The Marsh King’s Daughter.
Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales,
with illustrations by W. Heath Robinson.
London, Constable & Co. Ldt.
This edition was first published in 1913, and reissued in 1917.

“Our princess moaned and wept. Her tears fell on the elder-stump, and it was quite moved, for it was the Marsh King himself, who lives in the quagmire. I saw the stump turn itself, so it wasn’t only a trunk, for it put out long, muddy boughs like arms. Then the unhappy girl was frightened, ans sprang aside into the quivering marsh, which will not bear me, much less her. In at once she sank, and down with her went the elder-stump - it was he who pulled her down. Then a few big black bubbles, and no trace of her left. She is engulfed in the marsh, and will never return to Egypt with her flower… ”



i. marsh king’s daughter eisley

“Come on come on, let’s take a chance now, we could fall in love. Stealing to your window again, now I say, ‘We could fall in love’ sighing in exasperation. ‘No’, you say again, ‘This simply is not love’.  And I just know that we could work out  even though you’re royalty and I am not, but there’s a chance that you are wrong and I am right this time.”

ii. sleep alone bat for lashes

“You know, my darling, I can’t stand to sleep alone. No, sweetheart, in the dark to call my own, you’re my own, you’re my own, I can sing it, I can grow. But the darkness is a stranger and I’m lonely, lonely, lonely lone.”

iii. bravest everything yuna

“Lovely, that’s what you are to me. I love you when you’re strong, I love you when you’re weak. Lovely, you shine so bright, I love you when you’re wrong, I love you when you’re right. Sometimes they try to break you, but just be good to your heart. Sometimes they try to change you, don’t let them tear you apart.”

iv. trouble sleeping corinne bailey rae

“It’s late and I’m feeling so tired, having trouble sleeping. This constant compromise between thinking and breathing. Could it be I’m suffering because I’m never give in? Won’t say that I’m falling in love. Please, please, tell me I don’t seem myself. Couldn’t I blame something else?”

v. empty gold halsey

“I, I must confess how hard I try to breathe through the trees of loneliness. And you, you must confess how hard you need to see through the heart beating out my chest. Feel like we’ve been falling down like these autumn leaves, but baby don’t let winter come, don’t let our hearts freeze.”

vi. girls like girls hayley kiyoko

“Tell the neighbors I’m not sorry if I’m breaking walls down, building your girl’s second story, ripping all your floors out. Saw your face, heard your name, gotta get with you. Girls like girls like boys do, nothing new. Isn’t this why we came? Gotta get with you.”

vii. don’t you remember? adele

“When will I see you again? You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said, no final kiss to seal any sins, I had no idea of the state we were in. I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness, and a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head, but don’t you remember? Don’t you remember the reason you loved me before?”

viii. mercy duffy

“I love you, but I gotta stay true, my morals got me on my knees. I’m begging, please, stop playing games. I don’t know what this is, ‘cause you got me good just like you knew you would. I don’t know what you do, but you do it well. I’m under your spell.”

ix. you’re so cool, i’m so freaky kate nash

“I’ve got big plans, I’ve got something to say. Tomorrow is important and so is the next day. I don’t know how I feel. Want to feel something real. Well, nothing is real. Is that what you say? Well everything’s fake, so you’re running away. ‘Cause you’re so cool, you’re so cool and I’m a waste of space. You’re so cool and I don’t understand it. You’re so cool and I have never been cool. You’re so cool and I’m a freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky girl.”

x. human gabrielle aplin

“You’re a spark without flame, I’m a desert in the rain. You’re a mountain and I’m a stepping stone. So walk away from your pride, it’s a demon is disguise and it won’t help you to calm the swelling tide. Oh, show me that you’re human, you won’t break. Oh, love your flaws and live for your mistakes. And beauty’s on the surface wearing thin, come closer show the marks upon your skin, show me that you’re human.”

xi. things i fancy daniela andrade

“Minutes they turn into hours and worries they all are subdued, and nothing else matters but being slow and still underneath the light of the moon. I can’t make the time go faster, the week it feels so long alone. So when I find myself tucked away in bed, I wish upon a star to dream with you instead, ‘cause I like the feel of dancing, but I fancy it more with you. ‘Cause there’s nothing as lovely than your whisper in my ear, ‘you’re looking great my dear, now let’s get out of here’.”

xii. big eyes lana del rey

“With your big eyes and your big lies I saw you creeping around the garden. What are you hiding?I beg your pardon, don’t tell me, ‘nothing’. I used to think that I could trust you. I was your woman, you were my knight and shining companion.”

xiii. almost lover a fine frenzy

“The sweetest sadness in your eyes, clever trick. I never want to see you unhappy, I thought you’d want the same for me. Goodbye, my almost lover. Goodbye, my hopeless dream. I’m trying not to think about you, can’t you just let me be? So long, my luckless romance, my back is turned on you. Should have known you’d bring me heartache,  almost lovers always do.”

xiv. raindrops regina spektor

“You don’t know but that’s okay, you might find me anyway. Don’t you know that I belong arm in arm with you, baby? In a town that’s cold and gray, we will have a sunny day. Don’t you know that I belong arm in arm with you, baby? I do not know where does it go, when it goes suddenly though everything’s slow and I miss you so.”
