These Palace Walls is a song from the Aladdin on Broadway musical. In the song, it deal with Princess Jasmine who wants more than life in the palace and is persuaded by her handmaidens to go see the world.
Jasmine: A princess must say this, 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 They 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
Why 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
Lady 1: I don't know princess for someone like you the outside world might kind of overwhelming.
Jasmine: Is that a promise?
Lady 2: I think it might do her some good.
Jasmine: You do?
Lady 2: Honey, I've never seen somebody who needed to get out more. Lady: Told to show devotion every day And not second guess it
Jasmine: If a new emotion comes my way
Ladies: You suppress it
Jasmine: What would be your suggestion?
Lady: Standing on your own two feet
Lady: 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
All: 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.
All: Something awaits beyond these palace walls.
