 3:

And not second guess it

Jasmine:

If a new emotion comes my way

All Handmaidens:

You suppress it

Jasmine:

What would be your suggestion?

Handmaiden 2:

Stand on your own two feet

All Handmaidens:

And ask why a certain question keeps repeating

Jasmine:

Why shouldn't I fly so far from here?

I know the girl I might become here

Follow your heart or you might end up cold and callous

Handmaidens: 

Love comes to those who go and find it  If you must dream then stand behind it

Jasmine:

Maybe there's more beyond these palace walls

What if I dared?

What if I tried?

Am I prepared for what's outside?

Why shouldn't I fly so far from here?

Something awaits beyond these palace walls.

Handmaidens and Jasmine:

Something awaits beyond these palace walls.
