‘Gwendolyn’ lyrics

These lyrics go along with the audition cut for the song “Gwendolyn”.


It seems, in my family, a truth is assumed
That each woman’s born lacking a husband
So all of my life I’ve been polished and groomed
Always knowing I’m bound for a dead end
My mother the sheriff’s tomorrow arranged
The baron will wed me and I’ll be exchanged
A new family name, but the rest is unchanged
And each one believes I am theirs
But I’m planning a life just for me
I’ll not be a wife or lady
From daughter to bride, never Gwen on my own
The path that’s before me seems written in stone
Yes tomorrow my wedding arrives
It’s the future my mother contrives
A sham baroness bound by corset and dress
But this woman has plans
