    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?

    Re: The fairy tale is back on

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

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