& maybe when i wish hard enough,

i'll get my fairy-tale (free) oh-so-happy ending,

(please tell me, did you ever believe in prince charming

when you told me all those pretty-perfect stories?)

but you ought to know that now i can't even seem to remember

the last faded tatters of all those true-love-everily-afters,

or even the last time you talked to me like i was me and not anyone else

(should i act like one of your lifeless-porcelain dolls,

so you can play with me while i am broken inside?)
