Ever After

I.

Once upon a time in a castle faraway

There was a prince who stole my heart away

He took my breath with every smile he gave,

And I thought forget midnight, we can dance the night away

II

I was ready to pin my heart on his sleeves,

But his eyes fixed on another damsel in distress,

No witch, no spell, no fairy can stop you,

You are blind, so's my heart now trailing after you.

Refrain

Oh, midnight came too soon,

The magic gone before I knew,

I was left with his glass slipper at my feet

and his poisoned apple slipping through my fingertips…

Chorus:

I believe, I believe in love and all the magic I know it could bring,

I believe, I believe in love, it's just I know it's not for me…

I'm tired of waiting for that prince or knight to come save me

Maybe I'll just settle for the frog or jester to cry with me…

And maybe ride me off into the sunset…

III.

I'm scared of waiting for love up a tower,

I don't think I can grow my hair that long

I'd prob'bl fall asleep out of sheer boredom,

Most likely end up pulling my hair out…

IV.

I don't have the hand to paint with colors of the wind,

Nor do I have the pow'r to turn my fins into skin,

I'd fly you high above if you'd just let me be your wings,

I could only give you love my prince, I could only sing..

Refrain 2:

And the years came by so slow,

They taught and I began to know,

The stars can't somehow grant my wish,

I had better leave before my screams turn me to a witch…

Chorus

V.

Wishing wells are full of both gold coins and my tears,

The magic beans cannot plant hope in my heart of griefs…

No carpet, no enchanted rose, no pearls from the deep blue sea…

Can lure me out of my world, my life, my glass coffin…

VI.

In despair I turned to talking trees for she was wise,

And asked the mirror who knows the truth for some advice

And I ran after talking clouds so I'd always remember…

And they all smiled and talked to me and asked me what's the matter…

I'm tired of chasing white rabbits across wonderland,

I'm tired of chasing princes and end up in sinking sands,

I'm tired of waiting for that prince or knight to come save me

Maybe I'll just settle for the frog or jester to cry with me…

They told me sometimes beasts can also turn into prince,

And sometimes, frogs can turn to charming princes, with a kiss…

Maybe it's time to give you a kiss… then maybe we'll ride off into the sunset…

Chorus til fade.

End!

Hope you like it. :D R&R. :D
