Willy DeVille) Lyrics. Come my love, I'll tell you a tale of a boy and girl and their love story and how he loved her oh, so much, and all the charms she did posse. This love was stronger than the powers so dark, A prince could have within his keeping; His spells to weave and steal a heart Within her breast, but only sleeping. My love is like a storybook story. But it's as real as the feelings I feel. But it's as real as the feelings I feel; it's as real as the feelings I feel.
Willy and Mark Knopfler worked together on the 1987 album Miracle, which Mark produced, and which featured what may be DeVille’s most well known song. Storybook Love was also used on Mark’s soundtrack for The Princess Bride, and was nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Song. After about 15 years away, Willy returned to New York, and continued to record and tour regularly. His 16th and final release, Pistola, came out in 2008. He was due to go out on the road for a tour in 2009, but was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, causing those plans to be cancelled. Sadly, while undergoing preparations.
