    Default The fairy tale is back on

    And now I'm off to meet
    his parents at a ball.
    Just look at all
    the gowns he sent!
    The fairy tale is back ON
    as long as the evil
    queen doesn't ruin it.


    What the "on" means here?

    We can't isolate on; it's part of a phrasal verb.

    The fairy tale is back on means The fairy tale has resumed.
