A/N: I was thinking about how so many people's crushes run off with other girls... and how the person crushing on them always feels second bested. I figured all the other girls at the Ball would hate Cinderella even though the people reading the fairytale are completely on her side.


Belle of the Ball

Tonight, I am beautiful

With all the other beautiful people in the room

We await our Prince to come

Dance with us, one by one

Until the moon is bright, gone the sun

-

Tonight, they are beautiful

With all the other beautiful people in the room

We have our expensive gowns

And glittering eyes

Lighting up so mesmerized

-

Tonight, you are beautiful

With all the other beautiful people in the room

You are the Prince, the lone heartthrob

Yet with so many stunning girls you see

Why do I have such a hope you'll pick me?

-

It's because I see you past the body

Past your brown eyes, I know you inside

And though there are so many others who say the same thing

I'm the only girl who hasn't lied

-

Tonight, we can be beautiful

With all the other beautiful people in the room

You could sweep me off my feet

And we could live in a castle together

Always in love, forever and ever

-

Tonight, she is beautiful

With all the other beautiful people in the room

We watch in envy at her troubled past

With eyes so blue, and skin so pale

She's the perfect princess to our stolen fairytale

-

Tonight, you are beautiful

With all the other beautiful people in the room

You have her in your strong, loving arms

And I can do nothing but watch my perfect fella

As he walks out the door with his Cinderella

-

The loving gaze you held in your eyes for her

Twisted my young heart into a shade of dark blue

And even though you're perfect for each other

She'll never know you like I know you
