She thought that every thing she did was said and done

And no one step she took could change her day

She didn't see the reason to keep going on

When nothing even ever went her way

She woke up to the rising sun each Sunday morning

And walked right by the church without a glance

She never thought that she'd amount to nothing

She never thought she'd be without romance

This is not your normal

Fairy tale

There is no knight to save her

From the dragon in her heart

There is no prince to come and

Sweep her off of her feet

There's nothing but a shadow

To hide a lonely heart

She has a job but doesn't make much money

Just enough to keep herself alive

But sometimes when she sits alone at night

She wonders why she really even tries

Because this is not your normal

Fairy tale

There is no knight to save her

From the dragon in her heart

There is no prince to come and

Sweep her off of her feet

There's nothing but a shadow

To hide a lonely heart

Tonight when she got home to an empty house

She went upstairs to take a bath

She came upon a bible underneath her bed

And started to read about God's wrath

The tears began to flow on out

She began to scream and shout

She never could believe these lies

She never wanted to be alive

This is not your normal fairy tale

There is no knight to save her

To slay the dragon in her heart

There is no prince who will come

To sweep her off of her feet

There's nothing but a shadow

To hide her lonely heart

The days have come and the days have go

And nothing's really changed in her life

She still works for a crummy job

With still no pay

But she doesn't care it's just good to be alive

This is not your normal fairy tale

There is no sparkle or glamour

To brighten up her day

All she wants is to live her life

The best she can

And though there's no one to love her

She'll love life 'til the day she dies
