On her album called Waiting For The Hero, on which all songs are excellent and some, like this one, positively sublime:

Lines in parentheses are repeated in each verse.

HOW TO FIND TRUE LOVE
Anne Lister (Waiting For The Hero)

Walk into the forbidden forest (how does the story end?)
Fight your way through thorns and brambles (in the nightmare's den)
Treat each one you meet with kindness
There are so many kinds of blindness
The night is deep, and dark, and mindless (is that how the story ends?)

Tiptoe past the sleeping giant (how...)
Keep your courage, stay defiant (in...)
Steal the treasures from his keeping
There are so many ways of sleeping
No time to stop, for joy you're weeping (is that...)

Find the prince, find how to kiss him ()
Don't search too hard or you might miss him ()
Sew a shirt of stinging nettles
Burn your thumb on a boiling kettle, and
Burst out of the cage of metal ()

Does it have a happy ending? ()
Or is it heartbreak beyond mending? ()
Get out of a bag strung from the rafters
Tears of joy with tears of laughter
We'll live happily ever after, and
That's how the story ends.

Does it have a happy ending? ()
Or is it heartbreak beyond mending? ()
Get out of a bag strung from the rafters
Tears of joy and tears of laughter
We'll live happily ever after
That's how the story ends
That's how the story ends.
